A SHIMMY SHAKIN' NIGHT OF LIVE ELECTRO/DANCE-POP WITH SUPER MASSIVE & YEN
Award winning Sydney dance/rock band Super Massive team with fellow electro-funksters Yen for a very special night of electro/dance-pop at the Excelsior Hotel Surry Hills on Saturday 7th March. Newcomers Life Bitter Soul support.
The night showcases three of Sydney's best up and coming electronic/dance rock bands. With all bands on the bill sharing a love of deep rhythm, shimmering synths, poetic pop, not to mention lights and lasers, it's set to be a spectacular, shimmy-shakin' night, if not an outright dancing frenzy, if both Super Massive and Yen's previous shows are anything to go by.
The show is at the Excelsior Hotel, 64 Foveaux St, Surry Hills. The night starts at 8pm. Tickets are $10- at the door.
Sydney's famous Mardi Gras Parade is on the same night a short hop & skip away, so you can watch the parade then mosey down Foveaux Street to the Excelsior and keep on dancing and partying as the bands hit the stage.
Super Massive's show is an artful blend of sophistication and sleaze. Combining creative, evocative synthscapes with slammingly funky live instrumentation and an entertaining frontwoman who's been compared to Siouxsie Sioux, Karen O, Peaches and Kylie, it's a heady mix that will make you feel like you are under a voodoo spell of dance.
The band had a fantastic year in 2008, releasing their self-titled debut EP to rave reviews, topping the Triple J Unearthed Dance Chart, playing huge shows of their own at inner city venues such as Candy's Apartment and The Supper Club as well as Surry Hills Festival and two north coast tours. They also have a Best Alternative Artist MusicOz Award under their belts. The band are already off to a great start for 2009, having toured Tasmania in February and leaving Maitland crowds' tongues wagging and motors running a couple of weeks back after a crowd-lathering show there.
Yen have crammed venues such as The Basement, The Vanguard, and Melt with their lush vibes and soulful take on electro-pop. They are also festival veterans, having played at the Peats Ridge Festival, Carriageworks 'Underbelly' festival, Playground Weekender and Newtown Festival, where they have whipped crowds into a dancing frenzy.
Newcomers Life Bitter Soul have already notched up a dozen gigs in Sydney and Melbourne after debuting at the Hopetoun Hotel on only 5th January this year! The trio make dark, edgy, catchy, electro-pop.
Get set for a big night!
