Sheffield post-rock outfit 65daysofstatic ran into a complication last night in Brisbane on their Australian headline tour that forced them to cancel the show.
The band was due to play at The Hi-Fi in Brisbane last night, however, it was cancelled after a set from West-Australian support act Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving, when sprinklers flooded the stage. Despite having a tight touring schedule the band have found a way to play tonight instead at the Woolly Mammoth.
“BRISBANE. You might have noticed our show was cancelled last night because sprinklers flooded the stage. WE HAVE FOUND A WAY TO PLAY A SHOW TONIGHT INSTEAD,” the band posted on their Facebook page.
They then updated that with, “We are playing at the Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane, tonight. Doors 8.30pm. We play 9pm. Original tickets remain valid. Please share this round!”
The support act Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving managed to play before the sprinkler system came on at The HiFi. They won’t be joining 65DaysofStatic tonight.
Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving took to their Facebook page to describe the events writing, “Well that was fucked – right after we got off stage in Brisbane the fire alarm sounded and the HiFi was evacuated. Then the sprinkler system came on and flooded the venue.”
All three Hi-Fi venues, one each in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, were recently placed in administration following a reported dispute between the company and and a major creditor. The future of the venue is at this stage uncertain.
65daysofstatic will no doubt be hoping for a dry stage as they make another attempt to play Brisbane tonight in support of their 2013 record Wild Light. Original tickets remain valid.
The only other dates left to play on their Australian tour are a headline show in Perth and Adelaide Festival which is headed up by Mogwai.
