Amanda Palmer is returning to Australia. Good. A musician, artist, writer and political activist all rolled into one, Amanda Palmer is one half of the cabaret-punk duo The Dresden Dolls, and more recently, a solo artist whose uncompromising vision has frequently made her a focus for both admiration and controversy. She’s a fearless singer and songwriter and an audaciously expressive pianist. Amanda will perform at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Monday, March 8. Tickets are $33 pre-sold from www.kupromotions.oztix.com.au and $40 at the door. And it’s an 18+ event. And it starts at 8pm.
Fresh from recording their new album, Katie Noonan and her new band The Captains are coming to Bangalow A&I Hall on Saturday, March 27. Katie first received widespread praise as the angel-voiced songstress of indie-pop band George. She has since taken audiences on excursions through jazz, pop, rock and classical music. Also performing that night is Brian Campeau. His new album Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring is interesting in that he uses one instrument for each song on the album, and plays in whichever way seems to work best at the time. Hmmm. Tickets are $30 from Barebones Bangalow, Mullum Books, All Music & Vision Stores (Byron, Ballina, Lismore) and www.kupromotions.oztix.com.au. Or $35 at the door.
