    Friday March 16, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Beale Street Tavern (214-B East 6th St, Austin, TX 78701)

    Cheeky, charming and touchingly direct, Melbourne foursome Twerps have risen from humble beginnings to become international lo-fi pop champions.
    Formed in 2008, Twerps were supporting the likes of Deerhunter (USA), the Bats (New Zealand), the Black Lips (USA), Yo La Tengo (USA) and Thee Oh Sees (USA) within a few months of their first gig.
    Their debut EP was released by Chapter Music in 2009 (also released on cassette by US label Night People) and saw the band described as “the best new band in Australia” by iconic UK magazine Uncut.
    They released two singles in early 2011 on US labels Underwater Peoples (Mountain Man, Real Estate) and Group Tightener (Best Coast, Cloud Nothings). They also took off on their first US tour, a six week adventure that took in SXSW, a midwest tour with Wet Hair, and a packed New York show with Big Troubles.
    Their warm-hearted, ramshackle self-titled debut album was released in October 2011, as a co-release for Chapter Music and Underwater Peoples, after lead track Dreamin was premiered on Pitchfork. The album has received handsome reviews, including a 7.9 from Pitchfork and a coveted Best New Track for album closer Coast To Coast. The record was streamed on Stereogum and Gorilla Vs Bear and has been written up everywhere from Fader to Vice.
