This event has passed.
Songwriter, composer and multi- instrumentalist Amanda Brown of the legendary Go-Betweens enlists some of Australia’s most talented artists to help bring together a live performance of her debut solo record ‘Eight Guitars’, 20 years in the making. Unifying the songs through one instrument, and with each track featuring a different guest guitarist drawn from a pool of regular collaborators and friends, expect a venerable who’s who of music industry icons to take the stage.
Before turning to composition, Amanda Brown built a noteworthy career as a multi- instrumentalist in several bands, including The Go-Betweens with whom she recorded ‘Tallulah’ and ‘16 Lovers Lane’. Outside of her own projects, Brown has also recorded and performed with a wide range of artists including REM, Silverchair, The Church and David Bridie. In 2000, Amanda Brown began working as a composer, with her imaginative, emotional and heartfelt style affording her the ability to work across TV and movies, with credits that include the award-winning Babyteeth, Brazen Hussies and The Secrets She Keeps.
Special Guests for this performance are SnarskiCircusLindyBand.
A lot has happened since Lindy Morrison vowed never to see Rob Snarski perform again. Morrison approached the singer-songwriter post show, having attended a liquid lunch and feeling a tad vulnerable, she berated him for embracing sadness and lacking up-tempo, finger-snapping, melodic numbers. En garde!!
Not long after, the two began performing around the country in duo mode - before roping in ‘Evil’ Graham Lee [Triffids/pedal steel], Shane O’Mara [Rebecca’s Empire/Chris Wilson/Silversound] and more recently Dan Kelly [nephew of Paul] to form ‘supergroup’ …SnarskiCircusLindyBand
After touring briefly together, arguing incessantly along the way, they somehow agreed to record a batch of new songs Snarski had been conjuring with this band in mind.
