LIVE WIRE – Sydney Live Music Guide October 10th

Pete Cornelius

Pete Cornelius: The Vanguard will fall victim to the sweet bluesy sounds of Tasmanian tunes-man Pete Cornelius. Starting at the age of 13, Pete has released a plethora of quality material that made his touring schedule become an extensive itinerary. Now 29 years old, he will launch his nineth album, Groundswell, on this night that fuses together elements of R ‘n’ B, funk, soul, rock and alternative-country. This Tassie legend will steal the show and engulf his audience with quality sound.

Thu, Oct 10th, The Vanguard

Amorphis: Metal heads raise your horns! Finnish metal maniacs Amorphis are on our shores and ready to destroy. With over 20 years dedicated to the metal cause, these guys have won over plenty of fans across a vast array of genres with their 11-album strong catalogue. This visit to Australia will promote their latest collection Circle with the same raw energy and commitment that has seen them rise as the pinnacle of their genre. Expect to hear these new masterpieces, as well as some classics.

Fri, Oct 11th, Factory Theatre

The Village People: Young man, there is definitely no need to feel down. The iconic characters that make up the disco-kings Village People are performing for one night only. They’re here to promote the latest single Let’s Go Back To The Dance Floor, a song that came to fruition through a collaboration with KC and the Sunshine Band main man and close friend Harry W. Casey. However don’t be fooled into thinking that the classics will be ignored! YMCA, In The Navy and Macho Man are just a few that will get retro toes tapping.

Sat, Oct 12th, Enmore Theatre

The Handsome Family: Not many couples can boast a creative partnership that has longevity and success, but Chicago husband and wife Brett and Rennie Sparks sure have nailed it. Spanning over 20 years, these musically compatible individuals have created a sound that uses descriptive lyricism, psychedelic rock and country elements. Their most recent work Wilderness, which was released in May this year exhibits Rennie’s love of nature combined with true stories of death and everyday life. Their live show will be an insight into their creative storytelling mixed with wondrous melodies.

 Sun, Oct 13th, The Basement

Peña Flamenca: Think Spanish and Latin mixed with a little sprinkle of good ol’ Aussie culture. This is what’s in store at The Basement featuring Peña Flamenca. After emerging from a two-year residency at Sydney’s Spanish Club, the group are setting up to tour with their unique fiesta. The six members of this group combine a variety of musical backgrounds to give a brand new tang to the traditional flamenco act. They’ve got a busy schedule ahead of them this year, so don’t miss them fresh-faced and ready to dance. (CD)
