Sticking their Necks out
The Necks (pictured) are one of Australia’s most highly-regarded musical ensembles. Critical acclaim worldwide reflects a growing realisation that these three Australians have created a way of making music unlike anything else.
Since their beginnings nearly 22 years ago, The Necks have continued to craft a hypnotic, ritual-like concert experience. As The Guardian (UK) wrote: “The Necks can find eternity in a grain of sand.” Their completely improvised concerts on acoustic piano, bass and drums have the room ringing with sound and the audience utterly mesmerised.
Long-term fans of this unique band will be at the gig at the Byron Community Centre this Sunday, February 21, for their annual fix as The Necks slowly conjure their sound mountains out of thin air, but if you haven’t heard them before, go along and check them out. You’ve never known two hours to pass so quickly.
The music starts at 7.30pm.
Tickets are $25/20 and available from the centre or at www.byroncentre.com.au.
