6pm doors, 8pm show
On the back of their third successful run at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Sydney act Facemeat return home to Django Bar with a sneak peek of their new material ahead of the release of their second album for Art As Catharsis Records. Building on their Rock Opera the band seamlessly blends a vast spoken word narrative with diegetic and non-diegetic music.
Across two sets of contrasting tones the journey examines the awful secrets of an old family home and traces their ripple effect down the generations. Musically the show traverses everything from rock through blues, motown, afrobeat to cha-cha-cha, while the text deals in tones elegiac, wry, reflective and absurd.
