Brisbane Festival in association with The Tivoli presents

The Aints play The Saints '73-'78


27 Sept | The Tivoli



Australian Premiere

"Rock music in the seventies was changed by three bands—the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints." Bob Geldof

On the 40th anniversary of the release of The Saints’ classic album ‘(I’m) Stranded’, founding member, guitarist and songwriter Ed Kuepper revisits the material performed by the Australian proto-punk pioneers.

Originally spawned in the early nineties, The Aints sought to bring justice to the sound and attitude of the original Brisbane-based band, capturing their energy and awesome onstage presence.

Alongside bassist Peter Oxley (Sunnyboys), drummer Paul Larson (The Celibate Rifles), keyboardist Alister Spence and a guest brass section, The Aints 2.0 will perform songs that spanned their three ground-breaking albums: the proto-punk classic ‘(I’m) Stranded’ (1977), the hugely influential ‘Eternally Yours’ (1978), and the genre-defying ‘Prehistoric Sounds’ (1978).

Strictly for audiences 18+ years.
