The Corner has some seriously top acts coming up in the next couple of months. I got pretty excited about Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (Saturday 27 March, tickets on sale Feb 5) but it wasn’t until I scrolled down a little further that I really got going!
The Mountain Goats are all booked to do a show Wednesday 14th April and there’s no way I’m going to miss them like I did last time. Tickets are on sale Friday 12 February and I’m predicting they’ll go fast, so no faffing about!
Given their HUGE back catalogue there’s no telling what songs will be played on the night, but I’m holding out for this one.
Mountain Goats NZ/Australia Tour Dates:
8/4 The King’s Arms Tavern, Auckland, New Zealand
9/4 The San Francisco Bath House, Wellington, NZ
11/4 The Zoo, Brisbane, QLD, Australia
13/4 Manning Bar, Sydney, NSW, Australia
14/4 The Corner Hotel, Melbourne, VIC, Australia
16/4 Fowler’s Live, Adelaide, SA, Australia
18/4 The Rosemount, Perth, WA, Australia
I’ll leave you with this note from their website:
February 2, 2010 I Will See Some Footie Or Know the Reason Why
Yes indeed: we are coming back to Australia! We are psyched. Psyched because we love Australia; psyched because we love playing music there; and psyched because we get there during week three of the AFL Premiership season. We will see you at the shows! And then we’ll see you at the stadium! And then we’ll see you at some more shows. Can’t wait!
This is cute, but funny also because it’s ‘footy’ here, not ‘footie’. Pedantic I know, but it gave me a giggle!
