DRESS UP ATTACK!

Jul 20 2012

There is an excellent new kid’s festival happening in Marrickville in September, at Addison Road Centre, which is one of my favourite community spaces. It’s on September 1st, the first day of spring, and it’s called Dress Up Attack! I will be playing with my band, The Hello Tigers. Also on the bill is Spod, Spurs For Jesus, Teddy Rock, Jimmy Giggle and more. There will also be workshops and a jumping castle and reasonably-priced food, and stuff like that. Dressing up on the day is encouraged, but not required, especially for people who are introverted and feel uncomfortable about that kind of thing. Just come as you feel.

QUEENSLAND POETRY FESTIVAL

Jul 18 2012

Having never really considered myself a poet as such, I was real chuffed to be invited to perform at this year’s Queensland Poetry Festival. So, I accepted their invitation, and will be playing a solo set at Tongues Of Flame, the opening night of the festival, which takes place at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts on August 24. You can find more information are on the shows page.

MUSICA BOTANICA

Jul 18 2012

It is so nice to be in the botanic gardens. Especially in Cairns. They have a whole greenhouse of orchids, which remind me of Meryl Streep. Anyway, I am heading up north there in August, thanks to the good people at Tanks Arts Centre. My good pal & fellow Seeker Lover Keeper bandmate, Sarah Blasko (who has just finished recording her new album!), is headlining the event, which is called Musica Botanica. I will be playing right before her, doing a solo set with my guitar and keyboard. Details are here.
