Astral People are proud to present an evening of nightclub luxury with LA’s finest purveyors of quality, 100% Silk. Founded by Amanda Brown (LA Vampires/Not Not Fun Records) in 2011, the label has formed a valuable mystique in sound, introducing the likes of Ital, Fort Romeau, Maria Minerva and Jonas Reinhardt to the world. Their lush, inquisitive catalogue is unlike any other label right now, indicative of the immersion between mind and body (whilst never keeping the dancefloor at bay).
There are clear limitations to playing live as a two piece band. The set-up has seen acts like the White Stripes and Mess Hall rely on increasingly complex instrumentation. This approach had its own limitations with both acts eventually relying on additional live members to perform the increasingly complex music that they created in the studio. Other acts have placed an increased reliance on pre-recorded backing tracks to flesh out their songs.

The Sydney component of The Preatures Shaking Hands EP tour hit Goodgod Small Club on Friday 26th October, with promises from the band of lots of hand shakes.
Goodgod Small Club is packed early on and it's great to see people watching the support acts. Even when the support act is Palms, who seem to be supporting everyone in Sydney. It's the fourth time I've seen them this year and to their credit they are improving as a live act.
