American indie rockers Sun Kil Moon and 1990s Britpop revivalists Republica will conclude a truncated concert year in Israel with shows December 6 and December 11 respectively at the Barbie Club in Tel Aviv.

Sun Kil Moon is the vehicle for prolific singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek, once the leader of ’90s band Red House Painters.

He’s performed twice in Israel on his own in 2012 and 2013, but this will be his first time here with a full band.

His first visit resulted in a song about Israel released last year and called “Baby In Death Can I Rest Next to Your Grave.”

While he’s recorded and toured steadily over the last two decades, Kozelek has been seen by most people in his role as the bass player of Stillwater, the fictional band at the center of Cameron Crowe’s 1999 film Almost Famous.

Republica were more than almost famous for a few years, primarily between 1996- 1999. Their techno- pop punky rock, as personified by their biggest hits, “Ready to Go” and “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” sounded modern when they were released, but now sound like effervescent artifacts from that era. After disbanding in 2001, the core group of Samantha Sprackling aka Saffron (vocals), Tim Dorney (keyboards), Johnny Male (guitar) and new addition Conor Lawrence (drums) reunited in 2008 and have been performing together since then.
