Friday 24th February @ Melbourne Zoo

Californian dream pop and indie-rock band Warpaint are playing Melbourne Zoo Twilights in 2017, supported by Brooklyn’s Big Thief.

Warpaint’s studio albums, including their newly released third album Heads Up (2016) – which The Age dubbed “album-of-the-year contender” – emphasize moody atmospheres: gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves. This will be Warpaint’s third time in Australia, and first since their 2014 slot on the national Laneway Festival.

Big Thief’s music is rooted in the songs of singer Adrianne Lenker, filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Beat called their debut album Masterpiece “an honest and disarming account of the pain that comes with the gradual erosion of innocence and love.”

Mick Turner has had a dynamic and celebrated career as founding member of Dirty Three and will be performing his highly acclaimed solo work at Melbourne Zoo Twilights.

Canadian folk-pop singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright is making her Melbourne Zoo Twilights debut with support from New York’s Margaret Glaspy.

Throughout her career spanning two decades, she has shown great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter, stunning audiences with her incredible range and ability.

Singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy blends thoughtful song writing with simple melodies and a grungy rock edge, enamouring listeners with her intimate yet commanding sound. On her debut album Emotions and Math (2016) Pitchfork notes she has “the self-scrutinizing intimacy of Elliott Smith and the imaginative melodic intonations of Joni Mitchell.”

The Specials

Saturday 11th March @ Melbourne Zoo

England’s legendary ska band The Specials are performing at Melbourne Zoo Twilights for a closing night party under the stars.

Formed in Coventry in 1977, The Specials are one of the most influential groups in UK musical history. They combine the angry, disaffected voice of punk with the wind-your-waist sensibility of ska and reggae to re-define pop music. The cornerstone of their reputation is their killer sweat-drenched live shows, and an attitude that walked like it talked.
