Pretty Strangers spent the latter half of the noughties and the early part of whatever-this-decade's-called spreading their soaring indie-pop stylings across Melbourne's band rooms, garnering a cult following before reluctantly calling it a day.

But now the Strangers are reuniting for one last stand before geographic forces tear them apart...again. Their songs are generally propelled by a perpetual-motion rhythm section, layered thick with dueling guitar hooks, and tinged with theatrical ennui. Like a clumsy teenage lover, they fumble their way towards a fleeting moment of ecstasy, before inevitably collapsing into a primordial wash of feedback.

They expect to be thoroughly outclassed by Canberra legends Nic Cage and the Bad Seats, the rock'em, sock'em stylings of Adventure Sunday, and acoustic chanteuse Jamie Leone. As a show of appreciation for how the Phoenix bar made Canberra feel like home to one Stranger, Pretty Strangers will be donating their receipts for the show and CD sales to the Save The Phoenix fund.
