The professionally-filmed livestream will be aired from 9.30pm AEDT on December 18, and will see the Melbourne punks performing songs from their latest album ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ live for the first time. Tickets for the Bandcamp-hosted livestream are available here.
To coincide with the announcement, the band have shared a video for previously-released track ‘Sleep Paralysis’, directed and edited by drummer Aidan McDonald. Watch that below:
“Now, we know what you’re thinking. ‘Live stream? Isn’t that just what bands you wouldn’t go see anyway playing acoustic guitars in their bedroom?’ Well, with this show you’ve got the PF Guarantee of no acoustic guitars and entertainment above and beyond anything else you’ll see online,” commented the band.
“This will be the greatest live stream performance of all time and is guaranteed to bring the entire concept of live performances, streamed or otherwise, into complete disrepute.”
Speaking to NME earlier this year, frontman Chris Penney discussed the band’s creative approach, saying he considers Private Function “like an art collective before a band”.
“If you can start digging the well of ideas which doesn’t end, you can come up with anything, go on forever. But every song is already written, especially in rock ’n’ roll. Music is absolutely the last thing we think about in the band.”
