Cults announce GTM sideshows

New York indie duo Cults have announced a couple of Groovin The Moo sideshows to coincide with their visit this April.

Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion will play Sydney’s Metro Theatre on April 29, The Corner Hotel in Melbourne on April 30, The Zoo in Brisbane on May 6, and The Bakery in Perth on May 9.

The pair released their second album Static in October 2013 – the long-awaited follow-up to their eponymous debut. The record is the first we have heard from Oblivion and Follin since they ended their romantic relationship with one another last year, and as The Guardian noted in their review of the record, this “seems to have given their music a giddier, frantic edge.”

Cults were last on our shore for Laneway 2012 where they played alongside The Horrors and M83. Speaking with FL ahead of that tour discussed how the band was dealing with all the attention they had received from the press following the release of their debut.. “It’s funny because our album was about the feeling of wanting to be young forever and evade responsibility. and some how by making a record we’ve assumed more responsibility than we would have in any other career” he said. “It kind of sucks some times, but other times it’s really fun.”

Nah. The first sideshow is on Tuesday 19 April 2016.

Get your tickets early. The band could be massive by then.

Don't know whether I want to go or not.

Sydney show moved to Oxford Art Factory.


Quicky said on the 26th Feb, 2014

That is more of a reason for me to go. I'll give their albums a listen again and then decide whether or not it is worth going to see them.

High Road is a great song

A friend and I are procrastinating on buying tickets. Here's hoping the Brisbane show doesn't sell out in the next week for any reason. Out of curiosity, does anyone know the capacity of The Zoo?


Quicky said on the 16th Mar, 2014

According to this website, [URL=""] it has a capacity of 500. Not sure how many tickets the show has sold though.


Harrishun said on the 16th Mar, 2014

Hmm, I'm not sure either. Also, The Zoo has a very odd set-up and that seems like it takes into account the bar/pool area where you don't really get a good view of the stage. I'd think closer to 250 tickets would be on sale. Then again, I've only been there for one show and it wasn't an international act or anything, so I could be wrong.

It's way more than 250, dude. 500 is about right, but how those people fit in depends on the kind of band. Some bands will be the type where a large chunk of people crunch up into the front, which then usually leaves a bit more space in the areas behind the sound desk. But some bands, everyone just sort of mills around rather than crushing together.
