Tue Mar 11
8pm
The Toff
Level 2
252 Swanston St
Melbourne

FRANCIS PLAGNE BIG BAND
Melbourne based 'fractured kaleidoscope pop sound artist extraordinaire' Francis Plagne's work combines electronics, field recordings, instrumental improvisation and 'sweetly awkward psych-pop'. In this performance he will appear alongside Connal Parsley, Joe Talia, Ned Collette, Anthony Pateras, members of Snawklor and others, in a set swinging between the accessible, the awkward and the adventurous.

POLETO PRA (Pateras/Fusinato)
Visual artist and extreme noise practitioner and enthusiast Marco Fusinato and compositional and prepared instrumental genius Anthony Pateras join forces appearing respectively on electronics + guitar and analogue synthesiser, promising a set of carefully nuanced brutality.

THE ANCIENTS
The Ancients is the child of Mum Smokes members Jon Mitchell, in which full reign is given to his ability to craft charming and formally experimental pop miniatures, accompanied by full band.

CHRISTINA TESTER
Christina Tester is a young sound artist who explores everyday materials and the human voice. At the Toff she presents a work for highly amplified kitchen materials

This is clearly a night not to be missed!!
