Hobo Johnson And The Lovemakers Announce Falls Side Shows
You heard it here first, Sacramento alternative hip-hop artist Hobo Johnson (aka Frank Lopes Jr) backed by his bandmates “The Lovemakers” have announced their first headline show in Australia.
Fans can look forward to seeing the viral wordsmith bringing his trademark blend of spoken-word hip-hop and alternative rock to the Factory Theatre in Sydney Thursday 3rd January, and the Corner Hotel in Melbourne (SOLD OUT) Saturday 5th January.
In November 2017, Hobo Johnson released the record The Rise of Hobo Johnson, which Frank wrote during a time he had to live out of his ’94 Toyota Corolla – hence his self-given pseudonym. On April 17, 2018, Hobo Johnson released the highly-anticipated single “Peach Scone” (both the studio and live version) The single came on the heels of Hobo Johnson’s “Peach Scone” live performance video, which was posted online as a submission for NPR’s Tiny Desk contest. The live video of that unreleased track got Hobo Johnson much more than expected. In just 7 weeks, the “Peach Scone” video racked up over 14.6 million views on Facebook and YouTube.
