Victor Stranges & The Methinks at The Tote

The Tote Hotel, 71 Johnston Street, Collingwood

Melbourne's own Victor Stranges & The Methinks are bringing their melodic post-punk kitchen sink drama to Melbourne's home of rock. They will be playing songs from Heading Back To You (2002) and Hello Me To You (2009). Joining the fracas will be Man City Sirens, Signal Chain and Catcher Block & The Sexy Bureaucrats.

Tickets $10 at the door from 7:00pm.

"Strangely enough, he sounds more like he began as a lounge singer, pulled from a musical at a young age and indoctrinated into a punk lifestyle of hard guitars and dark clubs." Brad McNaughton, Rip It Up (Adelaide)

"Hello Me To You, it's great." Edwyn Collins

Victor Stranges & The Methinks LIVE

The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar, 238 Victoria Street, North Melbourne

For the first time in 10 years, Victor Stranges will be performing with a new line up of The Methinks at The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar with Man City Sirens and The Reasons.

Victor Stranges & The Methinks will be playing songs from the albums, Heading Back To You (2002) and Hello Me To You (2009). The evening promises to be a great line up of Melbourne rock 'n' roll on the Cup Eve long weekend.

"Victor Stranges is a world class songwriter and one of the most able multi-instrumentalists you're likely to come across. Carrying the flame of literate, melodic post-punk artists to cherish from Elvis Costello down. He sings it like he means it." DC Cardwell

"Strangely enough, he sounds more like he began as a lounge singer, pulled from a musical at a young age and indoctrinated into a punk lifestyle of hard guitars and dark clubs." Brad McNaughton, Rip It Up (Adelaide)

"Hello Me To You, it's great." Edwyn Collins

Also appearing are Man City Sirens who play polyphonic rock music: opera meets the punky popular. The Reasons are a new outfit and can be best described as The Monkees meets The Velvet Underground fighting over a car parking spot in Melbourne.

Tickets $10 each at the door on the night.

Doors open 8:00pm for an 8:30pm start.

Everyday I Write The Hook...Victor Stranges Plays The Elvis Costello Songbook with Mike Dupp

 —  —

The Drunken Poet, 65 Peel Street, West Melbourne

Victor will be joined by piano extraordinaire, Mike Dupp, for an evening of Elvis Costello hits and obscurities. The performance is not a costume changing tribute show, rather an affirmation of Stranges' love for the songs of Costello.

The acoustic show draws from Costello's first twenty 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.
