I first had the pleasure to hear Michael Gira almost a decade ago, when he visited Australia as part of All Tomorrow’s Parties. That concert is burned into my memory as one of the most powerful and compelling collections of song I have ever had the opportunity to come in contact with.
Michael Gira is a very unique and powerful chapter of the American songbook. His performances are transcendent, they are wholly consuming and to me summurise the very essence of what song is about.
I couldn’t be more pleased he accepted our invitation to come to Australia in 2016.
