After the cancellation of Death Grip’s début show at MONA FOMA Festival in Tasmania, Festival Director and ex-Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie will be forming a supergroup with Amanda Palmer; Brian Viglione of The Dresden Dolls; former Bad Seed, Mick Harvey; and PJ Harvey collaborator and guitarist, John Parish.
In what looks like being a one-off, this supergroup will be performing the Violent Femmes self-titled début classic album. They have said that they will be bringing their own unique spin on the album.
The performance is included in the Festival Pass ($50) or Day Pass ($25). Buy tickets at the PW1 Box Office or online at www.mofo.net.au.
