VICTORIA & SOUTH AUSTRALIA – MARCH 2017
From the golden age of indie-rock comes two giants of the era joining forces for two epic a day on the green concerts in March 2017.
The magnificent Hoodoo Gurus and the equally splendorous Violent Femmes will headline the events on Saturday 18 March in Rutherglen, Victoria and on Saturday 25 March in the Clare Valley, South Australia.
Joining our headliners will be the fabulous The Whitlams, Tim Rogers and Models.
The Gurus and Femmes played a sold-out national a day on the green tour in March this year and had such a racuous time, they knew they wanted to do it all over again!
Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes) said: “a day on the green defies belief by running the gamut of human emotion. The power of the Gurus, absurdity of the Femmes, pathos of The Whitlams, horniness of Tim Rogers and mystery of Models combine to remind us of everything that is good about humanity in this otherwise bleak time.”
With a treasure trove of much-loved classics like Bittersweet, The Right Time, Death Defying, 1000 Miles Away, Tojo and What's My Scene, The Gurus seem to get better with age, their sets always eliciting monstrous sing-alongs.
Matching that is the Femmes’ shambolic splendour and the unbridled gusto of Blister In The Sun, Gone Daddy Gone, Gimme The Car, Prove My Love, Freak Magnet, Hallowed Ground and Add It Up.
Add the caustic banter of Tim Freedman and the Whitlams’ lush tunes No Aphrodisiac and Blow Up The Pokies, the garrulous Tim Rogers previewing tracks from his brand new solo album and the alt-pop of I Hear Motion and Out Of Mind Out Of Sight from Models and March 18 at All Saints Estate or March 25 at Annie’s Lane Winery is where you wanna be!
