Powertool’s Melbourne Invasion begins this week

Melbourne is about to experience an invasion of New Zealand musicians later this week, as Powertool Records are bringing three of their finest acts to Melbourne this July. From July 9th to 18th, venues across Melbourne will reverberate to an eclectic mix of New Zealand music, from the psychedelic swamp rock of Brother Love, to a unique brand of avant garde pop and “eclectotronica” courtesy of Gold Medal Famous, and the alternative pop genius of Vorn. Levitating Churches, Miniatures, Eli and Bev, Ninety Nine and Kakariko round out the Australian supports. However we must note that Levitating Churches features erstwhile ex-pat New Zealander Matt Alien (Slavetrader). Artist/musician Mia Schoen will also be doing a rare live performance, as will Matt Middleton (originally from New Zealand as well) under his legendary Crude moniker.
