Melbourne will come alive this summer with Melbourne Museum’s Nocturnal Friday nights, this month featuring acclaimed electronic dance outfit, Roland Tings on Friday, 3rd of November.
Offering an evening of unheard sounds and wondrous questioning, Roland will deliver a high-fidelity experience different to all others in the field. Roland will be joined by Julian Sudek (Mercy Arms/World Champion) who is on acoustic drums and electronic pads, Yama Hondow-Wellby on keyboard.
Other performers on the night will include Annie Bass, a recent Triple J success story. With her heartfelt electronica and swoon-worthy lyrics, and with a background in Jazz, Annie’s talent as an accomplished vocalist and songwriter will include her single ‘Don’t Want’, which received widespread airplay on Triple J.
Other performers include András, the popular producer and musician known by the name of Andrew Wilson. Host of Triple RRR’s Strange Holiday, this maestro will provide an eclectic mix of electronic op-shop beats and cruisy sounds for modern living.
