After an incredible night out with Parsnip and Ty Segall with his Freedom Band in January, there is a definite buzz around about The Sound Doctor. So we thought we’d strike while the iron’s hot and give you another awesome act to look forward to. Jen Cloher is returning to Anglesea on Friday 26 May with their latest album and tickets are on sale now!
Before we get there we still have a huge weekend in March to enjoy with Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band on Friday 24 March and Mia Wray on Saturday 25 March. Tickets are selling well so don’t delay in getting yours – you don’t want to be the one who misses out!
And don’t forget you can buy a Jeff Raglus designed Sound Doctor t-shirt when you buy your show ticket or anytime here. Well while stocks last anyway!
It’s hard to believe that it was five years ago that Jen Cloher (Ngāpuhi & Ngāti Kahu) got Sound Doctor audiences out of their chairs for the first time and cheering up a storm! We are so excited Jen is back with a new album to rock Anglesea once again on Friday 26 May.
Jen’s taut, terse brand of rock is charged with the static tension that comes with being an eternal misfit – they have spoken truth to power with the shrewd eye that only an outsider can possess. Admirers have naturally gravitated towards Jen’s incisive, generous songwriting and their first album in five years (the verdant and rich I Am The River, The River Is Me) is inspired by Jen’s powerful matrilineal line of wāhine Māori. It’s filled with fiercely political songs that are as much an energetic celebration as a form of resistance.
If you missed Jen the last time they were in Anglesea, you will not want to make that mistake again!
“A modern day Patti Smith whose brutally honest, politically charged lyrics mark her out as one of the most interesting and important artists of her day.” The Independent UK
