FRIDAY 13 MARCH
PLANET OF THE 8s
Ft. DROID, SPAWN, Sarah Eida Trio
One of the best examples of sand blasted desert rock to come out of the southern hemisphere this year”… Planet of the 8s are hitting the road with their visceral live show covering 4200km from Adelaide to Townsville and almost everywhere in between, promoting their latest full-length release, Tourist Season.
This show at the Evelyn will likely be the band’s only hometown headline show in 2020 before they begin work on their next album. Featuring a light show by Axl Entertainment and a guest appearance by Diesel Doleman from local desert rockers Duneeater. He’ll join POT8s on stage performing a-yet-to-be-released collaboration on one of the Tourist Season outtakes.
And what a line up…
DROID have been blowing the restraining bolts off doomers around the country and overseas with their debut full length release ‘Hyperreality’. “Their fuzzed out doom sound is thrilling… as psychedelic as it is tortured… more than just another doom band…” – Metal Injection.
SPAWN will emerge from the fuzz egg for the second slot of the night, dropping their trademark dirge of grungy psych and doom featuring entrancing and oft brutal vocals reminiscent of Babes in Toyland.
Sarah EiDA will open the night with nothing short of pure, unbridled ferocity. Backed by a thunderous rhythm section, the sound is classic power trio with one of the most powerful rock vocal performances you’ll see on a pub stage in Melbourne.
Planet of the 8s “Intergalactic Guru Tour’ blows in to town with the bands only hometown headline show for 2020 at The Evelyn on 13 March 2020 with support from DROID, SPAWN and The Sarah Eida Trio. Pre-sale tix available now
