AAA Backstage- one of the country's leading for music news and reviews- is celebrating its seventeenth(!) birthday. They've decided to give back to the community that grew them- the people of Brisbane by throwing one hell of a birthday bash!
Taking over Brisbane's The Flying Cock on Friday April 27, AAA Backstage has booked some of the biggest and best leaders in the Australian music scene right now. Headlining the night, taking you into the early, dreary hours of the morning, is none other than techno's champion, K.I.M! Spending more than a decade shredding dance floors and festival grounds with The Presets, K.I.M often falls back under his solo alias for DJ sets of a higher echelon.
Next up one of the best discoveries by AAA from 2017, Nocturnal Tapes! Easily one of the best live acts going around at the moment, this indietronica duo are a huge force to be reckoned with. Mashing stadium-worthy riffs and bass-heavy beats to make anyone around on their feet, Nocturnal Tapes are an incredible new act- mach thanks to their incredible recent EP, 'Visions IV'.
Further down the poster, WHARVES! Having played Splendour in the Grass' Amphitheatre Stage, the band are on a sheer incline in national popularity- also in part to their most recent banger, 'Love Decide'. Moving on, acclaimed Gold Coast-based indie rock bands Eliza & The Delusionals are one of the most exciting groups breaking out at the moment. Led by colourful front woman, Eliza Klatt, the group have gone on to support Grinspoon, Killing Heidi and Nothing But Thieves.
Rounding out the lineup is the forbidding, new electronic act, Machine Club. His debut single, 'Wise Up', is a culmination of shifting electronic movements and primal velocities. DiskoDisco will also be joining the linenup-showcasing their synthwave delicacies and teaching a thing or two about the lore of TRON. Finally, your hosts for the night GD FRNDS DJs. will be appearing in stunning 4K resolution attempting to be streaming live on Boiler Room.
The AAA Backstage Bash descends upon The Flying Cock on Friday April 27. First in best dressed- this will sell out.
K.I.M is the artist name of Kim Moyes- multiple ARIA award winning producer, musician, and one of of electronic music prodigy, The Presets. Crushing the scene for the past decade, K.I.M has on-and-off, reappeared at clubs and festivals under this solo moniker for techno-heavy DJ sets.
Here is a band that's built their name on the live circuit. Nocturnal Tapes have one of the most dynamic and pummelling live shows going around at the moment and it's backed by their groundbreaking source material- more recently, their acclaimed 'Visions IV' EP. Spending the better part of this year on the road, now is the time to witness the spectacle of Nocturnal Tapes.
With a Splendour in the Grass main stage set firmly under their belts, WHARVES are a primal force to be reckoned with. The Lennox Head dour-piece's new track 'Love Decide' sees the group placed among some of the great indie rock bands this country has ever seen.
Eliza & The Delusionals
Acclaimed Gold Coast-based indie rock band Eliza & The Delusionals are one of the most exciting groups breaking out at the moment. Led by colourful front woman, Eliza Klatt, the group have gone on to support Grinspoon, Killing Heidi, Nothing But Thieves and more.
Imposting a stratagem of music diversification, Machine Club makes music you can dance to with a razor sharp edge. Eschewing a daring mix of post-punk and heavy electrinca, Machine Club spurs a new shift in primal electricity. Debut single, 'Wise Up' is a seamless movement from his computer chair to the bigger stage.
With his new eras of synthetic producting taking grasp over the world- more recently with his debut EP, 'Game Within The Game'- DiskoDisco makes clever and modish synthwave production. After being blessed from Phantoms of dance music, Justice, DiskoDisco will take his leanings from the French Electronic music kings and provide a DJ set like none other.
