1980s Oz pop juggernaut and one of the finest exponents of the Keytar to ever grace a stage, Pseudo Echo are coming to rock Wallsend this year.
Yep, that’s right, frontman Brian Canham and the rest of the Funky Town bunch will be hitting the Mezz Bar at Wallsend Diggers on Saturday 7 March.
The show will come hot on the heels of the band’s support slot with a-ha and Rick Astley at Bimbadgen Estate in February so you can expect a well-oiled Pseudo Echo machine to take to the Mezz Bar stage.
In fact, anyone who was lucky enough to catch the band’s bravura turn at last year’s Live at the Foreshore festival can attest to the fact that these guys can still well and truly cut the musical mustard in the live arena.
Just like that set, punters at the Mezz Bar show can expect a high-energy, all-killer-no-filler set of classics like Listening, A Beat For You, Don’t Go and Love and Adventure.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Pseudo Echo set without a rendition of their classic 1988 version of the Lipps Inc dancefloor filler Funky Town.
Well, word on the street is that the show will feature an extended ‘mega-mix’ version of the track with a few extra surprises thrown in for good measure.
If that wasn’t enough, ex-pat Novocastrian DJ Maynard (who as Maynard F# Crabbes trod local boards in the iconic comedy troupe The Castanet Club and helped Triple J cement its place as THE national youth broadcaster) will be opening proceedings, spinning a meticulously curated selection of ’80s classics to well and truly get the party started.
Catch Pseudo Echo at The Mezz Bar on Saturday 7 March. Head here for tickets.
