Electronic band Morcheeba makes their long-awaited return to Australian shores. Skye Edwards’ smoky vocals paired with Ross Godfrey’s chilled-out beats have made Morcheeba a dinner-party staple since the 1990s. Their distinct trip-hop sound fuses influences like jazz, funk and R&B into something effortlessly cool. Local songstress Ruby Jackson will open the show with her neo-soul stylings.

March 20 The Damned

Closing out the month is a punk rock dream team, as The Damned reconvene their “classic lineup” from the late 70s. With original members Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies and Paul Gray, the godfathers of goth-tinged punk will unleash fan favourites from albums like Machine Gun Etiquette. After 35 years apart, their Australian fans are in for an historic, hell-raising performance.

So whether your taste runs to anthemic post-punk, hazy electronica or hardcore punk, The Tivoli has an iconic UK act to satiate your musical cravings. Don’t miss out on these once-in-a-lifetime shows in the Valley.
