Dig It Up! Melbourne Expands Sydney Adds Mystery Band

Dig it Up! the ever-evolving series of national concerts curated by the Hoodoo Gurus and conceived by Feel Presents, continues to roll out the surprises with the announcement today of two new participating venues for Melbourne and a mystery act confirmed for Sydney.

dig-it-up

The Pony Bar in Melbourne (68 Little Collins St and a short 5 min walk from The Palace) will open it's doors at the earlier than normal time of 3.00pm on Anzac Day playing host to Hoodoo Gurus' compadres Kim Salmon and Spencer P. Jones as well as young Geelong act The Murlocs. Kim and Spencer will perform a solo set each as well as a double act while The Murlocs (featuring Broderick Smith's young son Ambrose on vocals and harmonica) will perform a set of their blistering r'n'b. Get in early!

A revolving cast of local celebrities will also DJ at Pony during the day while in the Palace main room featured DJ's will include Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) among others.

And as it is with Sydney, the Melbourne Dig it Up! will now house a venue dedicated to comedy when the Spleen Bar (41 Bourke St and across the road from the Palace) opens it doors with featured comedians and fellow rock tragics Dave O'Neil, Andrew Goodone and CJ Fortuna.

Good enough for ya?

Sydney meantime, has snared seminal act Kids in Dust to complete the line-up of live activity. Kids in Dust performed just once, appearing at the Sydney Trade Union Club in the early 1980's, but appeared many other times under another name. Dig It Up! is sworn to secrecy over the true identity  of Kids in Dust, suffice to say fans of the genres represented by Dig it Up! are in for a massive surprise come 3.30pm April 22nd.

And joining Kids in Dust as the latest additions for Dig It Up! Sydney will be audio / visual collective Sounds of Seduction plus DJ's Jack Shit, Silky Doyle, Andy Travers, Nic Dalton and Stuart Coupe all brought on board to keep the party going.

In other Sydney Dig it Up! news all reserved seating tickets have now sold-out. General admission or dance floor tickets are all that remain - who's complaining?

Oh, and if you didn't already know it, Gold Watch: 20 Golden Greats, the new best of from the Hoodoo Gurus featuring the new single Use By Date, is on-sale now. Check the new TV ad for the goodness. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJiFWzybd5U&feature=youtu.be

Full performance schedules for both Sydney and Melbourne will be revealed very shortly. Until then tickets for both Sydney and Melbourne and also the Adelaide Dig it Up! are on-sale from www.digitup.net.au
