Laneway 2017 sideshows announced

We're thrilled to announce a heap of great Laneway 2017 sideshows happening in Melbourne and Sydney. Tickets on sale this Friday.

CAR SEAT HEADREST

BROUGHT TO YOU BY LANEWAY PRESENTS & PENNY DROP
Presented by FBi and RRR

Tickets to the general public on sale Friday 28 October, 10am AEDT

Will Toledo of CAR SEAT HEADREST is coming to Australia for the very first time for the Laneway tour.

Before signing to Matador Records in 2014, the 23 year old artist had already crafted an 11 album catalogue of staggering depth, all self-released on Bandcamp. His formal studio debut, 2016’s Teens of Denial, has everything you want from a rock album within one song. Check out album opener ‘Fill In the Blank’. With inspired guitar riffs, ambitious indie-rock anthems, and clever reflections of 20-something life, Teens of Denial is one of the best albums of the year. Live, Car Seat Headrest performs with a full band.

In Sydney, Car Seat Headrest will be supported by low-fi indie pop act Jarrow, who recently shared his outstanding debut LP 2003 Dream. In Melbourne support comes from Terrible Truths; a band hailing from the stifling depths of rural South Australia. They make pure and unabashed, DIY punk.

  • Wednesday 25 January - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (18+) - TICKETS
  • Friday 27 January - The Curtin, Melbourne (18+) - TICKETS

Get the party started with their epic lead single, ‘O B 1’.

TYCHO

BROUGHT TO YOU BY LANEWAY PRESENTS & PENNY DROP
Presented by FBi

Tickets to the general public on sale Friday 28 October, 10am AEDT 

TYCHO’s brilliant new album Epoch dropped last month and it was the moment fans had been waiting for. Speeding to #1 of the Billboard Dance/Electronic charts, the LP is a satisfying evolution of the San Francisco based artist’s take on spacey electronica, brimming with gorgeous melodies and inventive sounds.

Laneway Presents and Penny Drop can announce that fans will be able to able to hear Tycho’s new music at headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Tycho’s meticulously crafted electronic music is equally suited to headphones, a blissed-out festival setting and the dancefloor.

Performed live by Scott Hansen and his three band members, this show will be an audio/visual stand out of the summer.

  • Wednesday 25 January - 170 Russell, Melbourne (18+)TICKETS
  • Thursday 2 February - Metro Theatre, Sydney (18+)TICKETS

WHITNEY

BROUGHT TO YOU BY LANEWAY PRESENTS & PENNY DROP
Presented by FBi and RRR

Tickets to the general public on sale Friday 28 October, 10am AEDT

With the release of their incredibly assured debut Light Upon The Lake, WHITNEY established themselves as a band you shouldn’t be sleeping on. They made an indelible impression at this year’s SXSW, and have since been named Best New Music by Pitchfork. Lead single ‘No Woman’ is a beautiful folk-inspired number, where vocalist and drummer Julien Ehrlich’s candid falsetto floats over Whitney’s big band sound.

Whitney is built around the discerning songwriting talent of Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek, who started off as members of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Smith Westerns, and expand to an epic 6-piece when they play live. They make Classic Americana for a modern world - twangy guitars, soothing percussion and anthemic horns, underscored by youthful and sincere lyrics.

Light Upon The Lake is one of Elton John’s favourite albums of 2016, read his interview with Whitney here.

Joining Whitney for both shows is Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, whose rich poppy guitar melodies and propulsive rhythm have already earned them praise with international scope.

  • Friday 27 January - Howler, Melbourne (18+)TICKETS
  • Thursday 2 February - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (18+)TICKETS
