Snap Scene: A Place To Bury Strangers (APTBS) – Cherry Bar, Melbourne – 27th Feb 2019

Formed in 2003 when Oliver Ackermann offered to drum for a friend’s band but by the end of the first practice Ackermann had switched to guitar and vocals and APTBS was born.

Quickly garnering acclaim from their stunning performances with Brian Jonestown Massacre, it has been the band’s increasingly chaotic live performances that built their legion of fans and seen them applauded as the revival of “the ominous, feedback-drenched drones of the 1980s” The New York Times.

Sinewy, slightly sinister APTBS suck you in with their paranoid pop only to be blow you away again by the gate-crashing melodies and the sputtering percussion.
