[singlepic id=448 w=320 h=240 float=right]Critically acclaimed musical collective The Gin Club are embarking on a series of shows in June because, well, they’re musicians and that’s what musicians do.
No album to promote (although they will be putting together a new compilation of rarities and out takes especially for the tour – see below), no agenda to push, just a chance to get back in/on the van/plane/booze for a few weeks.
Also, they’re going to release a live CD/DVD at the end of the year and they need to record a few more shows, so this tour will be a good chance to do that. So come along, you might end up being mildly famous.
They’re particularly excited about some of the support acts they’ve managed to cajole into playing with them – Melbourne’s HARMONY, the new project from Tom Lyngcoln (The Nation Blue), Amanda Roth (The Ukeladies) and Jon Chapple (McClusky) who play.. like dark white soul music with glorious female backing vocals.. they’re amazing.
They’ve also got talented indie songstress LAURA IMBRUGLIA, Melbourne via New Zealand’s HOWL AT THE MOON, and in Sydney they’ll be supporting Melbourne’s glorious WAGONS at the Annandale Hotel in what could be (but hopefully isn’t) their last show there.
All people through the door get a free download code for their new collection of b-sides, rarities and what not, “Hissy Fit Volume 2”.
