The Smith Street Band are soon heading off right around Australia on their first headline tour in nearly a year.
They’re not just taking in the usual haunts, either, making sure to drop by every state and territory, complete with a handful of all ages and under 18s shows. Respect!
It’s their first tour since their More Scared of You Than You are of Me album dropped, and follows on from a string of dates in the USA and Europe.
They’re kicking off the March through May tour in style too, with the gargantuan Pool House Party at Coburg’s Velodrome in Melbourne, which will feature two stages and 18 of their favourite bands. They then head to Newcastle and onwards all around the country, toting Bec Sandridge and Press Club as special guests.
Tickets are on sale now for Pool House Party, with the rest of the tour going on sale at 12pm on Tuesday, January 16 at the band’s website.
