Things of Stone and Wood – Exclusive Melbourne Show

Date:

Share post:

MEMO Music Hall 18 December

Their only Melbourne appearance for 2015 will be held at MEMO as an exclusive Christmas show with Special guests: THE OLD MARRIED COUPLE (Syd).

Twenty-six years ago a rag-tag bunch of folkies got together and formed a band called Things of Stone and Wood that went on to define Melbourne in the early 90s.

Off the back of their top 10 single ‘Happy Birthday Helen’, the band achieved national success, international tours, a gold album ‘The Yearning’ and even a Late Show parody, kicking off a career that would place them as one of Australia’s most loved Folk-Rock bands.

Described as “Melbourne’s most inspired and inspiring acoustic band” (Michael Dwyer), their imaginative use of organic instruments set off an acoustic/folk movement that paved the way for the likes of John Butler, The Waifs and Angus & Julia Stone.

The band reformed last year for their 25th Anniversary and sold out three Northcote Social Clubs, as well as venues all around the country.

They’re back for their only Melbourne appearance for 2015 with an exclusive Christmas show at MEMO Music Hall on Friday 18 December.

Don’t miss this fantastic, energetic and iconic Melbourne band.
