Twerps announce Melbourne & Sydney shows


Loveable pop janglers Twerps play their first Australian shows after a massive eight week US tour, which included a run of SXSW dates then a trek across the American nation supporting classy chillers and BFFs Real Estate. On the way, they recorded sessions for The Fader and Newtown Radio, and even jammed out a live cover of the Clean’s Anything Could Happen with Real Estate in Columbus, Ohio. At SXSW they were big-upped everywhere from Billboard, the Austin Chronicle and NME to the Irish Times. You can check out a picture gallery of Twerps’ US adventures on Mess+Noise.

Since getting home, Twerps have been bunkered down in the studio, so they’re getting pretty itchy to play some of their new songs live. In Melbourne, just one night at the Tote Hotel didn’t seem like enough, so the band have put together a weekend extravaganza taking in Friday Saturday, August 3-4. For the Friday, they’ve invited buddies Peak Twins and Full Ugly to support, while Bushwalking and the Stevens join them on the Saturday.

In Sydney, Twerps are playing at Goodgod Small Club with special guests to be announced. Tickets for both cities go on sale on Friday morning!

In other news, Twerps are also playing a live to air for RRR’s Winter Warmers series next Wednesday, July 4 at 6.30pm, during Anita Alphabet’s excellent new show Test Pattern.
