Tours: Surf City, Laura Imbruglia, Betty Airs, Ben Kweller and Delta Spirit

Prediction #1: Surf City's long awaited debut album Kudos (due out in September via Pop Frenzy) is gonna rock the skirts off EVERYONE. Mark our words. Whatever that's worth, right?

To get pussy's wet for the album, the New Zealand psych-punkers will be heading out on a mini-national tour, where attendance is absolutely essential if you want to squeeze into those "told you so" pants in about 6 months time.

Saturday, September 4
Frankly! Festival, Brisbane
w/ Xiu Xiu, High Places, Fabulous Diamonds and more

There's a lovely poster as well by those top shelf cunts - We Buy Your Kids.

Prediction #2: the final week of Laura Imbruglia's schizophrenic "all sorts" residency at the Exclesior (featuring 'Karaoke Laura') will certainty be the best week.

BUT... don't let that put you off the other weeks. This week she'll be doing 'Country Laura', assisted by local alt-country vets The Exiles.

Wednesday, August 4: Solo Laura
W/ Sarah from theredsunband

I KNOW.. we should have talked about this week, aye!

Wednesday, August 25: Karaoke Laura
From Laura - "I'm hiring a karaoke machine so I can show you how fun karaoke is. I'll sing some Salt n Pepa, YOU'LL sing some Bon Jovi! Interactive gig! Fun!!! No supports. All karaoke all night!!!" Amazing.

Ms Imbruglia will also be supporting Eels at all three shows on their upcoming East Coast tour, which kicks off this Friday in Brisbane.

Prediction #3: THE BETTY AIRS WILL FERTILIZE YOUR WHOMB WITH MUSICAL LOVE!

It's not really a "tour" per say, BUT one of Sydney's finest up-n-cumers, Betty Airs, will be playing TWO shows this weekend - supporting The Paper Scissors and Ernest Ellis at Spectrum's 6th birthday party on Friday AND headlining a super awesome show at the Roxbury Hotel at Glebe on Sunday.

The Roxbury show will also double as the Sydney launch show for two of Canberra's finest new bands - TV Colours and Assassins 88 - who are releasing a split 7" via Dream Damage sometime "very very soon".

Prediction #4: Benji Kweller will lose all of the money he makes on this tour in a ruthless all-night game of Texas Hold'em with the Delta Spirit lads after the Melbourne show. Dem the breaks, kid.

Last (and definitely least), it's just been announced that Benjamin Kweller and the Delta Spirit will be doing a double-headline national tour in October.

Sunday, October 3: The Factory, Sydney
Tuesday, October 5: Hi-Fi Bar, Brisbane
Wednesday, October 6: Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne
