Fresh from making noise with the likes of Agency, Oranges and Tangents, Canberra’s own Shoeb Ahmad returns to the solo stage with a six-piece band to launch “mask-ed”, their first solo release since 2011’s Watch/Illuminate. A minimalist soul trip with lush harmonies and slow grooves, “mask-ed” narrates the struggles of true identity and secrets kept around gender expression.
The evening will also feature sets by Wives and Naif (ex-Hannahband), preceded by a panel moderated by Chiara Grassia (Girls Rock! Canberra) that discusses the role of personal identity in creative practice.
