Join The Smart Folk for a very special performance from the comfort of your socially distant couch, in your socially distant homes, with anywhere up to 5 of your socially distant “nearest” and dearest.

It’s our first show since January when everything went to hell in a hand basket.

Indie-psych-mod band from Sydney singing songs and telling tales of the city and the suburbs…
The Smart Folk formed in 2013 when two members of Sydney mod-revival band The Mayday Dreamers embarked on a different musical path as an acoustic duo. It was only ever meant to be a one-off show playing acoustic mod and folk classics, but over the last five years The Smart Folk has evolved into an original four piece electric combo, incorporating mod, psych, and power pop into their own unique sixties-inspired sound.
Pete Kowal – vocals & guitars
Chris Newton – vocals, guitars, shoebourine
Keith Claringbold – bass
Pete “Feej” Iacono – drums, percussion
“There’s no hiding the mod influence on this six-track CD from a bunch of Sydney veterans. It’s beat pop with a bright disposition that sometimes sounds like Paul Weller on happy pills.”
– The Barman, I-94 Bar
“Overall, this is a great EP. The band knows how to write a tune that tips a hat to pop/rock bands from the ’60s.”
– Divide & Conquer online zine
“I like it. It sounds like XTC…”
– Matthew J. Tow, The Lovetones
