T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

Christchurch three-piece T54 are heading west this March for their first ever series of concerts outside their native New Zealand.

Playing 3 times in the city of Melbourne, Australia between March 19th and 23rd, T54arrive on the back of their recently released debut album In Brush Park and will be parading their wonderful blend of dream trash, acid guitar drones and spluttering fuzz pop with a selection of Melbourne's finest musical gems.

Having been up and down their home country since 2009 (including 2011's Big Day Out, and 2012's Camp A Low Hum) T54 have earned praise for their loud and intense live shows, loaded with charging distortion, insane feedback, robotic rhythms and wonderfully crafted pop songs.

Following four EPs and last year's full length "In Brush Park", they have been receiving cheerfully positive reviews and sympathetic mentions from the likes of Melbourne's The Beat, TheMusic.com.au (4 stars), Under the Radar + Rip It Up.

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
