After playing a string of sold out shows in 2010, Swedish songwriter Kristian Matsson (aka The Tallest Man on Earth) is now making his first ever appearance in Canberra. The talented 29-year-old first made himself known back in 2006 after an incredibly successful tour of the USA with Bon Iver. He remained one of those ‘talked about’ artists who kept himself just a little under the radar, completely DIY, yet vigorously touring and building his loyal fan base. In 2010 he signed with US label Dead Oceans and has since released his sophomore album, The Wild Hunt, and a fantastic EP. (Check the review on the BMA website.) The Tallest Man is a genuinely magnetic presence on stage, even if he’s only 5’8”. 8pm. $45 + bf through Moshtix.
