VICTOR STRANGES & THE FUTURISTS will be performing a matinee show of ELVIS COSTELLO hits and obscurities at one of Melbourne's most iconic venues, Wesley Anne on Sunday 18th September.

The performance is not a costume changing tribute show, rather an affirmation of Stranges' love for the songs of Costello. The 4 piece band will play 2 x 45 minute sets drawing from Costello's first 20 years of making records from My Aim Is True (1977) to All This Useless Beauty (1996).

The songs are stripped back, revealing their subtlety, glorious structures and remaining faithful to the original album arrangements. Playing the radio songs to the more unknown album tracks, this is the ultimate indulgence for the die hard Elvis Costello fan.

Special Guest performance from Tim Reid.

The venerable Wesley Anne is one of Melbourne’s oldest and prettiest venues and is housed in a former church with rough stone walls. A show not to be missed.

Pop Preservation Society is proud to present an intimate night at Jimmy Hornet with local rock legends, Victor Stranges & The Methinks. They will be bringing their melodic post-punk kitchen sink drama to the stage. Also appearing will be Melbourne singer-songwriter, Liliana.

Victor Stranges & The Methinks will be performing with a new lineup including Mike Dupp (keyboards), James Lockwood (bass) and Frank Scalzo (drums/vocals). Stranges’ album, “Hello Me To You”, was named as one of the Best Albums of 2009 by Pop Underground, which is a community of writers, musicians, industry observers and fans united in their love of insanely great popular music. The band will be playing a retrospective of songs from Stranges’ twenty plus year career.

Twenty-four year singer and pianist, Liliana, will be opening the night with her brand of soul inspired dream pop. A wonderful storyteller, Liliana’s haunting vocals and musical styling seamlessly weaves her original songs with the occasional rendering of classic pop.
