EPISODE 24: SOMETHING ABOUT BEING 16 IS BORING WITH TEENAGE JOANS AND TOWNS

Welcome to BackBeat’s first episode of 2021!In this one we are out in the field, on-site at Stay Gold in Brunswick for the Teenage Joans / TOWNS co-headliner, chatting to them about all things tour, new releases, crazy Adelaide stories, and their Aussie faves.Due to being recorded on-site at the actual venue right before their show, there is a bit of background noise, mostly music from the front bar in Ollies Pizza Bar (check it out, amaaazing food), but hopefully it’s not too bad post-edit. Be sure to check out both of these amazing Adelaide duos doing amazing things and keep your ears and eyes peeled for a super cool next ep!-J + G xo
