Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird

Hotel Great Northern  |  Friday

After a groundbreaking year for Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, the ‘bird is gearing up for an even bigger 2020, beginning with a summer tour’, they say.

2019 saw the release of the Melburnian quintet’s standout singles Joy, Hot Pink and Best Face to London, as well as their acclaimed sophomore album New Romancer. They toured the UK and Ireland, playing sold out shows in London, as well as performing at The Great Escape Festival (Brighton, UK), and around Australia – twice.

Riding high in the US NACC college radio charts, the Melbourne exponents of Indie art-pop are currently on their summer tour, sharing the love, and farewelling New Romancer, before they head to Austin, Texas – where they have been invited to play at the music world’s premiere global showcase, SXSW!

They’re revving it up this week at the Northern.

Shady Nasty are a Sydney-based trio which formed in 2015. Their art is a dynamic experiment, drawing from alternative forms of punk and hip-hop. Coupled with a raucous live show, Shady Nasty offer compelling vignettes of their young adulthood unfolding in the diversity of Sydney: modding cars, Chinese heritage, making ends meet, menace and love.

You can see them this week in Byron at the Hotel Great Northern, Saturday.

Katie Noonan

Brunswick Picture House  |  Saturday  |  7pm

With five ARIAs in her stash, singer songwriter Katie Noonan has announced her upcoming mini-album release Late Night Tunes with Noons, sharing her interpretation of iconic Australian songs, as well as featuring a new original song I Found You. The idea started when Katie posted a short video on Instagram of her learning a Hunters and Collectors classic for an upcoming event. After garnering such a strong response from fans, Katie created a late-night video series where she interprets some of her favourite Aussie songs, from across multiple decades, in her intimate and dynamic style. The eight-track mini-album really showcases Katie’s magical interpretation of classic’s new and old; taking on Tones and I, Emma Louise, Jarryd James, Jordan Rakei, Hunters & Collectors, Cold Chisel and Powderfinger. Katie’s sublime voice transports each of these covers to a new place, captured by Muso TV – Katie also recorded a live video-series to share each performance in its most intimate state.

In support of the new release Katie will be taking her intimate solo show around the country

Don’t miss the seven-time platinum songstress as she takes this uniquely Australian intimate performance around the country – proving why she’s consistently voted one of the country’s best voices.
