CONTEST – Empire Of The Sun @ The Sound Academy – September 13, 2011
Aaron Hayward & David HomerWho: Empire Of The Sun
What: Cosmic-scaled electro-pop from the Australian minds of Luke Steele (The Sleepy Jackson) and prodigal Pnau partner Nick Littlemore.
Why: They’re taking advantage of appearances on the North American Summer festival circuit to craft a proper tour and make up a number of cancelled shows from last year before heading back into the studio to record the follow-up to 2009′s Walking On A Dream.
When: Tuesday, September 13, 2011
Where: Sadly, the post title is not a typo – just yesterday, it was announced that the due to “unforeseen production issues”, the show was being moved from it’s original open-air waterfront venue to the much-reviled waterfront shoebox The Sound Academy.
Who else: Miami Horror – who are neither from Miami or horrible (they’re also Aussies) are opening up.
How: Tickets for the show are $39.50 in advance but courtesy of Embrace, I have two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to join the Empire Of The Sun” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, September 6.
