Harvest Festival Sideshows – The Dandy Warhols With Silversun Pickups

Written by Mike Hohnen on September 20, 2012

Well, many of you are going to be very happy to wake up to this news. Harvest have today announced a co-headlining sideshow with The Dandy Warhols and Silversun Pickups.

While sticking true to his promises of arranging sideshows in non-Harvest cities, it’s looking as though, for the time being, only Adelaide and Perth will be graced by the co-headliner. Brissy has already been canned as a potential for Silversun Pickups as per AJ’s Twitter account. It’s not looking too great for Sydney either, though there is always hope something with the individual bands can be arranged.

The Warhols are no strangers to Australian stages, having gigged here fairly regularly since 2007, though this time they’ll be bringing with them their latest album This Machine. which dropped back in May (for those of you playing at home).

Silversun Pickups were in town only 2 years ago. Back in 2010, the band supported our very own Birds of Tokyo but stopped off in Melbourne for a single headlining show. This time round the band will be determined to make the most of their time here. They will be bringing with them The Happy Hollows bassist Sarah Negahdar to fill on bass duties while permanent fixture Nikki Monninger awaits news on her coming child. They too will be bearing gifts of a new album with Neck of the Woods dropping back in May.

FL were on the ball this morning with the announcement, confirming two dates in November. They will be joining Beirut, The War on Drugs, Ben Folds Five, Cake, Grizzly Bear and Sigur Ros, all of whom will be sideshowing while in town.
