Event Details

Jody Stephens is the sole surviving member of iconic early '70s power pop legends BIG STAR, and the only man other than Alex Chilton to play on all three of their peerless original albums. He was also a member of pioneering alt-country supergroup Golden Smog, alongside members of Wilco and the Jayhawks.

Luther Russell is an acclaimed singer/songwriter and producer (Richmond Fontaine amongst others) who formed his first band as a teenager with Jacob Dylan (before the son of Bob formed the Wallflowers).  Luther has made a handful of solo records, having first come to attention as a member of The Freewheelers in the '90s, during which time his songs were described as having "the appeal and personality of those by Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson".

Together, Jody Stephens and Luther Russell are THOSE PRETTY WRONGS, who combine the lyrical and soulful harmony and jangle of both Big Star and classic '90s alt-country with the sort of folky, summery feeling that will warm anyone.

Touring Australia on the back of their new album Holiday Camp, THOSE PRETTY WRONGS will be joined by some special friends and perform their own gorgeous material as well as some classic BIG STAR.
