Ásgeir Australian 2017 Tour
Renowned for his ability to make even the largest of spaces feel intimate, Ásgeir comes armed on this tour with brand new material from his highly anticipated second album ‘Afterglow’, due for release in May via Pod/Inertia.
‘Afterglow’ leaves behind the folk-tinged acoustics of his debut ‘In The Silence’ and dives head first into melancholic, melodic electronica in its purest form.

Australiens Movie Review
So it falls upon Andi, her absent band mate (director, Jo Bauer), their bouncer (Lawrence Silver), their bored videographer (Tamara McLaughlin) and her geekish brother (Doug Hatch) to save the world… sorry… Australia (except Tasmania) from the alien onslaught. Low budget hijinks ensue.
Tim Burton's Mars Attacks did the cheap sci-fi spoof for $80M back in 1996. As Dolly Parton once said, "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap."
It's a shame Brisbane director/writer, Joe Bauer, ...
