The Jane Austen Argument

Let's transcend cosmetics and beauty for a minute, and just let me babble on about this awesome f@$king band from Australia for a moment. They are the Jane Austen Argument (@theJAargument on the Twitter). Forgive me for Stealing from their website (http://thejaneaustenargument.net) but, their Bio describes them perfectly
               "The Jane Austen Argument are a Melbourne-based indie cabaret duo with overtones of anti-folk and punk love. They write raw ballads with sharp tongues and perform with chaotic abandon."
They've won Best Cabaret at the Adelaide Fringe Festival for the past 2 years got honourable mentions from fine publications such as Australian Stage and Three Weeks

They are the two of the most talented singer/sonwriter/composers/performers I've ever had the pleasure to listen to and they know Amanda F#$ing Palmer, and they are Melbourne's best IMHO, but my opinion is very skewed-I am in love with Tom's amazing, warm, full bodied voice.

watch THIS VIDEO of them being totally super awesome at Camperdown Park, in Sydney. This will prove how totally frickin amazing they are, if you don't believe me already! 

Some of the things on their resume of rad include:
  • hosting #twitnic's
  • playing *house gigs, *in actual houses
  • and collaborating with the likes of Amanda F#$king Palmer and Neil Gaiman, just to name a few.
THESE GUYS ARE AWESOME! and they just launched their Album Somewhere under the Rainbow so go check it out on their site and purchase it if you love it as much as I do.
