Maitland and Newcastle area music fans who prefer their entertainment on the more theatrical side - and particularly those that like to dress up and party - are in for a treat Friday 13th February, as The Grand Junction Hotel, Maitland, takes a ‚ÄòGlam Friday The 13th‚Äô theme, with a live show by award-winning, upcoming Sydney dance-rock band Super Massive, whose style draws from disco, electro, glam rock, pop and funk. It starts at 8:30pm and entry is free.
Super Massive is all about lovingly crafted, creative, sexy, sci-funk alterna-pop, delivered with the lustiness of a full rock band.
The shared musical vision of singer/songwriter Malina Hamilton-Smith and drummer/composer Glenn Abbott (best known for his work with Machine Gun Fellatio), Super Massive was awarded ‚ÄòBest Alternative Artist‚Äù at last year‚Äôs MusicOz Awards, and released a debut EP to rave reviews mid last year.
They have been playing shows in Sydney and Newcastle and touring the east coast for the past two and a half years, however this will be their first show for Maitland audiences.
Described by reviewers as ‚Äúa man-eater‚Äù, ‚Äúa cross between Peaches and Kylie‚Äù and compared to Karen O, Blondie, and Siouxsie Sioux, Hamilton-Smith is a cheeky lyricist, extroverted performer and high priestess of a fun show.
Joined onstage by guitarist Marc Malouf and bassist Dan Bruce, the band‚Äôs sound is influenced by a diverse range of artists & styles from Basement Jaxx to Led Zeppelin via Chic, Garbage, AIR and Daft Punk, with enough traces of Marilyn Manson, Siouxsie Sioux, Alice Cooper and Black Sabbath in the musical mix to make them the perfect band for a glam Friday The 13th party night.
Says Hamilton-Smith, ‚ÄòWell, we thought if everything‚Äôs going to be doom and gloom as this year begins, we‚Äôll have fun with doom and gloom! We‚Äôre not superstitious. We dress fairly glam already, but the theme has given us lots of new ideas and we‚Äôre going to take things even further for this show. To anyone who wants to join in on dressing up; think anything from gothic horror to glam rock. Think shiny, spangly, or satiny. Think glittery fake blood. Think fake axe through the head! Have some fun. It‚Äôs about setting yourself free to have a good time.‚Äô
And what to expect from the show music wise? ‚ÄòThe music will be very funky and danceable, with lots of glam rock toms and guitar. We‚Äôre doing two sets, and it‚Äôll range from rock to dance, building up to some pretty slamming hard disco/ clubbier vibe stuff at the end. It‚Äôll be lots of fun.‚Äô
Super Massive‚Äôs self-titled EP is out now through MGM and iTunes and will also be available for purchase at the show on CD for a modest $8-.
