Shows

  • 2012

    Sep 24

    Melbourne, AU | 7:30pm

    The Jane Austen Argument are unleashing their unique mix of high drama, fierce wit and soaring harmonies this September, with a month-long residency every Monday at The Toff in Town. After touring with punk-cabaret legends The Dresden Dolls, a triumphant Adelaide Fringe Festival season and releasing their debut record 'Somewhere Under The Rainbow' to widespread acclaim, each week in September they will be joined by different special guests as they unveil brand new material, as well as rearranged originals and left of centre covers. Throughout this residency, founding members Tom Dickins and Jen Kingwell will be moving through acoustic duo sets to their extended band line-up complementing the original musical powerhouse of keys, ukuleles and vocals. The Jane Austen Argument are not exactly known for their predictability onstage, so expect the outrageously unexpected as they up the ante each week - culminating in their Under The Rainbow - Spectacular! Spectacular! theatrical tour de fucking force at this year's Melbourne Fringe Festival. Tickets $10.00 + BF on sale from Moshtix - phone: 1300 GET TIX (438 849), on-line: www.moshtix.com.au or Moshtix outlets including Polyester (City) / $15.00 Concession / $18.00 Full on door. Doors 7.30pm. thejaneaustenargument.net www.facebook.com/events/504142426267191/
