Australia’s seminal indie-pop-rock trio Even have just turned 25 and to celebrate, the band have announced a string of headline gigs around the country before their national tour dates with long-time pals, The Dandy Warhols.
It’s been a quarter of a century since singer-songwriter / guitarist Ashley Naylor, drummer Matthew Cotter and bassist Wally Kempton first took the stage at North Fitzroy’s Empress of India Hotel, and seven studio albums later, the band have earned a solid reputation as one of the country’s most adored indie bands emerging from the ‘90s.
Significant rotation on triple j and frequent national and international touring saw Even amass a devoted and long-term fan base, who fast became charmed by the band’s sparkling guitar melodies and splendid power-pop hooks.
Kicking off in Melbourne on Thursday September 26 at Howler, The Even ’25 Years’ anniversary tour will see the band cross over to Marrickville Bowlo on Friday September 27, before settling into Adelaide’s Jive Bar on Saturday October 12. Alongside the Dandy shows, Even will also perform at Scene & Heard Festival in Brisbane and Newcastle.
