REPRESSED RECORDS PRES. ROYAL HEADACHE / BLANK REALM / EXHAUSTION & KRIS WANDERS / SUPERSTAR / SNAKE & FRIENDS / MONICA BROOKS
Performance begins: 7:30pm
Venue: Joan Sutherland Theatre
For their first hometown performance in nearly two years, shambolically stately local garage legends Royal Headache lead a punk-riddled takeover of the Joan Sutherland Theatre, joined by Repressed favourites including Brisbane's Blank Realm Melbourne psych pummelers EXHAUSTION with free jazz veteran Kris Wanders, dream pop duo Superstar Al Montfort (Total Control, Dick Diver) as Snake with very special guests, and solo pianist Monica Brooks.
Led by Shogun's soul-piercing voice, Repressed Records' top selling band have become a rare live entity since veering through arena-sized success supporting The Black Keys and unanimous acclaim for their self-titled 2011 debut.
Retreating to record their long-awaited second record with few appearances since, Royal Headache now re-emerge for a night of noise and melody – celebrating the Newtown via Penrith outpost that has championed the Australian underground whilst dodging High Fidelity-style counter cliché.
