'Sweet Creeps & Outlaws' ft. Henry Wagons, Jonny Fritz + Ruby Boots
Fri. 14 April 2017, 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm AEST
THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
In April 2017 the Sweet Creeps & Outlaws Tour featuring Henry Wagons, Jonny Fritz and Ruby Boots will, over five shows, do a rollicking Americana lap of the Australian East Coast.
Henry Wagons is a true renaissance man, with a unique swagger reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery. Drawing on a broad-ranging swag of influences, Henry's show is a high sensation roller coaster ride that ranges from the bluster of sweaty jumpsuit era Elvis, post karate kicks, to the sombre, drunken malaise of Lee Hazlewood. He can touch on the tenderness of a recently heart-broken Roy Orbison while simultaneously embracing the menace of Nick Cave.
Jonny Fritz makes a welcome return for the first time since 2015. When last we met our hero, Jonny had just wrapped up the purgative classic, Dad Country, his call to the rising generation for a renewed lyricism in country music, recorded in Jackson Browne’s personal recording studio and released by ATO Records. Now in his newest, Sweet Creep, which features Joshua Hedley and Dawes’ Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, the lyricism returns, but with a wide hopeful grin.
Ruby Boots’ music will stop you in your tracks. The rising Australian star, now based in Nashville TN, possesses a red wine-stained soulful voice that crackles with swagger and sorrow. Her fiercely honest lyrics strike deep into your heart while her music delivers an alluring mix of Americana, Rock, Folk and Blues. Leaving home at a young age, to work on pearling boats, is where she found the distance, space and time needed to hone her songwriting skills.
