Coming to a town near you - the GLUTTONS FOR PUNISHMENT tour: a ramshackle traveling rock'n'roll circus hitting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in February and March, leaving behind a wake of broken bottles, patchy memories and a cohort of very happy hungover people.
The Snowdroppers were out on the road being a nuisance for three months in 2015 off the back of the critically acclaimed new album BUSINESS. The band played to sold out shows across the country including a shit-hot set at BIGSOUND, Queenscliff Music Festival, and two headline performances in Sydney including Rolling Stone's Live Lodge (which sold out months in advance!).
This time they're taking an all new live and visual show out on the road and bringing some of the best rock going at the moment courtesy of The Hard Aches, The Strums and Twin Fires. There'll be laughs, crying, sausage sandwiches, strobe lights, and a giant inflatable fire-breathing London!
A stalwart of the country's Rock'n'Roll scene for years, The Snowdroppers have hand picked the line-up to provide a good ol' fashioned booty-shakin' and mischief makin' event. Top shelf entertainment for the whole family (18+ or reasonable quality fake ID required.) Adelaide two-piece The Hard Aches will bringing their no bullshit suburban punk-rock with Brissie mates The Strums getting nice and raucous with their upbeat party-punk. Sydney's Twin Fires add a bit of rock'n'soul to the proceedings and of course The Snowdroppers will be closing the night in an over-the-top avalanche of noise and good tunes.
With the same bill across each of the dates, GLUTTONS FOR PUNISHMENT will be a ball-tearingly good night out. This isn't a gig, it's a traveling party! (it's also a gig). Four of the country's most exciting live bands will tear it up with DJ's kicking things on until whenever o'clock for those who want to groove till late. Best part is that it's all for $20! That's cheaper than a movie! Or a train trip to the airport! Or the morning after pill!
These dates are BY DEMAND and TICKETS WILL SELL FAST. Don't be silly and get them quick for Christ's sake.
GLUTTONS FOR PUNISHMENT: THE DOCUMENTARY
The whole sorry affair will be documented by a film crew, farts and all, to be made into a film featuring the live show and a look into the reality of being an Australian touring band staring down a decade of being on the road.
