Beat and present Sydney’s lords of psychedelic drone, The Black Ryder, as they make their long awaited return to Melbourne for their first headline show of 2010 – and it’s a one off show exclusive to Tone Deaf @ Ding Dong. Lauded by the music press for their debut album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride and having toured with so many big bands (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Cult) that they probably have a roadie who’s sole job is to pick up the names they can rightfully drop, this is probably your only chance this year to see them in such an intimate setting.

Joining them on the night will be the driving shoe gaze candy wheels of the much blogged new buzz band Three Month Sunset, who are setting industry tongues wagging with their driving Slowdive meets Ride sonic dreamscapes. Softening up the crowd for this night of sonic bliss will be the Black Angels meets 13th Floor Elevators primitive psychedelic jams of Dreaming with Ghosts who will be launching their debut release.

It’s also the 13th anniversary of Jeff Buckley’s fateful Mississippi swim so expect a late night tribute to the truncated life of the troubled troubadour.

Throw in Outlawed DJs and special guests on the decks, drink specials and this is going to be one huge night. Anyone who’s come down to a Tone Deaf night this year will have seen how rammed they get and this will naturally sell out, so you know the score – get there early or RSVP here for cheaper guaranteed entry.
