Dicey's Saturdays X Great Southern Nights w/ Party Dozen // Guests
Party Dozen is a sonic partnership loosely based on improvisation between saxophonist Kirsty Tickle and percussionist Jonathan Boulet. Their debut LP The Living Man earned critical acclaim in 2017, including ‘Album of The Week’ honours at Sydney’s FBi Radio amidst heavy national airplay (Triple J, Double J, RRR, 4ZZZ, 2SER).
They’ve toured relentlessly ever since – each performance a trial of physicality and an expression of maximalism. Like the legendary Dirty Three, the members seem to meld into one mind, oblivious to the viewer. Tickle effortlessly navigates Boulet’s ever-shortening attention span and wild tempo changes; form gradually materialises from chaos. Party Dozen took their notoriously challenging live show out with groups such as Liars, Viagra Boys and Tropical F*ck Storm.
Second album “Pray For Party Dozen” was released in May 2020 and cemented their place amongst the nation’s foremost sonic adventurers. Again the album scored Feature Album at Fbi, and gained support both domestically (Double J, RRR, ZZZ) and internationally (KCRW, BBC 6, Radio X).
