Yukon Blonde confirm dates for Sydney and Melbourne alongside BIGSOUND showcase in September!

Canadians Yukon Blonde will be making their Australian return for BIGSOUND this year and today have confirmed two exclusive headline shows for Melbourne and Sydney to boot! Last catching up with them at SXSW, Jeff Innes had told us of their desire to make it back to Australia, a country they've shared a solid bond with over the years. We're excited to have them back so soon (relatively) after our last chat and even more, we're stoked that more people are going to be able to see them perform at more dates outside their already confirmed Brisbane showcase in September!
