Dandy Warhols, SilversunPickups team up for Harvestsideshows

The Dandy Warhols and Silversun Pickups have joined the Harvest sideshow listings announcing headline shows in Perth and Adelaide.

The Dandy Warhols annual Australian tour follows recent visits in May last year, for Parklife in 2010; in 2008 for Fat As Butter; and the beginning of 2007 at Falls. (Ok, so they aren’t here every year.) The band’s eighth album This Machine was released in May and described by FL’s reviewer as “a strange concoction of cheek and gothic reserve.”

Silversun’s previous Australian visit in back in 2010 when the band was in the country to play the support slot on Birds of Tokyo’s tour and just one solitary headline gig. Guitarist and lead vocalist Brian Aubert told FL that band was very keen to arrange extra headline shows this time around. “Believe me, every time we come to Australia we come on the back of something else, and we’re always scheming,” Aubert revealed. “We were really happy Birds of Tokyo let us do the Melbourne show, that was really cool of them. We were really scheming to do more.”

For their tour in November, Silversun’s lineup will be slightly shuffled as with bass player Nikki Monninger’s pregnancy forcing her to miss the tour. She’ll be replaced by Sarah Negahdari from promising Los Angeles outfit The Happy Hollows for the Harvest dates and sideshows.

Other acts to have announced Harvest sideshows include Cake, Ben Folds Five, Sigur Ros, Grizzly Bear, Beruit, and The War On Drugs.

We go behind the Harvest announcement to present a definitive guide to everything you need (and don’t really need) to know about this year’s bill.

if it's through harvest presents which it most likely will be, it will be AA as per AJ's system of all shows (EXCEPT HARVEST ITSELF) being AA where possible
unless of course its at the annandale or manning bar which is pretty unlikely

It's very unlikely. But SSPU could still organise their own Syd/Bris shows. I think they aren't doing Melb because that was the only headline show they did last tour.

shazie said on the 18th Sep, 2012



If it was their own concert and if it wasn't smack bang in the middle of my uni finals then yeah definitely would have gone to one of them.



Don't worry, I can still organise a sydney show.

its more likely cause there's two harvests
i think its likely theyll play in sydney and brisbane, just maybe not the co-headline show

andy_chalmers_102 said on the 18th Sep, 2012

Why do you think it's likely that they'll play in Brisbane and Sydney? AJ has made it clear on several occasions that the vast majority of sideshows would be in the non-Harvest cities. There's literally nothing to indicate any likelihood of a sideshow for either of these bands in Sydney or Brisbane.

EDIT:


@iamnotshouting does that mean no Brisbane Sideshow for @SSPU ? If not i have to arrange flights

@Azazel23 no sorry no side shows in Brisbane this year.

The only way there will be more sideshows is if the Harvest cities sell out soon.

It doesn't sound like that is going to happen so there won't be sideshows.

if @sir toire is correct with infor from sspu website then it's crazy as it's the same night as the adelaide's sigur ros sideshow! :(

Patrick Holmes

Patrick Holmes said on the 20th Sep, 2012

exactly. now it's clashing with sigur ros. was that not clearly the worst choice of date? why not have sigur ros playing adelaide and sspu perth, then the other way around. fucking stupid!

Looks like I'm going to Adelaide for two nights.

Patrick Holmes

Patrick Holmes said on the 20th Sep, 2012

they've done it in perth too though, haven't they?
but yes, exactly right.
ah, my first world adelaide living problems.

I'll probably see Sigur at Harvest.

cozza147 said on the 20th Sep, 2012

Same night as Sigur Ros in both cities. Does that seem slighty retarded

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 20th Sep, 2012

I'd rather see Sigur Ros.

I'm lost. I get the Dandy Warhols lyric reference, but are you trying to say all three bands are currently irrelevant? Because Los Campesinos! and Silversun Pickups definitely aren't.

Patrick Holmes

Patrick Holmes said on the 23rd Oct, 2012

Even more reason to be gutted missing the adelaide sideshow. Why must Sigur Rós clash?? :(

Set times on Harvest website say that SSPU and Dandies only get an hour each at the sideshows anyway, so probably same setlist as Harvest.

I wouldn't want a Harvest in adelaide anyway, I don't think. It's one of those festivals that traveling for is worth it and makes it even better.
But SSPU would have sold better if it weren't for sigur ros, I know that.

That's pretty much the same smug expression that will be on Ben Folds' face for the entirety
