With Special Guest Jen Cloher
Australian rock royalty, Spiderbait have recently made a triumphant return, releasing a new album for the first time in almost a decade. Though the musical landscape has changed quite significantly since the last time they released a studio album, the band’s new self-titled release contains a warm nostalgic yet fresh quality. The album remains true to their rock heritage mixed with sweet sounds, double kicks and gritty riffs.
Spiderbait’s illustrious career has produced five Top 20 albums, 19 ARIA Nominations and two ARIA awards. They were the first band to make it to the #1 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100 for their pulsating guitar anthem Buy Me A Pony and their cover of Black Betty scored them a #1 single on the ARIA chart and a Top 20 single in the US. The band are pleased to be supporting Zoos Victoria in their fight against wildlife extinction and performing at this year’s Zoo Twilights series.
After graduating from acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, Jen Cloher decided to pursue a career in music. This performance will see Jen perform tracks from across her career - songs that have earned her a reputation as a strong, emotionally charged musician at the top of her game.
