Monday, November 18, 2019 - 16:21

Ten years after the release of his final album, Pop Crimes, we pay tribute to the legacy of the visionary Australian rock musician, Rowland S Howard with a performance featuring former bandmates and special guests.

On 12 February, 2020, original members of Howard’s bands – Young Charlatans, The Birthday Party, Crime & the City Solution and These Immortal Souls – and other key collaborators from throughout his 34-year career will come together here at our Royal Festival Hall.

Ahead of what’s sure to be an electrifying evening of live music, we remind ourselves of Howard’s vital and emotionally intense presence on Australia’s post-punk scene with this playlist, featuring some of his stand-out and most memorable tracks.



Pop Crimes, featuring Howard’s former bandmates Mick Harvey, JP Shilo, Harry Howard and Genevieve McGuckin, along with appearances from Conrad Standish, Bobby Gillespie, Jonnine Standish, Lydia Lunch and more to be announced, is at Royal Festival Hall on 12 February 2020.
