The Dirty Skirts Return to The Independent Armchair Theatre for a Thrilling Performance Following the Release of “Radiant Clouds” EP
South Africa’s beloved indie rock band, The Dirty Skirts, are set to ignite the stage at The Independent Armchair Theatre in a highly anticipated performance on the 9th of December. This marks a triumphant return to the venue where they initially captivated audiences and cultivated their early following.
The excitement surrounding the event is palpable, coming hot on the heels of the band’s latest EP, “Radiant Clouds.” This release showcases The Dirty Skirts’ signature blend of infectious energy, compelling lyrics, and masterful musicianship. Fans can expect a night of electrifying performances, featuring both classic hits and fresh tracks from the EP.
The Dirty Skirts have an illustrious musical journey that has seen them rise to prominence with multiple albums, including standout tracks like “Homewrecker,” “Daddy Don’t Disco,” “Feeling the Pressure,” and “Strike the Match.” The band’s trajectory reached new heights with the South African Music Award (SAMA) winning album “Lost in the Fall,” leading to opportunities to open for international giants such as Oasis, Snow Patrol, Evanescence, Three Doors Down, Billy Talent, and Staind. The band has even graced stages in the UK and USA, captivating audiences at the prestigious SXSW festival.
The upcoming performance at The Independent Armchair Theatre will feature The Dirty Skirts’ original lineup, comprising Jeremy de Tolly on vocals and guitar, David Moffatt on guitar, Maurice Paliaga on bass, and Mark De Menezes on drums. Audiences can anticipate a high-octane live show that not only revisits the band’s earlier hits but also introduces tracks from “Radiant Clouds” and offers a sneak peek into the upcoming 2024 EP, scheduled for release in April 2024.
Adding an extra layer of excitement to the night, the band will be joined by a Special Guest—none other than their former manager, now turned DJ, Candice Heyns. Heyns will set the tone with a DJ set, adding another dimension to the evening’s festivities.
