Big Year Booked For Little Birdy

Who: Little Birdy, 78 SAAB
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Friday January 28, 2005

BUSY SCHEDULE: Little Birdy will perform at the Cambridge Hotel on January 28. if LESS than two weeks into the new year and it already looks set to be the biggest yet for Perth quartet LITTLE BIRDY. The band's avalanche of live shows began last week with an appearance at the SOUTHBOUND FESTIVAL at home in Perth alongside the likes of THE THRILLS, VERUCA SALT and PETE MURRAY. It acted as a warm-up before the band joins the BIG DAY OUT for the first time on a five-date run nationally.

As if that wasn't enough, Little Birdy has also been invited to take part in the prestigious SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST music festival at Austin, Texas, in March.

Now in its 18th year, the festival is renowned for uncovering new talent and each year only a handful of Australian bands are asked to play at the event.

Little Birdy lead singer if KATY STEEL will follow in the footsteps of older brother Luke of SLEEPY JACKSON fame who played at last year's event.

When the band returns to Australia it will jump straight back on the tour bus and join REM on a five-date tour of Australia.

Novocastrian fans will have the chance to see if Little Birdy in action in the middle of its run with the Big Day Out when the band performs at the CAMBRIDGE HOTEL on Friday, January 28, with 78 SAAB. Tickets went on sale this week and are available from THE ROCK SHOP, BEAUMONT STREET BEAT and SOUND WORLD.
