The Beautiful Girls at Narrabeen RSL

Thursday, November 30 at 8 PM - 11:30 PM
Narrabeen RSL
116 Nareen Pde, Narrabeen

Tickets on sale 9:00am Sept 8th via Oztix and the Venue 

‘Raw, spooky, rootsy, punky, reggae, dubby’ – these are some of the ways the music of The Beautiful Girls has been described. And in 2017 & 2018, they’re taking it all the way back to the sonic beginnings to celebrate anniversaries of their two seminal releases Morning Sun and Learn Yourself.

Periscopes, Music, Blackbird and LaMar, amazing performances all over the planet, the voice of Mat McHugh, heart-on-the-sleeve songs, pioneering Australia’s surf-roots-reggae sounds; these are things fans worldwide think of when they think of The Beautiful Girls.

Now Mat has decided to strip back the performances to their original essence – the striking three-piece sound which first brought the band to attention fifteen years ago.

First stop on the Morning Sun / Learn Yourself Tour will be Europe where the band built a base early in its career. Now, after over 5 years absence, the trio returns to play venues in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and spend four weeks reconnecting with fans.

Then it is back home to Australia and on the road over Spring and Summer to bring back the songs and sounds that make them so loved fifteen years an go and ever since.

Hosted by Kingdom Sounds

Thirsty Merc at Narrabeen RSL 
With special guests TBA 
Saturday December 2nd 2017 
Tickets on sale now via Oztix and the venue 
18+ 

15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their Summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years and to celebrate this milestone, the band are heading back out on the road on their Take Me Back Tour kicking off in Brisbane on 2 November.

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September, 2003, before being signed to Warner Music. The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Two more studio albums followed - Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista

Fast forward to 2015 - Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.

Besides the hits, the Take Me Back Tour is a celebration of all the music along the way and fans can expect to hear songs they’ve never heard the band perform live before.
Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said today: “It’s thanks to the fans that we’re still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big “thank you” to everyone who’s sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs we’ve never included in our shows”.
