Hanoi get ready!

With three critically acclaimed albums under their belt, along with two bootleg remix albums that set the blogosphere on fire and past tours with Daft Punk, Björk, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, CSS, Super Furry Animals, The Killers, Mogwai and more, Brooklyn’s favourite electro wizkids are bringing their special brand of mayhem to Vietnam for the first time this month.

Fresh from their debut shows in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong and riding high on a wave of sell-out dates from San Francisco to Sydney on their LP3 world tour RATATAT are set to hit Hanoi for one night only this May 30.

Unless we haven’t made ourselves clear – this is serious shit people!

One night. World-class talent. Dancefloor mayhem. You have been warned.

Love and Paranoia in Hanoi

•September 24, 2008 • 4 Comments

C.A.M.A. is proud to be at the fore in bringing Australian electro pop punk sensation Regurgitator and their signature sound to Vietnamese audiences for the first time next month, breaking their Asia tour to play a one-off show in Hanoi on Sunday October 12.

Local acts Ngu Cung, My Favourite Uncle and Holy Red Cross will join the band for a truly international night of rock.

Originally from Brisbane, Regurgitator have been making waves both at home and abroad for more than 10 years with their genre-smashing fusion of pop, punk, electro and indie rock.

Credited with reinvigorating the Australian indie rock scene with the release of their debut album Tu Plang in 1996, the band has since gone on to release a total of 12 albums and EPs, winning both popular and critical acclaim for their innovative sound and their ironic take on modern pop culture.

The band is presently touring to celebrate the release of their most recent album Love & Paranoia, which was recorded in Brazil in late 2007.

Currently consisting of Vietnamese-Australian lead singer/guitarist Quan Yeomans, making his first trip to Vietnam, bassist Ben Ely, drummer Peter Kostic and keyboardist Seja Vogel, Regurgitator will be stopping in to play their Hanoi show in between dates in Hong Kong, Laos and China.

Regurgitator, Tiger Rock Your Passion winners Ngu Cung, My Favourite Uncle and Holy Red Cross will be playing at Hanoi’s American Club (19 Hai Ba Trung) on Sunday October 12 from 5.30-10.30pm. Tickets to the show are priced at just VND30,000, available only on the door. Limited numbers only so be in to win.
