Ball Park Music Announce ‘Get The F**king Nerds Back On’ 2023 Australian Tour

Hot on the heels of being announced on the lineup for Groovin The Moo 2023, Ball Park Music have apparently held a press conference to no one, with the sole intention of calling themselves nerds and declaring a forthcoming string of national shows taking place in capital cities around the country.

The self-deprecating indie rock faves are saddling up for a headline run this May and June, bringing big poindexter energy to stages in Fremantle, Hobart, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne under the banner of the Get The Fucking Nerds Back On Tour. UPDATE: Most shows sold out and new shows added in Brisbane. Details below.

Ball Park Music – ‘Stars In My Eyes’

“Can’t wait for this one,” guitarist Sam Cromack said during the aforementioned press conference. “Our appetite to perform is huge. We’re looking forward to getting back in some smaller theatres. They feel like our natural home. We wanna be close to the audience, to feel like we’re together in the same room. Paul got a new synth too, so that should be good.”

Joining the nerds for all shows will be indie punk rockers The Buoys. There’ll be local openers for each show, including Ghost Care (Fremantle), Elizabeth M. Drummond (Hobart, Melbourne), Taj Ralph (Sydney) and Bean Magazine (Brisbane).

2022 saw Ball Park Music release their seventh studio album Weirder & Weirder, with lead single ‘Stars In My Eyes’ charting at number #8 in the triple j Hottest 100.

Meanwhile, Groovin The Moo will return head to six states and territories around Australia this April and May, stopping in Wayville (SA), Maitland (NSW), Mitchell (ACT), Bendigo (VIC), Warana (QLD) and Bunbury (WA).
