Legendary Adelaide pop punk band Exploding White Mice are getting back together for the first time since ’99, bringing their notoriously anarchic live act to the ADL Film Festival for “Vive Le Punk”.
They’ll be joined on stage by some the the premiere bands of Radelaide’s current punk crop for one gig at The Producers Hotel on Thursday, October 12.
ADL Film Fest’s Amanda Duthie said, “At ADL Film Fest we are imploding with excitement to have Exploding White Mice back together for a one-off Vive Le Punk event. South Australia is such an epicentre for invention and creativity and so much amazing music has originated here including one of Australia’s major punk outfits.”
Today also sees our first taste of the upcoming 2017 ADLFF program, with a selection of highlights being released. Punters heading along to the festival’s new home at the GU Film House Hindly Street can look forward to a tasty range of sensational films, including the world premiere of Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling’s zombie tearjerker, Cargo, starring Martin Freeman and David Gulpilil; the Australian premiere of Warwick Thonton’s Sweet Country, an Australian period Western set on the Northern Territory border; and the searing Indigenous documentary, After the Apology, which looks at the practice of child removal from Aboriginal families following Kevin Rudd’s landmark apology the the stolen generations in 2008.
Finally, there’s the new work from Adelaide’s Closer Productions, F*!#ing Adelaide, which sees Pamela Rabe, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, and Kate Box star in a comedy drama told from six different perspectives of a family who reunite in Adelaide when mum plans to sell the family home.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, with the full program being launched on August 29. For more info, hit up the official site.
