Shows: Lowtide @ Public Bar

In their first show for 2014, self described moongaze quartet Lowtide take to the Public Bar in North Melbourne tonight (10th Jan 2014) to perform brand spanking new material that will melt your brain and make you rub your earballs in disbelief. Is that a thing? Earballs?


With their debut LP all but finalised, expect the unexpected as their saccharine sweet noise pop pitch bends and feedbacks it’s way into your hazy conscious. If you’re the kind of guy or gal to rock up early to catch the supports like we know you are, you’re also in for a treat with Premium Fantasy‘s brand of ambient slowcore (Premium Fantasy: The fantasy 9 out of 10 liberal arts students and cat owners prefer) as well as the beautifully layered powerdream post-punk of Contrast – Melbourne’s answer to Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

The price is an absolute bargain at $10, making it a reasonable destination for that second date or a bit of after dinner entertainment as you drink your way to the start of the weekend. Contrast will be kicking things off at 9pm, followed by Premium Fantasy at 10pm with Lowtide bringing your Friday to a close at the eleventh hour in the post meridian.
