Sunday 19th November (matinee)
James Hazelden & The Gentlemen Callers (Album Launch)
Man Bites God
Doors 1:00pm / $20+bf Thru Oztix (HERE)
James Hazelden returns to release his third solo album, Crying is the Worst Medicine with a rare live show in his hometown of Melbourne. James will be joined by a full band as he plays songs from the new album, as well as a bunch of stuff from his prodigious back catalogue.
Hazelden will be supported by singer/songwriter/producer Nicholas Roy (The Voice) and satirical acoustic punk band, Man Bites God.
Crying is the Worst Medicine sees Hazelden add full drums, electric bass and crunchy electric guitar to his trademark whimsical melancholy and often surreal lyrics. He has jettisoned the acoustic folk and alt-country of his previous releases, and these new upbeat songs have dense, tight arrangements, often incorporating a soundscape quality into the mix, with vocal harmonies lurking deep within the tunes. This is pop/rock tinged with a cinematic ambience.
Every ticket buyer will get a free CD copy of Crying is the Worst Medicine.
