TameImpalaWednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Australian psychedelic rock band Tame Impala returns to play live at Lapa’s Circo Voador tonight.

This marks the band’s fourth time in the city. They first performed at Circo Voador in 2011, then in 2012 at Imperator. Last year they again played live at Circo Voador in October.

For two of their previous shows, the band arrived in Rio with the help of Queremos, a Rio crowdfunded kickstarter, that connects musicians, agents and fans to work together to book shows. Queremos again helped the band to make a stop in Rio tonight before their appearance at the Popload Festival in São Paulo.

Formed by Kevin Parker in Perth, Australia in 2007, Tame Impala consists of Parker on vocals, gutiar, bass, drums and various other instruments; Jay Watson on drums and guitar, and Dominic Simper on drums and guitar. Cam Avery also provides bass and backing vocals on tour and Julien Barbagallo plays the drums live and also provides backing voacals at live shows.

The band has released two full-lenght studio albums: Innerspeaker in 2010 and Lonerism in 2012.
