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.
