Heeeere’s JOHNNY!

Jonathan Boulet and The John Steel Singers have announced that they will be teaming up for a series of dual-headline shows in March, dubbed the ‘Here’s Johnny Tour’ (see what they did there?).

Sydney’s Jonathan Boulet released single You’re A Animal in December of last year to a strong international response, and will be releasing his sophomore album this year. His debut self-titled album was one of the best Australian releases of 2009, and lead single A Community Service Announcement in particular is one of the catchiest songs you will ever hear.

Meanwhile Brisbane’s John Steel Singers released their long-anticipated debut album ‘Tangalooma’ last year, with single Overpass receiving plenty of radio airplay and making it comfortably into the Hottest 100. They have supported acts such as Tame Impala and The Morning Benders, and always put on a charismatic and powerful live performance.

Both acts are very accomplished bands and have strong live shows to back up their respective debut albums. At around $20 for tickets this is an absolute bargain, and a rare chance to see two of the real up-and-coming bands in Australia live at the same show.
