Sydney's Shrapnel Play Sonic Sherpa W/ Pat Ridgewell! says
We have an awesome Oz instore double-header happening in Sonic Sherpa on Saturday 21 January, 2017 when Sydney's rising stars Shrapnel join forces with local luminary Pat Ridgwell for an indie rock instore for the ages!

Last October Shrapnel launched their killer debut LP 'Tranceplanetsugarmouth' on Belly's label Coolin' By Sound, and it's quickly become a favourite of punters and critics alike, with some of the reviews so far stating:

"Tranceplanetsugarmouth rewards well beyond the initial prominence of its guitar-led assault. It's an album of genuine depth, where bitterness and silliness and premature mid-life crisis self-evaluation and blank-canvas experimentation all find a way to be mongrelled into an honest snapshot, without becoming slowed by an over-analyses of the specifics."
Rolling Stone Australia

“The album is a languid opus of wry, sun-drunk catharsis rabidly in love with classical pop convention from the cracked underground gods."
Sonic Masala

"'Tranceplanetsugarmouth' is a debut that is easy to digest, but offers a significant amount of deeper pleasures on close inspection".

Pat Ridgewell, meanwhile, forged a path years ago as frontman of awesome Brisbane '80s/'90s lo-fi experimentalists Small World Experience, who've blasted back onto the scene this year with some reissues of old material and, excitingly, the impending release of a brand new album 'Soft Knocks' on awesome Bris indie label Tenth Court scheduled for early 2017. Pat's been playing regular solo gigs of late so will be in great form and showcasing tunes both old and new.

You don't get much better free double-header gigs than this one, and the music of the two acts will complement each other perfectly, so chuck Saturday 21 January in the old diary and come down to Sonic Sherpa for some free indie rock (then head to The Bearded Lady later that night to catch Shrapnel in full flight with support from brilliant locals Turnpike)!

WHO: Shrapnel (1.30pm) & Pat Ridgewell (12.30pm)
WHEN: Saturday 21 January
WHERE: Sonic Sherpa (in car park of Stones Corner Hotel)
