Eggy to Play Melbourne Send-Off Show Before Inaugural European Tour

Melbourne avant-pop crew Eggy released their excellent second album, With Gusto, via Flightless Records in July 2022. The band will kick off a comprehensive European tour in June, playing shows in Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and Switzerland. They’ve got one more hometown show before they go, headlining Melbourne’s Brunswick Ballroom on Friday, 26th May.

Eggy will be supported by Dainis Lacey’s Cool Sounds, whose latest album, Like That, was one of Music Feeds’ favourite local albums of 2022; Nic Oogjes of NO ZU will lead his latest project, Cong Josie & the Teardrops; and Palm Springs, aka Tropical Fuck Storm’s Erica Dunn, will be up first.

Eggy: With Gusto

Eggy is led by vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Zoe Monk, Sam Lyons, and Dominic Moore, alongside drummer Charlie Wolstenholme and synth player Lucy Packham. The band released its debut album, Bravo!, amid pandemic confusion in November 2020.

Their second album, With Gusto, was Triple R’s Album of the Week in August 2022 and the band followed its release with a run of shows around metro and regional Victoria. They’ve since played headline shows in Sydney and Brisbane, appeared at Goom Fest and Grinchfest, and performed on Triple R’s Live at Triple R program.

The band’s European tour kicks off on Friday, 9th June at A Forest Festival in Cigole, Italy. They’ll squeeze in a total of 19 shows in a three-week span, wrapping up at Italy’s Off Tune Festival on 1st July alongside the likes of Kurt Vile and Fujiya & Miyagi.
