Make a double-date with two of the hottest tours this summer. In February and March 2006, relive the love, revive the romance and rediscover LES SAVY FAV and PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES, as they return to Australian shores. They were here last year, but both bands are back for more and this time they're seeing other people.
Les Savy Fav will be playing the musical field with fellow New Yorkers THE HOLD STEADY and Detroit darlings, THUNDERBIRDS ARE NOW!.
Powerhouse performers, Pretty Girls Make Graves is set up with perfect musical match, the dance-punk band that gets all the critics' tongues-wagging, THE GOSSIP.
Presented by Popfrenzy, these two-fold tours will be a brief and furious affair across Australia with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Each leg of the Two-Timing Tours will wind its way around some of rock's finer venues, culminating, as all illicit flirtations should, with a spectacle in an alleyway - St Jeromes Laneway Festival.
If you witnessed the majestic mayhem of Les Savy Fav and Pretty Girls Make Graves' shows last year, you'll know you're in good hands. Not just any hands. These are the hands of bands that make music that will hit you like a slap in the face. Hey, you're two-timing, what did you expect?
Put the deja in your rendezvous and do it times two with The Two-Timing Tours.
February 2006 the courtship continues.
