Huge Oz act Bliss N Eso to play Revelstoke

Sydney-based trio tour new album Circus in the Sky to Aussie troops in Afghanistan then straight to B.C., including Revelstoke show

The Times Review tried to line up an interview with Aussie hip hop superstars Bliss n Eso last week, but their media handlers said the pair didn’t have access to a phone. We didn’t really get the kind of cryptic messaging until this photo popped up on their Facebook page. The Sydney-based rap duo were on a mission to the Middle East to perform for Aussie troops there, and were under a secrecy order. From the deserts of Afghanistan, they’ll head to B.C. for a tour, including a stop at Traverse on Thursday, Sept. 19. These guys are a big deal Down Under, winning national awards and playing stadium shows, so expect a ratchet party atmosphere and a big turnout from Revelstoke’s growing Oz contingent. I hope to catch up with the boys this week, but I thought I should warn you to get tickets early.
