We're sorry! This event has been cancelled...
The event organisers have been in touch to let us know that the Scarecrow People play the music of XTC show scheduled for Friday 17 April 2020 has been cancelled.
Message from the event organiser:
There are plans that this show will be rescheduled with a new date later in 2020 or early 2021, however the performers felt that it was best to cancel for now and revisit possible future dates when the Covid-19 crisis is over. Take care everyone and thanks for your understanding.
Due to the number of cancellations, our refund process is taking slightly longer than usual. You don’t need to do anything; your ticket(s) will be automatically refunded back to your credit card/PayPal account and we’ll let you know when this has been done.

Please understand that given the extraordinary circumstances, our Fan Support teams are incredibly busy at the moment, so we encourage you not to contact us. Instead, you can find lots of information and answers to your questions in our information portal at tixsupport.moshtix.com.au.
Hailing from railway town Swindon, England, XTC is responsible for a string of memorable hits from the late 1970s, throughout the 1980s and well into the 1990s – “Senses Working Overtime”, “Making Plans For Nigel”, “Dear God”, “Generals and Majors”, “Are You Receiving Me”, and “The Mayor of Simpleton” – as well as a plethora of sublime music from 14 albums, celebrated for its brilliance by the initiated but criminally unheard by the public at large. It’s not exaggerating to suggest that XTC picked up where The Beatles left off – the songs of Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding really are that great.
Sydney’s Scarecrow People is a bunch of 6 or 7 musical maniacs dedicated to the musical marvels of XTC – harmonically dense but melodically immediate, at turns pastoral or compellingly rhythmic. The line-up is something of a collision between Frank Zappa tribute group Petulant Frenzy (three members) and Sydney power-pop heroes The Nature Strip (two members). These are Scarecrow Peoples’ first concerts outside of Sydney, where sightings are relatively rare in any case. You are invited to what is guaranteed to be a unique night of musical delights unlikely to be available again in this neck of the woods any time soon.
