Kirin J Callinan released Bravado, his second full-length album in June to rave reviews.

We are excited to announce new US tour dates to support the album. He’ll be playing Chicago, Boston, NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles starting on August 27th. Then dates in UK, France, Germany and Benelux. Don’t miss his legendary and provocative performances.
These dates follow sold out shows across Australia “The unmistakable figure of Kirin J Callinan arrived, taking the audience from the start to the final parting clang guitar. Like Bowie taking his stage cues from Lindsay Kemp, Callinan has created a distinct stage manner of gestures, moves, and facial expressions that run the gamut from knowing sleaze to innocent glee. Many of the new album tracks worked even better live, showing at the heart it's the strength of writing that holds everything together’ The Music
On Bravado, he has added euphoric EDM and unabashed humanity to his circa 2017 arsenal, delivering a defiantly exuberant second album! Guests on the album include Connan Mockasin, The Finn Family (Neil, Liam etc), Weyes Blood, Owen Pallet, MacDemarco and more.

His debut full-length album, Embracism, was released by Terrible Records three years ago, in July of 2013. Later this year, he will co-star in the upcoming second season of the critically acclaimed & Acadamey Award winning Jane Campion drama Top Of The Lake, due for release this Fall. He also recently started another band with hit songwriter Martin Johnson called The Night Game, and they are currently opening for John Mayer.

"one of the most addictive and affecting pop records of the year" - the Fader

“Kirin J Callinan never met a left turn he didn’t like. The Australian musician’s new album Bravado is visceral, bizarro, chaotic-neutral experimental pop, and love it or hate it, it’s one of the most unusual records you’re likely to hear this season.” – Spin

“With guest spots from Neil Finn and Jimmy Barnes, Callinan is no novelty act – and his second album is as disparate, provocative and perverse as ever.” – the Guardian

“one of this year's most colorfully eccentric pop records”- The Needle Drop
Bernardino
Bernardino
Bernardino Femminielli works in media including music, performance, poetry and film under the guise of a hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, transgression, danger and pleasure-- a detached crooner deep within a distopian discotheque. Narrating in French and Spanish, from classical arrangements to brutal Italo-disco, from heavy cosmic drone to mutant industrial: his sonic ventures reflect his adopted personas. His lyrics explore an imagined illicit paradise full of excess, drugs, bars, pleasure, darkness and companionship. Much of his poetry is arranged using the cut-up technique and is composed similarly to works of transgressive fiction. On stage, the confrontational yet intensely vulnerable performer explores the rich and dark energy of French and German cabaret-- emphasizing the "total" performance where poetry, music, film, and dance coalesce.

Bernardino Femminielli performs as a solo act but is often joined on stage by musicians Pierre Guerineau and Asael Robataille from Montreal electronic projects Essaie Pas and Bataille Solaire, as well as with his side project Femminielli Noir (Jesse Osborne-Lanthier) and is a long time collaborator with Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches).
