'Prints of the Pigeons' – QSO with Tom Thum & Gordon Hamilton

  • Brisbane Powerhouse Theatre 119 Lamington Street New Farm QLD (map)

QSO Current

4pm & 6pm @ Brisbane Powerhouse Theatre

The unholy combination of Tom Thum and Gordon Hamilton is resurrected! We’ll team with some special guests and the mighty QSO with an all-new program of blasphemous music for beatboxer and orchestra. We have one of Australia's most highly respected emcees and lyricists MANTRA joining us on stage to bring his unique brand of lyrical dexterity to life. Also gracing the stage on digital percussion is Brisbane legend Dave Acosta Atkins (Resin Dogs, Wolfmother, a million other things) who's MPC wizardry is going to bring kilodecibels of dopeness to the arrangements. Also joining us is Jamie MacDowell (he has fabulous hair). This has such a great opportunity to further push the formula we found with our last collaborative effort, but more importantly it has been amazing to find and follow new directions as our creative processes have become more intertwined in a melodic wrestling match. (Imagine two virtuosic carpet pythons.) We hope y'all enjoy the show as much as we did writing it.
