Amongst all the awesomeness of the full Vivid Festival 2013 line-up announcement this morning, the sideshows have started to pump out as well – Matthew E. White has announced a special sideshow in Melbourne in June.
If you’re in Melbourne and were bummed that none of the awesome action underneath the multicoloured designs beamed onto the Opera House was coming your way, it’s time to turn that frown upside down! White will be playing the Northcote Social Club in June, touring off the back of his debut album Big Inner.
Big Inner has received critical acclaim and been named album of the week in The Guardian and The Observer, and labelled as “one of the great albums of modern Americana” by Uncut. The album has been described as “an album of firsts” for the singer and “a meticulously crafted blend of reggae-infused folk-gospel, swirling indie pop and R&B.”
The tour will be White’s first visit to Australia. Tickets are on sale now.
