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.
