After sell-out album launches across the country in July and August, The Blackeyed Susans will play their annual Christmas shows in Melbourne at the Caravan Music Club on Friday 15 December and the Spotted Mallard on Saturday 16 December, plus a kid-friendly matinee show on Sunday 17 December.
This will be the 9th year The Susans have dusted off the tinsel and fired up the Christmas lights, for what has now become a Melbourne tradition. As usual they’ll be a smorgasbord of Christmas related songs, including choice cuts from their latest album and the best of their extensive back catalogue.
2017 has been a big year for The Blackeyed Susans, with the latest album Close Your Eyes and See getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike and a successful national tour to boot. So, come help The Susans cap off a great year and celebrate the birth of little baby Jesus in style this Christmas!

The Blackeyed Susans have built a reputation for their moody romanticism and op-shop stylings. Declared national treasures by Rolling Stone magazine, they have toured the world, played with the likes of Johnny Cash and Leonard Cohen and released numerous albums of occasional beauty (including a retrospective box set entitled ‘Reveal Yourself’ in 2009 charting the band’s illustrious history). Boasting members of The Cruel Sea, Dirty Three, The Triffids, The Jackson Code, Augie March, The Drones and Hungry Ghosts, the group’s credits read like a who’s who of Australian alternative music.
Close Your Eyes and See (released March 2017) is the band’s 7th studio album and their first collection of new material in over ten years.
