Painters and Dockers Heading Back to St Kilda with special guests PELVIS

“The first mistake about art is to assume it’s serious” – Lester Bangs.

Live shows by the Painters and Dockers are a total entertainment experience. A band based in punk rock, power pop with soulful horns, instant classic songs, flamboyance and showmanship as good as it gets. It’s not a superior air that they bring to the stage – it’s a communal, one-in all-in let’s take this baby to the stars and hang there as long as we can in an orgy of outrageous exuberance. The gig IS the after-party, right from the start, and everyone’s invited.

Do not assume this band is without a message. Do not assume they don’t sound incredible live. Do not assume that your new favourite band won’t be forty years old.
They were only suppose to play once!

Some 2000 shows later, twelve albums later and tours of North America, Canada, New Zealand and all over Australia under the belt, the band now have an esteemed place in Australian rock history.

Well known songs by the band include DIE YUPPIE DIE, NUDE SCHOOL, KILL KILL KILL, YOU’RE GOING HOME IN THE BACK OF A DIVI VAN, ALL MEN ARE BASTARDS, MOHAWK BABY, I KNOW BETTER QUEENS THAN THAT, NEW WORLD ORDER, THE BOY WHO LOST HIS JOCKS ON FLINDERS STREET STATION and countless more.

The Dockers will be proudly supported by Adelaide, psychedelic, retro-post-punk, New Wave outfit, ‘Pelvis’. Pelvis recently recorded ‘Advance Australia Where?’ with The Dockers at MONA, Hobart on the original Abby Road desk that was used by the Beatles.
