Fresh from living the range life at the Melbourne Zoo, we are stoked to announce an intimate Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks show in Melbourne this week! Yep, that’s right, going to have to move quick for this show at The Gasometer on Thursday March 6 before Stephen and band jettison off to the Supernatural Amphitheatre at Golden Plains. The legendary DAN KELLY DREAM BAND will join his idol as the support.
As always, the work of Malkmus is consistently and casually brilliant and the most recent album WIG OUT AT JAGBAGS is no exception – playful, intelligent indie rock/pop music with a lyrical sophistication and depth that is unmatched in modern music. For an artist to be so effortlessly cool and so reliably excellent across such an extensive body of work is a treat to behold and utterly refreshing in a world where viral things wrongly get all the attention. In the world of Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks quality and music actually prevail which is great for all of us.
“He’s the longest-running rock artist who’s never made a weak record.” – Rolling Stone.
