Description

Now The Kite String Tangle jump-starts 2020 with new anthemic single ‘NORTH’ and the announcement of his forthcoming second studio album C()D3X dropping March 2020.

2019 was a breakout year for The Kite String Tangle with a shift to a harder, darker, more electronic sound, a residency in Berlin, sold out headline Australian shows and performances at some of Australia’s biggest regional Festivals.

C()D3X will be supported by a national album tour in May/June which will see audiences cram the dancefloor for The Kite String Tangle’s new darker, electrifying live show across capital cities and select regional towns.

‘NORTH’ - which comes along with a beautifully shot video from Dyllan Corbett – is another undeniable dancefloor anthem from the Brisbane artist/producer, with driving synths accompanied by Danny Harley’s signature vocals.

The single further strengthens the darker direction that The Kite String Tangle is taking which started with last year’s singles ‘P()L4R’ and ‘KILLING TIME’. 'P()L4R' was highly spun on triple j and a regular on the Shazam charts, followed by fan favourite ‘KILLING TIME’ featuring the brilliant vocals of Eliott.

The Kite String Tangle has also enlisted local and overseas talent to remix the new single, with both a Summer Festival ready remix of ’NORTH' from Motez and a peaktime 3am warehouse mix from the UK’s Shadow Child now available on all streaming services.

It’s been a busy couple of years for the Brisbane producer. The release of his debut self-titled album in 2017 which saw him nominated for an ARIA award, three national headline tours, much-talked about sets at Splendour in the Grass and FOMO festivals amongst others. In 2018 he released single ‘Give It Time’, won a Queensland Music Award, played captivating sets at local and international festivals.

Then there was also the release of mini album The Kite String Tangle Presents: In A Desperate Moment which resulted in two sold out shows with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Brisbane. All this came alongside the announcement of his own record label Exist. Recordings which has put out well received releases from Brisbane producer Golden Vessel and sibling duo Lastlings.

Description

Ancient Rome: Epic Innovators and Engineers is a family-friendly exhibition featuring carefully reconstructed replica machines that reflect one of the most technologically significant times in the human history.

The Roman Imperial period (52BC – 476AD) was an era of massive construction and large scale technical innovation that brought about unprecedented wellbeing. You will be surprised to see how much we inherited from 2,000 years ago—many of the objects, concepts and machines are still part of our modern lives.

Due to the ravages of time, very few pieces of ancient Roman technology and machinery have survived in their entirety. However - through studying archaeological finds and ancient texts, exhibition creators—Artisans of Florence in collaboration with the Niccolai Group (Firenze)—have reconstructed Ancient Roman technology using the same materials and techniques used thousands of years ago.

This exhibition includes models, catapults, frescoes, armour, weapons, busts, and much more.

Ancient Rome is best suited to primary school aged children though the entire family will enjoy learning about this fascinating era, including:

Military genius and mighty machines (Caesar’s army, discipline, tactics, war machines, armour, weapons)
All roads lead to Rome (measurements, transportation by road and sea, communication)
Building Rome (engineering - roads, bridges, buildings, monuments, aqueducts, tools, machines, techniques)
Entertainment (gladiators, colosseum, games, art, clothes, timekeeping, Roman life and people)
Discover this significant time in history as part of your family day out in Fremantle!

KWAME Please, Get Home Safe Tour (CANCELLED)

Ghana via Sydney rapper and producer Kwame first headline shows of 2020 will see Australia’s leading hip-hop prospect hit four metro cities around Australia.

  • Music:Concert Tours,Gig Guide,Popular Music

Description

The upcoming tour, presented by triple j, kicks off in Melbourne on March 28 and is followed by three further metro shows in Brisbane (The Triffid, April 3), Sydney (Metro Theatre, April 4) and Fremantle (April 11). Enlisting the help of renowned graphic designer Jonathan Zawada (Flume, The Presets) on poster art duties, was a no-brainer for Kwame who is a longtime fan of his work and is their first collaboration together. These shows mark the first headline tour since Kwame’s completely sold out 2019 EP dates and are expected to fill up quickly. 

They also land off the back of Kwame’s most recent single, 'NOBODY feat. E^ST’, which was premiered by Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1, and the second taste of his forthcoming third extended play. The track is a powerful anthem of self-belief; an ambitious leap in lyrical content and production, born out of Kwame's frustration with life, the creative industries and those who think they know it all.   “It's a reminder for myself and anyone else to listen to yourself, outside opinions are irrelevant,” says Kwame. 

