Music + justice = massive change
Aurora Jane and Massive Change (AJMC) will do their funky original thing at Nimbin Hotel on Friday, September 29, from 7.30pm, and at the Winsome Hotel in Lismore on Saturday, September 30, from 8pm.
Punters will be able to hear songs from AJMCs new album Universal Language, which is available now in stores (and probably at the gig as well). The band is embarking on a huge national tour in October to promote it.
AJMCs singer and songwriter Jane Hole (aka Aurora Jane) infuses her rootsy, jazzy grooves with a political and philosophical lyric that enhances the relevance of the music. This band is part of an international music community that is against corporate globalisation. But, with or without the lyrical skills, AJMCs music is well danceable the groove is intoxicating.
Since her professional debut 10 years ago Aurora Jane has played hundreds of shows, touring throughout Australia, India, Canada, East Timor and New Zealand.
Aurora Janes new band Massive Change features the talents of Ben Karsay slapping skins, Linden Lester slapping the fat stringer, Carla Versitano slapping nothing, Dan Brown delicately slapping the keyboard and Tim Foley slapping anything and everything.
The band heads back to India (the scene of AJMC musical triumphs) in November before returning for the Australian summer festival scene.
