'Throttle' at Shadow Electric - Win a Double Pass

Published February 19th 2015

The Shadow Electric is playing host to a fantastic new event - Throttle - on Saturday 28th of February and Saturday 7th of March 2015.

Proudly presented by Wander Productions and Cop My Wallop, this unique show is created and performed by renown drummer Ashley Davies.

As one half of Matt Walker and Ashley Davies, he has won an ARIA award and opened for the likes of Bob Dylan and Patti Smith, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Cruel Sea, Gomez, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Cowboy Junkies, ZZ Top, Cold Chisel and Junior Brown.

Davies has also recorded, toured, and played live with some of Australia's great and well-known artists, including Jeff Lang, Chris Whitley, The Waifs, Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil), Lisa Miller, Dave Larkins (Dallas Crane), Chris Wilson and The Crown of Thorns, The Backsliders.

With 'Throttle', Cop My Wallop, aka Davies wanted to create an innovative show that offers a new and exciting live music experience for the audience.

Set to infectious tracks off "Muscle Drum Music " Volumes 1 and 2, 'Throttle' is a one of a kind combination of spectacular drum beats and amazing visuals.

Audiences can expect a foot stomping ride, accompanied by projected images of car racing, rocket launches, roller coasters, dance footage, a touch of comedy and anything in between.

Davies has a life-long love of theatrical shows that push boundaries and whilst conceiving the live shows for the critically acclaimed "Muscle Drum Music" albums, he collaborated with a visual / video choreographer and lighting artist. The result is 'Throttle', which sees one man on a drum kit playing to cranking, toe tapping, percussive overloaded music.

"It is a high octane thrilling rhythmic musical adventure built on driving drum grooves and a visual kaleidoscopic extravaganza."

Tickets for this event are now on sale. There will be two shows only: Saturday 28th of February and Saturday 7th of March 2015 at 7pm. General Admission tickets are priced $22.50.
