Gerald Simpson will play 11 shows in the region over the next month.
The acid house pioneer's trip will begin this weekend with a string of five dates in Australia and New Zealand. He'll perform at Laruche in Brisbane on March 13th, followed by a Piknic Electronik Melbourne party at The Paddock behind Federation Square, where he'll share the bill with Suzanne Kraft and the Animals Dancing crew. From there he jets over to NZ to play Bodega in Wellington on the 20th and Cassette Nine in Auckland on the 21st, before crossing the Tasman again for a Sydney show on the 22nd hosted by The House of Mince at the Oxford Art Factory.
Gerald then heads to Asia for another half-dozen gigs, starting out at the W Retreat & Spa in Bali on March 26th and Lola Club in Shanghai on the 28th. Thailand will get two shows—one at the W Retreat in Koh Samui on April 2nd, the other at Overground Bar in Bangkok on the 3rd—then he's back in China for a set at Beijing's Dada Bar on the 4th. His tour comes to an end in Japan, where he'll play at Air in Tokyo on April 11th.
