Wednesday 25th May 2022
8.00pm - 11.00pm
As Victoria continues to stretch its legs to shake off the lockdown blues, two-piece indie pop-rock band This Way North with their long-time mate and acclaimed singer-songwriter Mark Lang (Skipping Girl Vinegar) will be touring throughout regional Victoria this May/June – bringing some much-needed live music and connection to the people of regional Victoria.
With both acts residing regionally in Victoria (This Way North hailing from Yackandandah & Mark Lang in Point Lonsdale) they are so excited to share their music and connect with other wonderful communities around the state.
Rich with melody and storytelling, singer-songwriter Mark Lang has returned with his debut solo release. A renowned lyricist and storyteller, his performances are a must-see immersive live experience. Mark has written three critically acclaimed albums making many ‘Album Of The Year’ lists as the singer-songwriter of Australian indie band Skipping Girl Vinegar. Returning home after an extensive North American and European solo tour pre-covid, which included appearances at the legendary Cambridge Folk Festival, Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals to a sell-out launch at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Mark is ready to get back out on the road and do what he does best!
This Way North is still celebrating the release of their third and final EP (released early 2021), with the duo receiving wide acclaim and rotation on Double J and ABC Radio National. Full of rapturous nostalgia, This Way North’s music takes you from moody, tremolo-tinged heart-tuggers to pounding driving alt-psych rock through a sonic landscape of reverb-soaked guitars and rolling rhythms. With odes to 90’s rock sitting on air-tight grooves and full, cinematic spaciousness, This Way North’s music is a portal to summer festivals, their love affair with the road, and an open invitation to turn up the volume and let loose.
Accompanying shows in each town which will include support from local artists, as well as working with youth of each area conducting music and songwriting workshops. With both acts growing up regionally, their passion to continue to support young people through music is something they share – especially at a time when teaching young people to express themselves creatively and live music is needed more than ever.
