THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
LUCIE THORNE 3.15pm til 4.30 pm
Painting landscapes with dream-soaked synths, irresistible beats, poetry and pathos, Lucie Thorne presents her extraordinary new art/pop concept album Kitty & Frank. With Kitty & Frank, Thorne traces the wild true stories of young frontier woman Kitty Walsh and her lover, the charismatic bandit Frank Gardiner. In the 1860’s Gold Fever came to Wheogo NSW and like Deadwood, it didn’t end well. Inhabiting a sonic world that calls to mind a meeting of David Bowie’s Blackstar and Kate Bush’s Ariel, via Grimes and Alice Coltrane, Kitty & Frank spans a tale of Shakespearean proportions. All this at the hands of one of Australia's finest song-poets who has ventured to triumphant new ground with staggering certitude.
Lucie is touring far and wide throughout the spring to celebrate the album's release - and for this Melbourne show she'll be joined by stellar bandmates Hamish Stuart (drums), Alice Williams (bass & harmonies) and Kade Brown (keyboards).
“Thorne conjures a simple narrative flow that, like a Raymond Carver story, transforms everyday life into high art” (Canberra Times)
