Lupe Fiasco

^^

When: Saturday 13th January
Where: Enmore Theatre

Rapper, producer, songwriter and one of the most socially conscious superstars of the 21st century, Lupe Fiasco will be bring his subversive hip hop movement to Australian and New Zealand stages in January 2018! Among one of the most reflective and enigmatic rappers of today, Lupe Fiasco reinvigorated hip hop with the release of his highly anticipated debut album, 2006’s ‘Food & Liquor’. The album peaked at No 1 on the Billboard Top 10 and received three nominations for the Grammy Awards including Best Rap Album. After seizing the spotlight Lupe’s reign continued with the release of his break-out 2007 hit- single ‘Superstar”, whilst his position as a pioneer of social awareness was solidified. Since his seismic debut Lupe Fiasco’s music has become renowned for provoking thought on social issues such as poverty, absent parents and war and has won several gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications among a slew of hit singles which include "The Show Goes On," "Battle Scars," with Australia’s own Guy Sebastian and "Old School Love," which features Ed Sheeran. ‘Drogas Light’, released earlier this year, is where Lupe’s sonics and storytelling propensities exemplify a high point for artistic growth. Instilled with all the lyrical genius, artistic vision and trap rap tropes for which he is known, his sixth studio album is a potent addition to his intellectual discography. “But here, with a newfound urgency to his sound, he proves once again that he is still the brainy smurf of rap.” - Pitchfork. “Drogas Light actually serves as a brisk, masterful concept album...Fiasco launches a conscious counter-attack that's cynical and satirical but also generous and accepting.” - Rolling Stone. Don’t miss one of the most cerebral rappers in the game Lupe Fiasco as he tours Australia and New Zealand this January!

Mallrat

^^

When: Saturday 20th January
Where: Metro Theatre

Fresh from debuting her new single ‘Better,’ being #1 at Alternative radio in Australia, selling out her 18+ Better tour in a matter of days, and playing Live At The Steps for thousands of triple j fans, the queen of nonchalant cool, Mallrat, is hitting the road to bring her sparkling new jam ‘Better’ to life for all ages crowds. With deliciously sweet hooks and a characteristically anthemic chorus, ‘Better’ is sure to invoke some loud sing-alongs at Mallrat shows this summer. ‘Better’ premiered on triple j’s Good Nights with Linda in Australia and internationally on Stereogum, reinforcing the global appeal of the artist touted early as the “Hannah Montana of the rap game” and who has since gone on to rack up over 13 million streams on Spotify alone since releasing her debut Uninvited EP in 2016. With a huge following of fans from Melbourne to Mexico City, Mallrat’s refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life, her relatably confessional lyrics, and her penchant for writing sticky melodies that you just can’t shake, have all shaped her into the kind of artist that’s perfectly positioned to be Australia’s next big name in pop music. The shower of acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, as well as NME, Beats 1, Noisey, Pigeons and Planes, Perez Hilton, Rolling Stone, and Pilerats just to name a few, reinforces that even further. Meanwhile, at home in Australia she’s forging a reputation as one of the most endearing live performers in the country, thanks to spots on festivals like Splendour In The Grass and Listen Out, and support slots with the likes of Allday, Peking Duk, and Maggie Rogers. She’s set to make more great live appearances this summer with the announcement of new All Ages shows being added to the ‘Better’ Tour with support from Arno Faraji. “Her electro pop influence is reminiscent of her musical and geographical neighbor Lorde’s Pure Heroine, with liberal use of synthesizers and vocal harmonies building up to bright choruses.” - Stereogum. “Mallrat has a sleepy delivery and a knack for singsong melodies that grow hypnotically familiar.” - The New York Times. “Australian talent Mallrat is a truly special prospect." - NME.

With This Old Dog, his third album and first full-length since 2014’s celebrated release Salad Days, Mac has produced an album that Clash called “Intimate and endearingly honest… Mac DeMarco’s most essential chapter of slacker gospel yet” in their 9/10 review. It’s a reflective, hazy synth-based collection of down-tempo cuts showcasing singles ‘One More Love Song’, ‘On The Level’ and ‘This Old Dog’, which were all featured as Pitchfork’s Best New Track. With the provocative Kirin J Callinan confirmed as a Special Guest, an evening of world-class entertainment will ensue when Mac lands in Sydney and Melbourne in 2018. “The madness of Mac compels you” - The Guardian. “He ended the show in typical Mac fashion, crowd surfing through the tiny venue until the audience ferried him to the bar, where he ordered a beer and crowd surfed back to the stage.” - The Line Of Best Fit. “Mac DeMarco is funny as hell and was born for the spotlight” - Consequence of Sound

NOFX

^^

When: Friday 23rd March
Where: Hordern Pavilion

Support: Hot Water Music
Bad Cop/Bad Cop
Dad Religion

Punk rock fans rejoice! NOFX have confirmed two headline shows ahead of their appearance at the inaugural Download Festival! Joining forces with Hot Water Music, Bad Cop/Bad Cop and Australian supergroup, Dad Religion (members of Frenzal Rhomb, Bodyjar & Clowns), this is one show you don’t want to miss! What’s left to say about NOFX? The reigning kings of punk rock have been wreaking havoc in the scene since they exploded onto it over 30 years ago. Gold records, sell out shows, their own realty TV show…they’ve even penned a New York Times Bestselling memoir, NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories. Continuing to push the boundaries of their music, lyrics and good taste in a way that’s as endearing as it is infectious. For that reason it's remarkably apt that the band's latest LP First-Ditch Effort is also their thirteenth because ominous black clouds hang over this collection of songs that see frontman/bassist Fat Mike exploring self-loathing and mortality in a more raw and honest way than he ever has before.
