Spiral Stairs returns to Australia to launch his new album "WE WANNA BE HYP-NO-TIZED" and kicks off the tour with this show at the Stones Corner Hotel on Saturday 20 April (Easter Saturday), supported by an excellent local contingent in The Stress Of Leisure, Eyes Ninety and Electric Zebra!
Spiral Stairs was last in Brisbane in late-2017 off the back of his acclaimed second solo album 'Doris & The Daggers' – slaying a huge crowd at Black Bear Lodge with his crack band and a slew of old Pavement numbers augmenting his rock solid solo fare – and this tour should be even more fun now he’s armed with the powerful new tracks from 'We Wanna be Hyp-No-Tized' and promising to throw even more Pavement songs into the mix!
This great line-up happens midway through the Easter long weekend and coincides with the opening of the brand-spanking new band room at the Stones Corner Hotel – promising a whole new tailored experience for both bands and punters – so there’s plenty of reasons to get along when this legendary historical figure brings the magic to Stones Corner!
