Saturday 4th May
Genre defining prog-rock/alternative metal band Tool will be back in Australia for the first time since their last visit headlining Big Day Out in 2011. You are bound to either love or hate this band; there is no middle ground. But if they are your style and you can pay the hefty ticket price, check them out.
Allphones Arena, Sydney Olympic Park,
$108.35 – $135.85
Thursday 9th May
Anna Free & the Unsolved Crimes
Don’t expect anything too original from these guys; they are a pop-rock outfit with throwbacks to bands of yesteryear – think Missy Higgins. However, Anna has an impressive set of lungs on her, the band provides good, easy-listening backing tracks and the gig is free,
so why not?
Union Hotel Newtown,
Sunday 12th May
Matthew may not look like the serenading type but just let his fingers do the talking. This man knows his way around a guitar and he likes to play flamenco music. That is all you need to know about him, so this is a show for all fans of Spanish guitar.
Cat and Fiddle Hotel Balmain,
$20 or $15 for concessions
