Bird on The Wire Presents:

The Goon Sax + support from The Rebel

Live at The Garage, Highbury


The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC 6Music, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them rave reviews from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. According to Metacritic, Up To Anything was the 8th best-reviewed debut album anywhere in the world in 2016.

This September sees the release of their upcoming album, We’re Not Talking (out on Wichita Recordings). Having sold out their show at Sebright Arms, The Goon Sax next play The Garage!

“This is the sound of growing up smart” – Pitchfork
“Classic Brisbane pop” – Uncut
“Like living in a great coming-of-age film” – The Guardian

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday the 31st of May at 10am from Ticketweb.
