BLUEJUICE ‘Ain’t Telling The Truth’ Tour
+ The Holidays
KATOOMBA RSL CLUB
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia
Bluejuice are dainty fellows. They know how to set a dining table, and they know the call of a rainbow lorikeet when they hear one. They’re too polite to take the last hors d’oeuvre, and they walk on the outside of a footpath to protect their lady-friends from a vehicular drenching on a rainy day. Bluejuice are your seats down, coats around, and doors open type of guys.
It’s a shame then that these suggestions of good manners boil away to nothing in the face of a deep-seated psychological need to lie. They lie to their grandmothers. They lie to their Chihuahuas. They lie to their manager about writing relevant press releases.
Bluejuice’s new single Ain’t Telling The Truth is an homage to their passion for the lie. The only thing truthful about the song is the title that it ain’t telling the truth. It’s one of those songs with a descriptive title (much like Stevie Winwood’s Valerie was most likely about someone named Valerie). It is the second single from their second album Head Of The Hawk.
But the real truth is that the single follows the giant success of ‘Broken Leg’ which picked up an ARIA nomination for ‘Breakthrough Song of the Year’ and hit the #5 slot on the world’s biggest music poll ‘Triple J’s Hottest 100’. The video scored ‘Video of the Year’ nods from Rage, Myspace and iTunes and it has sold more than a whopping 50,000 copies and still going strong.
And from March 31st through to until May 9th the band will take that mix of manners and miss-truths and The Holidays on the road with the “Ain’t Telling The Truth Tour” proudly presented by Nova, Video Hits, and Myspace.
Doors Open 8:30pm. Show Starts 9pm.
