International Velvet + Slimbillgates + Jazz

Monday June 5th sees International Velvet team up with Slimbillgates and Jazz for a show. Fronted by the vocal pairing of James McLean & Rosie Mackay (the later sitting somewhere politely between Debbie Harry and the soft gloom of Nico), an upbeat yet melancholic International Velvet describe themselves as the musical answer to the font family of Helvetica – dark, strong and easy on the eye. They share a love of eighties underground bands from the UK and Australia, the politically charged themes and romance that sung true through the sounds of the pop groups of that era. Next month they are recording their first EP with Evelyn Ida Morris (Pikelet) and planning tour dates for the eastern cities. Slimbillgates gives you the internet via synesthesia. Jazz is a band that has formally frequented Jazz clubs in Dunedin, New Zealand (and features members from RVG, Gregor, Love of Diagrams and WASP). $5 Entry!
