Every day we see new ’20th Anniversary Tours’ of a variety of bands. 20 years as a band tends to come with the title of ‘old’. Hence we see Regurgitator beat the stereotypes as the Australian punk legends tour their first two releases on the back of their 19th anniversary as a band. Stellar albums Tu-Plang and Unit are on the menu this time round, as the band promise to play both releases in full at every concert they play across Australia.
Those who hit up the Falls Music and Arts Festival last year had the privilege of seeing Unit performed in full, and from all reviews it was a treat. My memories of Falls are fondly tinged by the memories of hearing some of my favorite Australian songs performed to a crowd of like minded people and you can bet anything that you’ll see me at the Hi-Fi Bar in Melbourne moshing to some of the best Australian releases of all time.
Tickets are starting at about $35 for one of Australia’s best bands, they’re being supported by Indonesian two piece band Senyawa. This band combine traditional Javanese musical practices with experimental contemporary stylings to create a unique musical experience.
