Press Release:

The Big Day Out presents a Big Night In with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ghost Wave and She’s So Rad at the King’s Arms on Thursday 19 January.

Three of the outstanding indie acts of 2011 gather forces at Auckland’s home of live alternative music for one big night of party starting action for the 2012 Big Day Out. Unknown Mortal Orchestra capped off an eventful 2011 by cropping up all over Pitchfork’s ‘best of the year’ lists and recruiting a new drummer for their shows downunder.

And with Kody Neilson being the one to answer brother Ruban’s call to join up, it’s been a revelation to see the two Mint Chicks main men locked together in playing the furious psychedelic pop jamsthat made UMO one of the bands of 2011 anywhere.

They’re joined on the bill by the two new bands grabbing ears on the Auckland scene last year – Ghost Wave and She’s So Rad. Both groups released debut EPs that haunted the top of the alternative charts for months and promise many big things for 2012. Warm up for the Big Day Out alongside UMO, Ghost Wave and She’s So Rad at the Kings Arms, Thursday 19 January.

Tickets on sale now from undertheradar.co.nz and Real Groovy.
