Anton Newcombe and his band of savage, neo-psychedelic dronemen – collectively, The Brian Jonestown Massacre – have announced a list of tour dates to coincide with their appearance at this year’s Vivid festival in Sydney.
We really can’t put the enduring appeal of the legendary band any more succinctly than Vivid’s Stephen Ferris, who said in a press release: “The Brian Jonestown Massacre are a wildly original and thrilling live band, who have built a career out of prioritising art over commercial compromise.”
In addition to the usual major city haunts, the group will also be performing in a couple of rural spots. Here are the dates; we recommend getting in as soon as your bank balance allows.
