One of Australia’s most successful and respected bands, Something for Kate will be performing a special show on Saturday, February 16 at Badlands Bar, gracing the pop-up outdoor stage with special guests to be announced. The show is part of Badlands’ series of outdoor shows which includes the sold-out Ziggy Alberts show on February 15, and the massive City Limits Festival on March 2.

Occupying a unique place in the musical landscape, Something for Kate have been a household name for nearly 20 years while also being somewhat of an enigma. The band has released six top ten gold and platinum albums, sold over half a million records in Australia alone and amassed a staggering 16 Australian Record Industry Awards (ARIA).

To their credit, their music has proven difficult to classify – Cerebral, subtle and original, the band have an enormous cult-like following, have won Australian Music Industry Critics Awards for their intense live performances, Rolling Stone gongs for best band, best album & best male vocalist along with countless awards and have toured with everyone from David Bowie to Death Cab for Cutie.

The band continue to make fiercely original and challenging records attracting what has been described as a cult- like following, while also gaining new and loyal listeners with each release.

Don’t miss this opportunity to catch one of the country’s finest acts in a unique setting, plus there’s easy access to public transport and food trucks galore to cater for every taste bud.

“Something for Kate’s songs ‘are sophisticated and evocative, disconnected to a degree from the prevailing style of the era, although connected to Australian music in the way that Dempsey, like Midnight Oil’s Jim Mogine, can see how minor details can rear up and become a song’s focus'”
