It's official: the weather is starting to become unbearably hot, which means we're just a few months away from the annual Falls music and arts festival. The multi-day camping festival will hit regional spots in Victoria, Tassie, NSW and WA in December and January, but for those amongst us less than keen to abandon comfortable living for a week of non-stop music mayhem (well, at least those in Sydney and Melbourne), a whole stack of the lineup's choice cuts have announced capital city sideshows. 

With more still expected to drop in the coming months, Secret Sounds have dropped a bombshell list of one-off shows for Sydney and Melbourne, featuring britpop icon Liam Gallagher, indie-poppers Foster The People and pop-rock powerhouse The Kooks. Neo-soul lords Jungle, indie-rock scorchers Everything Everything and pop princess Flint Eastwood will also play a pair of their own shows in Sydney and Melbourne, while rapper DRAM will drop by Melbourne with an exclusive gig.

Tickets for all sideshows are on sale now. Given that they're all slated to go down in venues far smaller than the respective artist's hype (see: Liam Gallagher at the GODDAMN ENMORE), coupled with the fact that tickets to most of the Falls dates were snapped up in record time, we're not expecting these to last very long.
