musical thirst of White Stripes frontman Jack White.
In his latest incarnation with The Dead Weather,
White teams up with members of The Kills, Queens
of the Stone Age and his other band, The Racon-
teurs, for a bluesy psyche-rock explosion.

pop and move-your-feet melodies. Perth Concert Hall, March 28, bocsticketing.com.au.

through bittersweet vocals and delicately arranged
guitar, harmonica and ukulele.

Get a blast from the recent past with
10cc, the band that shot to fame with

reformed UK outfit are heading
to Perth for an evening of soft rock.

There's no aphrodisiac like The Whitlams.
Thanks to the lyrical finesse of frontman Tim
Freedman, their songs could render even the
most ordinary subject matter romantic. Grab
your partner (or just yourself) and head along
to these sentimental shows.
Mandurah Performing Arts Centre,
Mundaring Weir Hotel, March 26-27,
DINOSAUR JR Those who wore Doc Martens and flannelette in the 90s owe a debt of gratitude to Dinosaur Jr. After
forming in 1984, they took the first heavy guitar strokes towards a grunge style that would explode the following decade. Pop in
some earplugs and experience this blistering music phenomenon. Rosemount Hotel, March 12, tickets.oztix.com.au.
