Pete Lyrebird (EP Launch)
Scurvy and the Dogs
Doors 7:00pm / $15 (or $12 Concession) Door
Described as “gifted with a rich, sonorous voice, and the songs are haunting and melancholy’ by UK publication Edinburgh Spot- light, Pete Lyrebird is excited to be launching his debut EP Pair Of Rogues at The Workers Club on Sunday 18th February. Having held his cards close to his chest for some time, this news will come as welcome relief to loyal fans of his songs.
Creating music that can be broadly described as a rich brew of atmosphere drenched experimental folk, Pete Lyrebird is the new musical incarnation for singer-songwriter and actor-maker Pete Reid, who formerly fronted rum soaked Melbourne dirge specialists Pete and the Tar Gang. He’s joined by special guests from the EP, alongside his regular entourage of musicians, plus several backup singers.
Supporting Pete Lyrebird at the launch will be Scurvy And The Dogs, the grunge folk storytelling/dirty punk poetry brainchild of singer-songwriter and artist Cat Scobie. Also supporting will be Steph Brett, the sultry voiced lead vocalist from disco-soul band Sugar Fed Leopards.
This will be a gig that goes beyond being a straightforward concert to include visual, atmospheric and performative elements, de- signed to take audiences on a journey through song and sound.
