Deerhunter – Tuesday – The Hi-Fi
Atlanta conceived indie-rock outfit Deerhunter are returning to Australian shores this December, playing a bunch of gigs along the east coast in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. If you haven’t heard of these guys before, they describe their sound as ‘ambient punk’, although that doesn’t really do justice to their unique vibe both with regards to their performances and music. They will be lighting up the Hi-Fi this Tuesday and playing all the hits of their extremely successful album Monomania, released earlier this year. You can still grab tickets from http://tickets.thehifi.com.au
Jack Johnson – Tuesday AND Wednesday – Sydney Opera House
