IMMIGRANT UNION'S ALBUM LAUNCH w Lowtide, Crepes & Masco Sound System.
Saturday, 13 June 2015 at 8:00 pm - Sunday, 14 June 2015 at 1:00 am (AEST)
Like Spiritualized being baptised in a river of Credence Clearwater, Melbourne’s masters of psychedelic folk and Laurel Canyon country Immigrant Union will be celebrating the Australian release their second studio album ‘Anyway’ with a show at £1000 Pound Bend on Saturday the 13th of June.
Immigrant Union formed over beers via a chance meeting between Brent DeBoer of the Dandy Warhols and Bob Harrow. Their friendship grew, they acquired the talented vocalist and keyboard player Peter Lubulwa, a band emerged and over the years has seen members including Courtney Barnett, Dave Mudie and Bones Sloan who feature on 'Anyway'. These days Immigrant Union's lineup sees Ben Street and Paddy McGrath-Lester on bass and drums.
Countless shows later, Immigrant Union have supporting Noel Gallagher, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dead Meadow and toured their own headline shows, creating unforgettable moments at festivals, venues and many an odd backyard BBQ and house party across Australia and the world.
Immigrant Union are thrilled to announce that supporting them on the night will be an exceptional selection of bands. Lowtide, Crepes and Masco Sound System are rounding out the bill with Ellice and Cass from Pearls DJing throughout the night within the sophisticated surrounds of The Kelvin Club.
Get your fancy attire dry-cleaned, set your hair and come party with Immigrant Union as they toast the release of ‘Anyway’ with some of Melbourne’s finest musicians.
"You want the cutting edge of 2014 psychedelic pop, this is it. Is this album the catchiest, most melodically attractive release of the year? Very possibly." - Delarue: New York Music Daily.
"Immigrant Union revived the folk-rock wing of psychedelia." Jon Pareles: The New York Times
