“After yesterday’s entry about CocoRosie’s new album, here comes a new story of brotherly estrangement for the benefit of creativity.
As with Sierra (Coco) and Bianca (Rosie) Casady, life’s vicissitudes separated Angus and Julia Stone in their native Australia and they reunited years later in South America.
They have since released two albums under the consistently simple name of Angus & Julia Stone, A Book Like This (2007) and Down the Way (2010). I first discovered them in the promotional CD of French magazine Les Inrockuptibles through their song Big Jet Plane, and I couldn’t believe that (seemingly) familiar song wasn’t a cover. I haven’t stopped listening to them ever since.
They’re both deliciously hippie and insultingly beautiful and they were recently touring in France, so keep your eyes open because they might be coming to theatres near you any time soon”. (End of the past entry)
Well, any time soon is for us Bruxellois December 13, 2010, and the place, the Ancienne Belquique concert hall. The concert was originally scheduled for the fantastically atmospheric ABClub hall, and logically the tickets were sold out almost inmediately. It seems, however, that the concert has now been moved to the ABBox and there are some new tickets available. It’s not the Main Hall, so I guess they’ll be sold out soon again.
Go ahead and book your tickets now at: www.abconcerts.be
ANGUS AND JULIA STONE, DECEMBER 13, 2010, at ANCIENNE BELGIQUE.
Here’s a video of their song Just A Boy:
See you at AB,
