The Great Emu War Casualties announce month-long residency at Melbourne’s Evelyn Hotel

Indie electro-pop rockers The Great Emu War Casualties have just announced an upcoming residency at the Evelyn in Melbourne.

Their name comes from a government effort in 1932 to reduce the emu population in Western Australia, brought about by the birds causing damage to crops and property. In case you were wondering, the humans lost.

The Great Emu War Casualties are bringing their richly instrumental, danceable electro-pop rock to the Evelyn in Melbourne – check them out because they will definitely be your new favourite band.

The band will be playing every Tuesday, starting from November 6. Check out the full run of dates below.

The Great Emu War Casualties also have a new EP available from November 16. We’ve had a cheeky preview and if any band deserves an award for the most creative song names, it is hands down these guys.

I’m Leaving Now Where Do I Live starts off with the extremely danceable Gimme Gimme Shimmy Shimmy, followed by the more chilled-out Sad Seewead People and The Adventures of Sheep Dude and Food Goose, before closing off with the sunny, upbeat number Just Whatever.

They’re also headlining a record label launch on November 1 at the Worker’s Club if you want to see them a little earlier. Check the event out here.
