Lyrical. Swaggering. A mix of glamour and grit.

Baxter Dury comes to The Glasshouse following the release of his album I Thought I Was Better Than You. The record is a new era for Baxter, a kind of extension of his 2021 book Chaise Lounge in which he winningly recounted his childhood. On record here he’s also reckoning with the legacy of that famous family name and bringing his own influences from drowsy, psychedelic west-coast hip-hop to his own colourful, evocative lyricism.

About the artist

“Hey Mummy? Hey Daddy? Who am I? Who am I Mummy? Who am I?”

“I’m definitely a really budget nepo-baby”

Baxter will always beat you to the punchline. He’ll answer his own questions and he’ll volunteer himself as the butt of the joke before you can. His ability to understand people’s perception of him (or who they believe he is) is what has kept his work consistently surprising and inventive for over two decades now. And while it’s his humour that draws you in, it’s his linguistic acrobatics that you stay for – a wild barrage of emotion, colour and off kilter scenes.
