Xmas Even - 2 shows at the Brunswick Ballroom

Wednesday 22 December with special guests Folk Bitch Trio

Thursday 23 December with special guests Nick Batterham

On the back of their first ever ARIA Top 20 Album (#18 debut), a 5-Star Guardian review and Album of the Week on Double J, all for their new DOUBLE album 'Reverse Light Years', Melbourne indie icons EVEN will finally return the stage in December, when they present their annual XMAS EVEN shows, this year over two nights at the sumptuous Brunswick Ballroom.

"The Melbourne band's eighth album is their best yet - a musical cornucopia of glam stompers, magnificent power pop and epics... This might be the best album in its field since Paul Kelly's Gossip. ***** " - Andrew Stafford, The Guardian

“This is music to get lost in…” – Martin Boulton, The Age

"If you like guitar-driven pop-rock in just about any form, you'll almost certainly find something for you here … You could think of 'Reverse Light Years' as something of a sampling platter, but that doesn't do justice to how harmoniously these songs live together. " - Dan Condon, Double J/ABC.net.au

“’Reverse Light Years’ is immense in every sense – 17 tracks that sparkle and shine with varying influences sharing a common thread; an ear for melody and a knowing sense of fun and excess. Guitar-based jangle pop that flexes its muscles and strikes a pose.” – Arun Kendall, Backseat Mafia

"If you need any proof of Naylor’s guitar genius, all you have to do is listen to Even’s new album, 'Reverse Light Years'." - Jeff Jenkins, Rhythms
