The Thin White Ukes - "A Better Future" album launch

with special guests Olblique Strategies


The songs of David Bowie are much loved and often performed but rarely with the heartfelt beauty, acoustic subtlety and creative flair The Thin White Ukes bring to their hero's six-decade catalogue.

A Better Future is their second album of Bowie classics and obscurities, produced by Shane O'Mara, and lovingly arranged for small, precision strings and breathtaking three-part vocal harmony.

Distinguished drummer Ashley Davies will augment the elegantly attired trio for this very special album launch event. 

Opening the show is Melbourne's favourite acoustic Brian Eno tribute ensemble, Oblique Strategies.
