The tour is now imminent with the first show this Friday evening in Adelaide at the EMU Space, 8pm ($10.) From there it’s a traipse down to Mount Gambier, then onto Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney in the coming weeks.
(via Steve Phillips at Sensory Projects):
Find Panoptique Electrical live in 2009 and you will experience the extension in the line-up, coming via the addition of Zoe Barry(cello) and Jed Palmer (guitar – Bergerac, Mist & Sea, Hope Diamond), and Tristan Louth-Robins (electronic touches). The results are expansive depth of sound, the combination of guitar drones, Zoe’s exquisite cello work, and nuances and tones from Louth-Robins, recalling early 4ad outfits The Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil and their mesmeric recorded works.
Celebrating the release of the new album, PANOPTIQUE ELECTRICAL will perform the following shows:
Fri 7 Aug 2009 – ELECTRONIC MUSIC UNIT, Adelaide University, South Australia
Sun 9 Aug 2009 – VARCOE’S FOUNDRY, Mount Gambier, South Australia
Thurs 13 Aug 2009 – THE CURTIN BANDROOM, Carlton, Melbourne, with
Great Earthquake(www.myspace.com/greatearthquake), and
Wed 19 Aug 2009 – FRONT GALLERY & CAFÉ, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, with Tristan Louth-Robins (solo)
Sun 23 Aug 2009 – DON’T LOOK GALLERY, Sydney, New South Wales, with Catfingers.
This PANOPTIQUE ELECTRICAL tour is financially assisted by the Sound Travellers initiative.
