An Opera House block party with the Avalanches

Saturday night inside out. Following the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Wildflower, the Avalanches return to the Sydney Opera House for a Vivid Music Block Party on Bennelong Point. The event, taking place across two nights on May 26 and 27, will feature the band playing select tracks from both Wildlower and their debut album Since I Left You.

Joining the duo, comprised of Robbie Chatter and Tony Di Blasi, for the event include Briggs, DJ Shadow and Sampa The Great, as well as a live band to accompany their performance: “It’s ends up being easy [performing our music live] with this band that we’ve got, cause the musician’s are so great and the energy is so great,” says Chatter. “We had the idea of playing some parties and then we had a relationship with Vivid after DJing there years ago … so we’re looking forward to it. It’s going to be a great party and the guys who are playing with us are lots of fun.”
