In Brief: Sideshows - Dum DumGirls, Hanni El Khatib, TEED,Metronomy

Dum Dum Girls have announced a series of sideshows around Australia this summer on the back of appearances at the Peats Ridge, Pyramid Rock and No Years festivals to show off the fuzzy, 50s and 60s-influenced girl group sound of their new album Only In Dreams.

Dum Dum Girls sideshows:
Monday 2nd January – Oxford Art Factory, Sydney
Tuesday 3rd January – Corner Hotel, Melbourne

Hanni El Khatib is celebrating the release of his debut album of hat he calls ‘knife fight music’ Will The Guns Come Out by heading to Australia for the Pyramid Rock and Peats Ridge festivals.

The first generation American son of Palestinian and Filipino immigrants, combines punk rock with 1950s and 60s Americana on the album and will play two very intimate sideshows on his tour..

Hanni El Khatib sideshows:
Thursday 29th December – FBi Social, Sydney
Sunday 1st January – The Tote, Melbourne

With a moniker like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, you really can’t help but like UK producer Orlando Higginbottom. Or, considering his performances feature a “dancing dinosaur”, at least be bemused enough to want to check out the live show. Right?

TEED is already on the bill at Field Day, Falls Festival and Southbound and he’s announced a few additional sideshows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs sideshows:
Tuesday 3rd January – I OH YOU, Melbourne
Wednesday 4th January – Trinity Bar, Canberra
Thursday 5th January – Woodland Bar, Brisbane

Metronomy are riding high on universal acclaim for their Mercury Prize-nominated third album, The English Riviera and will make appearances on the stages at Falls, Field Day, Summerdayze and Southbound over the New Years period. They also have a solitary headline show on offer for the lucky punters of Melbourne town.

Metronomy sideshow:
Friday 6th January – Hi-Fi, Melbourne

The show's actually at Roxanne Parlour, I Oh You are the guys organising it. Looks like an awesome show though, French Horn Rebellion and The Death Set are playing, as well as a stack of DJs and they haven't announced the headliner yet
