Midnight Circus enjoyed an amazing 2009, riding the Triple J airwaves after spending 6 weeks at #1 on the Unearthed charts and playing at the Triple J Hottest 100 festival at the Esplanade Hotel, St Kilda. Headlining sold-out shows at Melbourne music institutions such as the Evelyn, Hi-Fi Bar, Tote, Revolver Upstairs and The Espy, Midnight Circus has stamped its footprint on the Melbourne local music scene and has recently returned from a west coast tour that included playing at the Summadayze festival in Perth. http://www.midnightcircusmusic.com/ 3) Midnight Circus is a sleaze rock band that continued in the 1990s and 2000s the style of 1980s "hair metal".
