Listen to the music which shaped a generation
 
For a man so surely shrouded in mystery, Sixto Rodriguez has been making a whole lot of appearances lately after his 30 year sojourn from the fame-scene. His next tour brings him to Brisbane where fans of his folk rock and often drug-referencing music can bliss out to songs from his original albums as well as new material.

Famous for his first album, Cold Fact, Rodriguez's music was adored in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa but it took 30 years out of the spotlight until he was recognised by the rest of the world. After Sundance film, Searching for Sugarman, about two South African fans scouring the globe as they investigated the rumours of his death was released in cinemas, there was a complete resurgence in the popularity of the music of Rodriguez and he has resurfaced to great acclaim.

This concert will reawaken your love of the man who wrote songs such as Sugar Man, Hate Street Dialogue and Can't Get Away; mind-bending and thought provoking music of their time in an era of psychedelic folk.
