05/02 – Future Yard
Aussie groovers BANANAGUN are set to serve up their tropical cocktail of psychedelia, exotica and Afrobeat to Birkenhead’s Future Yard in February 2022. And we can’t wait to take a sip. The Melbourne five-piece join us midway through their UK tour, finally able to take their incredible debut LP on the road. Released in 2020 when the world was locked down, The True Story of Bananagun was, for many, a joyful tonic that transported us to sunnier places we couldn’t access. Its seamless blend of Fela Kuti-esque rhythms, colourful psych melodies and jazz-soaked sonorities made for a dose of pure escapism. Self-described as “a party unto ourselves”, their live show is set to be a completely intoxicating affair. Expect bongos, brass, strings and cowbells aplenty. Combined with their infectiously joyous stage presence, it’s going to be hard to walk out of this one without a smile on your face.
