Friday 2nd September @ The Tote
The Silver Jews were formed by David Berman, Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich and became the vehicle for the lyrical genius of Berman, the band’s only constant member. Over six full length albums and a scattering of singles and EPs, they evolved from the embodiment of lo-fi to become the best band most people had never heard of. This one-off show will celebrate the Joos’ canon of work, with some of Australia and New Zealand’s finest musicians interpreting the band’s songs and performing their own compositions. Get in quick, this will sell out.

Friday 2nd September @ Yarraville Club, Yarraville
Footy satirist Titus O’Reily finally leaves the house to deliver his thoughts on life, love and footy. Well, footy. Written to help pay off mounting legal debts and work through some long standing personal issues, Titus looks back at the season that was and the finals to come.
Joined on stage by his podcast co-host Sergio Paradise, they dissect what it means to be a footy fan in the era of ‘leadership groups’, ‘handball receives’ and ‘David Koch’.
Critics have described the show as ‘funnier than Richmond’s season’, ‘more inaccurate than Travis Cloke’ and ‘’certainly not WADA compliant’.
