Waxahatchee Announces Full Band Oz Tour

Waxahatchee is heading back to Australia in February, and this time she’s bringing her five-piece band with her.

The Philadelphia-based songwriter – known to her mates as Katie Crutchfield – made her first trip down under in July for two intimate solo shows, but will give fans the full Waxahatchee live treatment when she plays Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Wednesday 17 February and Melbourne’s Howler on Thursday 18 February.

It’s been a breakout year for Waxahatchee: her third album Ivy Tripp was released to universal acclaim in April (“reminiscent of the best ’90s indie rock”, “Cat Power for the next generation”, etc), while performances at festivals such as South By Southwest, Pitchfork Music Festival and Austin City Limits won her more raves.

Tickets to both shows are on sale now.
