TEX PERKINS AND MATT WALKER
SATURDAY 15th MAY
The original bad-ass frontman of Australian rock and roll, Tex Perkins has a celebrated history. A man whose career has taken him from experimental punktronica through to the dizzying heights of multiple ARIA awards and recognition with The Cruel Sea and Beasts of Bourbon, he is now in an exclusive, intimate and acoustic performance in North Queensland, getting his swamp blues groove on. Now is Tex’s exciting new (and long over due) collaboration with Matt Walker (a great artist in his own right) for duo shows.
It’s a blues swamp-groove kinda thing that’s a little reminiscent of some of the things in Tex’s back catalogue.
“…an artist who must surely be regarded as one of the greatest front men in the country.” – The Music
ABOUT THE WONDERLAND SPIEGELTENT /
The Wonderland Spiegeltent Festival Hub tours nationally from Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Barwon Heads, Sunshine Coast, Port Douglas, Townsville and Cairns bringing tropical vibes, great times and world class cabaret, comedy, circus and music along with a festival atmosphere.
The nostalgic Wonderland Spiegeltent is the most enchanting of structures – feel the weight of ten thousand late nights when you walk inside, evoking stories of love, passion and debauchery from Europe in the 1930s. Velvet and brocade curtains balloon inside, whispering the secrets of performances gone by; intimate booths, a circular stage and stained-glass windows transport you back to an era of cheek and charm, sass and decadence – the lusty, busty crème de la crème of the cabaret world. A Magical experience!