This theme rings true for the visual accompaniment to the song also landing today. Filmed in Marrickville and directed by Zain Ayub and Kwame, this stunningly raw short film follows a life-changing narrative for a young, troubled Ghanaian boy facing hardships. “His new found friends mentor and nurture the courage within him so that he may move beyond despondency and feel free.” says Kwame.  

“The choice to shoot majority of the film in Marrickville reflects its raw texture, sense of realness and celebrates the multicultural background the suburb holds - which is synonymous with the films ideologies. The themes explored represent the diffusion of cultural and societal gaps thereby creating a more universal and globalist experience. The messages within the film are that race, age and status shouldn’t matter when one's back is against the wall.”

With such a strong and universally applicable message, it’s no surprise Kwame’s ethos is connecting all over. With huge performances at Splendour in the Grass, SXSW and appearances alongside industry heavyweights such as Migos, Skepta, 6lack, AJ Tracey and Peking Duk, Kwame has also been announced as support for A$AP Ferg’s March 4  Melbourne show. This will be Kwame’s first show of 2020 and an opportunity for fans to see his live set prior to his tour.
 
It’s difficult to find a corner of the Australian music scene that hasn’t been taken over by Kwame. Further expanding his already diverse catalogue, the collaborations have been immense for the Ghanaian Australian producer, writer, artist and engineer. Teaming up on party track ‘Summer Rain’ with Wave Racer, Kwame then joined Matt Corby on Triple One’s ‘So Easy’. 'NOBODY feat. E^ST’, is arguably his most reflective work to date and a clear indication of the heights this boundary pushing artist is hoping to take Australian hip-hop to.

Description

Having been performing solo shows for over decade, Creed Bratton, who played an over the top version of himself, as the mysterious, quality-assurance director that smells like mung-beans, lives for scuba diving and can’t tell the difference between an apple and a potato, is finally heading to Australia with his live show next year.

Set to hit Australian shores in June 2020, Creed’s variety show – which includes live music, stand-up comedic and untold stories from both his life and time on ‘The Office’ – will land in capital cities around Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.

While many will know Creed Bratton as the mysterious, eccentric and hilarious character from the hit TV series ‘The Office’ (US) and for roles in hits like 1985's Mask, the US comedian is also an established musician, with a career in music that spans nearly five decades.


As lead guitarist for legendary American rock group the Grass Roots, Creed played on the band’s first four albums, shaping their folk rock/psychedelic pop sounds, before breaking away in the 1970’s to pursue a solo career and comedic work.

“Since I first came up with the idea for this variety tour a few years ago” Said Creed Bratton “I’ve always wanted to head Down Under and perform it for Australian audiences. I couldn’t be happier to announce that I’m finally making my way there this coming February.”

In addition to live music from Bratton’s longstanding career, the live show will also include annecdotes from Creeds time on set of ‘The Office’ as well as the highs and lows of a careers that has to be heard about first-hand to be believed.

Frenchy - Ruthless

  • Performing Arts:Comedy

Description

Known for his lanky frame, dirty jokes & pre-pubescent moustache, Frenchy only promises one thing from his comedy show - laughs. This ain’t a TED talk, this ain’t 60 Minutes, this is an odd-looking humanoid telling a bunch of dark jokes you shouldn’t laugh at, but do.

There may be some songs, there may be some awkward break-dancing and there may be a grown man imitating a pokemon who knows what you’ll get when you come to a Frenchy show.

For over half a decade Frenchy has been turning it up with his epic, one of a kind live shows. He writes and performs a brand new show every year, and each show is more ridiculous than the last.

A brilliant, off the cuff improviser – his ‘crowd work’ is some of the best in the world and always keeps the show feeling fresh & spontaneous.

With over a billion views on YouTube and Facebook combined, Frenchy may be known for his YouTube videos, but it’s on the stage where he really excels.

Edgy, Dirty & Absurd, this show will have you wondering if he is some sort of bogan mastermind, or simply a bird-shaped man who’s sniffed too much paint.

Description

Blending their signature hooky choruses with a shadowy undertone, ‘Live In Life’ was co-produced by the band and Konstantin Kersting (Tones & I, Mallrat) & recorded in the same WW2 bunker that birthed their third and most recent album, 2018’s LO LA RU.

Premiered on triple j Breakfast, the world of ‘Live In Life’ follows a person over the course of one night as they come to terms with the gravity of a relationship breakdown. As the sun sets, they’re feeling positive about the next chapter – a feeling that’s quickly swallowed by the weight of regret as night falls, by which point the damage is done and they realise it’s time to move on. 

This will be one of the best concerts of the summer, so make sure to get your tickets as soon as they go on sale!
