2017 marks ten long years since The Snowdroppers first got together in a room to see if they could learn a handful of covers to play at a burlesque variety show … London, Pauly K, Cougar Jones and Johnny Wishbone – with no idea that it would dominate their lives for the next decade.
They’ve seen a lot of things come and go over the years – three albums and an EP, countless tours, festivals and support slots around Australia, several overseas trips, broken bones, more long drives and airport lines than you can shake a large Big Mac meal at, and have somehow managed to come out the other side sane and still kicking.
It’s this kind of milestone that tends to make a band look back with pride on all their accomplishments, thankful of all they’ve been able to experience and look towards the next ten years with renewed purpose and vigour! … Not The Snowdroppers though, they’re sick of it and are going to OFFICIALLY CALL IT QUITS after one last run of shows. This is it folks, they’re hanging up the suspenders, burning the banjo and putting London back in the cabinet!
To celebrate their tenth anniversary and say farewell, they’ll be playing Too Late to Pray in full and a selection of our other favourites. They’ll even be releasing a very limited number of ‘Too Late to Pray’ 12″ vinyls.
Catch them kick off the tour in Canberra at Transit Bar on Saturday October 21, with special guests The Barron Spinsters + Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers. Secure your tickets and limited edition vinyl through Moshtix.
