– Cosmic Psychos will break an 18-month drought of gigs with back-to-back nights at – where else? – their beloved Tote. The Nov. 3 date was announced promptly after the Nov. 2 one sold out “in a matter of hours,” so don’t sleep on this one once tickets go on sale at 9am Monday (Oct. 1) via the Tote's website. The sets promise to cut right across the band’s nearly 30-year discography, and there will be filming for a bonus disc of their crowd-funded doco Blokes You Trust. Support on the first night comes from The Dukes of Deliciousness, featuring the son of late Cosmic Psychos guitarist Robbie Rocket.
– Touring behind their upcoming Wrapped Coast 12”, My Disco are doing four East Coast dates in addition to their sold-out Melbourne Festival gig with Shellac. The 12” comes out globally Oct. 16 through Temporary Residence Ltd., with a bonus track via iTunes and vinyl on sale in person at the Shellac gig.
Thurs Sept 27 – ANU Bar, Canberra, ACT
Sat Sept 29 – GOODGOD second birthday @ GOODGOD, Sydney, NSW
Sun Sept 30 – The Patch, Wollongong, NSW
Fri Oct 12 – Tinning Street Galleries, Brunswick, VIC
– Kicking off last night in Sydney, Melbourne’s Nun are doing a gradual tour behind their defiantly catchy ‘Solvents’ 7”, out now on Nihilistic Orbs. Of the remaining dates, all but Adelaide feature support from label-mates Repairs. “Nun’s sound ranges from sinister drone orgy to hyperkinetic synth punk and über-saturated gothic psychosis,” says the Miles Brown-penned bio. In other words, expect smoke.
