Live Review: Kirin J Callinan + Standish/Carlyon + Jonny Telafone - Northcote Social Club, Melbourne (04.07.13)

Kirin J Callinan's reputation for being provocative and subversive precedes him. Whether it be his past fetish for wearing dresses on stage, his stirring, experimental, guitar sound scapes, the Sugar Mountain Festival fiasco, or his disturbing film clip for “Way To War”; Callinan knows how to generate a buzz, piquing the curiosity of punters that come to his shows. Here on his national Embracism album tour, the punters have packed the confines of the Northcote Social Club, eager to see what Callinan has in store for them.
