Facebook brings word of a Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens show at the Polo:

Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens will use any excuse to cook up a night of music, whimsy, fairy lights and fake flowers, and the 52nd Day of Spring seemed as good a reason as any. On October 22 (The 52nd day of Spring) the Polish White Eagle club will be transformed into an intimate garden party concert, featuring three unique local bands, with the support of the Canberra Musician’s Club.

Amidst the mish-mash of instruments on stage, JDSS aren’t afraid to bust out an op-shop sourced Casio-tone, cello, an autoharp or even a banjo to serve a song. Fitting into the broad indie folk genre, Julia’s songs deal with everyday experiences and sometimes local history, with songs about love, loss, death and train accidents featuring in a usual set. The last year has seen the band play to packed out festival tents in Canberra and interstate, building their reputation as a live act not to be missed. Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens will expand their lineup on the evening to feature artists who performed on their latest album, Family Pets.

The performance will be JDSS’ last show in Canberra before Julia and drummer Nick head over to the UK to perform and work on new material in November.

Opening the night will be local three piece Elisha Bones, who have been described as “sweet songs that get manic with a fender”, followed by JDSS’ new inde-rock crush, Cracked Actor who are fresh out of the recording studio, having completed their debut album.

Entry $15/10 (conc.)/8 (CMC members)
