Cass McCombs Laneway Festival 2014 Sideshows have been announced, with the celebrated singer-songwriter playing exclusive headline shows to complement his appearance atthe indie boutique festival next February.

Following on from Laneway announcing its own set of sideshows, featuring Chvrches, King Krule, and Savages, Cass McCombs now joins the list.

Mistletone presents two intimate Laneway sideshows by one of the more golden singer-songwriters of our time, Cass McCombs with full band.

Cass McCombs has traversed many borders, literally and figuratively, since his great 2003 debut Not The Way. Americana, bedroom pop, folk and chamber music have variously held the interest of the Baltimore native, but compelling storytelling and occasional flashes of humour are the common thread here.

McCombs’ 2011 twin releases, Humour Risk and Wit’s End (both released on Domino), highlights amongst a catalogue peppered with brilliance. His new double album for Domino Records, Big Wheel and Others, is a sprawling, visionary album that may just be his best yet, further proof of his status as one of his generation’s most visionary songwriters – as uncompromising, radical and counter-cultural as any other artist working today.

McCombs and his talented band will play Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club in January with Ross McLennan, before hitting Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory in February with support from Melodie Nelson.
