Event Details

In a world-first performance, Australia’s newly formed avant-garde rock trio – The Drones’ Gareth Liddiard, Dirty Three’s Jim White and The Necks’ Chris Abrahams – make their global debut as Springtime in the Joan Sutherland theatre for Vivid LIVE, playing songs from their forthcoming record. Combining elements of free-jazz, lyricism, improvisation, avant-garde and experiment noise, the collaboration brings together three brilliant musicians from among Australia’s most respected bands. Liddiard is a founding member and the singer-songwriter for rock legends The Drones and sci-fi mud pop group Tropical Fuck Storm; White is a co-founder and drummer for Dirty Three, and frequent collaborator with Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Cat Power and Will Oldham; while Abrahams plays keyboards in beloved free-jazz trio The Necks, and has performed with The Church, Midnight Oil and the Triffids, to name just a few.

Individually, they’re already Sydney Opera House legends; together, their talents promise a show for the ages.
