Were back like a boomerang, lead singer Emily Lubitz said. Its exciting to return to Darwin. For the southern five-piece the Top End is where they cut their teeth years ago. Back when they were only a trio, Tinpan Orange played six gigs a week in Darwin and busked at Mindil Markets. Darwin gave birth to us, Lubitz said. We were escaping the Southern winter and actually making money, which for a band from down south was amazing and unexpected, so Darwin is very close to our hearts. Since then Tinpan Orange has performed across the country and overseas and also has four studio albums under its belt. Joining the original line -up of Emily and Jesse Lubitz and Alex Burkoy is Daniel Farrugia and The Cat Empires Harry Angus. The Rails gig will be one of the last stops on their national tour for the new album Over The Sun. Things have changed for the six-foot-tall red-headed vocalist with the arrival of son Louis. Now a mother and a lead singer, Lubitz has a new perspective on life. The new release reflects this change, with songs about looking back and remembering the past. Thrown into the mix is a cheeky cover of ABC childrens show Round The Twist. It is something audi ences get a buzz out of, Lubitz said. Its a nostalgia thing. From busking barefoot to touring the country, Tinpan Orange has experienced a steady growth that sees them in 2012 receiving great acclaim. This Sunday they will bring it all back to where it kicked off, in front of a crowd of Territorians. Tinpan Orange, Darwin Railway Club, Sunday at 7pm. Tickets: $30 Raising theDead in aHappy place PUNK band Dead is ready to rock the Happy Yess tomorrow night. The duo from down south is bringing its no-holds-barred brand of music to Darwin. One half of Dead, known as Jem, said the group aims to leave everything on stage when they perform. If we have any energy left then its a waste, he said. Afterwards Im completely f***ed. Jem and bandmate Jace are from the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick where Jem runs the independent record label We Empty Rooms. The one-man operation, with occasional help from friends, personally packages all releases on the label. The label distributes albums mostly from bands Jem is in. The Dead has just released its sophomore album Idiots, a follow up to its debut Thundaaaaah!. When I first started in music I didnt think to ask labels to put out my music, I just did it myself Jem said. The loud underground music Dead produces isnt aiming for mainstream success. Its not especially popular, but its always loud. Dead at Happy Yess tomorrow night, 9pm. Tickets: $10. Wyvills Marbles evokes laughter and tears on familys tricky journey THEATREREVIEW Tom Paulings performance has such vitality By award-winning playwright Ingle Knight of Kate Wyvills Marbles at Browns Mart KATE Wyvills loving family portrait of three sisters reunited for their fathers birthday is excruciatingly familiar. The suffocating patterns of behaviour you can never quite break, outworn rituals you cling to for fear of losing the intimacy they once implied, and old resentments you thought youd grown out of. Played out against set designer Kris Birds elegant suspended quadrilaterals, the struggle of the daughters for the love of a father already lost to them is hilarious and heart-rending. Each of these all-too-human women is so well portrayed that their similarities and radical dif ferences are equally striking and so deeply flawed that you would hesitate to trust any of them with keeping the dreadful promise they made to the old man before he lost his marbles. But perhaps thats because Tom Paulings performance has such vitality that its sometimes difficult to spot the misery theyre supposed to be putting him out of. Wyvill is on record as a supporter of euthanasia. She smuggles in the bitter pill about euthanasia under a splendid cargo of comedy and tears. Highly recommended. Marbles is playing at Browns Mart Theatre until November 30.
