Presidents of the United States of America playing at UNSW Roundhouse, Sydney, Australia - 15th March 2013...
They've toured Australia regularly but this is the first time they're presenting that album from start to finish to local audiences. They'll also race through their other tunes that came off the back of this record. A must for fans of the PUSA and nostalgists of the mid '90s.

KillRockStar Big Dog Entertainment are excited to present 90's pop rock legends The Presidents Of The United States of America live in Australia in 2013 playing their classic, 5 x platinum, self-titled debut album in its entirety along with all their greatest hits.
In 1995 Seattle outfit Presidents Of The United States of America launched their self-titled debut album and in the process took the world by storm with their unique take on guitar based pop rock. Armed with their uniquely modified electric guitars, an arsenal of perfect infectious pop hooks and super-smart songwriting skills the band scored massive hits around the world with the singles Lump, Peaches and Kitty. Whilst there was no doubting the extreme catchiness of POTUSA's songs it was the undeniable sense of humor and fun with which they were delivered that really won the affection of music lovers of the decade.
The Presidents Of The United States of America's connection with this country has been a long and fruitful one with the band wholeheartedly embraced by Australian music lovers with their first two albums going five times and two times platinum respectively. Off the back of their 2004 album Love Everybody The Presidents toured Australia to packed houses selling out all shows in record time, so much so that they were back in the country playing to adoring fans some six short months later.
Formed by childhood friends Chris Ballew (lead vocals, two-string basitar) and Dave Dederer (three-string guitbass, backing vocals), the duo played together in a number of projects before forming The Presidents of the United States of America in 1990. The newly named outfit recorded a demo tape, which began circulating around the Seattle musical community and, in the process, earned them a cult following. Drummer Jason Finn joined the band in 1993 and within a year the Presidents became one of the most popular bands in Seattle.
