ONSTAGE: THE SERIES – Big Scary (Early Session)

ONSTAGE: THE SERIES will see both fans and artists, on the iconic Palais Theatre stage together for a limited run of shows backdropped by the expansive, beautiful art deco auditorium.

Having just released their globally acclaimed sixth studio album, Melbourne two-piece Big Scary will take to the stage on Friday 6 Jan. The duo began life strumming and drumming in suburban living rooms, now 15 years later, Tom Iansek and Jo Syme are recognised as one of Australian music’s most respected and restlessly innovative indie partnerships. Together, the duo has earned several ARIA and J Award nominations, Hottest 100 entries, two ARIA Top 10 albums, won AIR’s Best Pop Album, and the prestigious Australian Music Prize. They’ve played countless sold-out tours and festivals, as well as cultivated a dedicated following and Pieater – the proudly artist-led indie label. It’s not a style or a particular sound that defines Big Scary, but rather the dynamic synergy between Tom and Jo, and it is this connection that served as inspiration for a great creative outpouring that brought forth both 2021’s ‘Daisy’ and now new LP ‘Me and You’.
