I'm so gutted I didn't plug this at the climax of last week's massive radio show (listen back to hear No Fixed Address live). I raced through the Diary intending to save it for last then, after plugging countless gigs by others, I clean forgot.
It's a big reboot of Sin City Soirée at The Hollywood, enormously embellished by the talents of my gorgeous partner Liz Ham and comrade in culture The Vidiot. This will be the first pairing up of the latter's improvised video artistry and my tawdry tunes since our debut collaboration for Good Riddance on the night of the federal election.
Please join us for a wild ride through all forms of sex and sound - local, lost and long-gone - from 9PM til 2AM. No charge. Freshly fucked fashion far from frowned upon!
Saturday May the 27th ~
As Vivid Festival kicks off we are not yet sure whether star attraction José Gabriel González will be returning to Jack Off on FBi ahead of his three Opera House shows. Time will tell!
Ditto for our decades-long effort to lure Robert Forster onto the program. That either, let alone both, are even possible blows my mind really. I love my job!
Afterwards I'll be heading down to Maybe Sammy on The Rocks to tenderly console patrons regarding the imminent end of everything by playing crazy global party absurdities whilst they drink unrivalled cocktails. Entry is of course free. 9PM til 1AM!
Minimal numerical characters for the muse sick.

The Gum Ball is the best BYO festival in this State: fire-fuelled, kid and dog friendly and run by a true blue local family in the Hunter each Easter. Check the whole line-up for the weekend here. Day one climaxes with Mudhoney, after which both Sham DJs and Urby will fire up three channels of Silent Disco dance and drama for singers of every stripe til 2AM.
Saturday April the 22nd ~
Once we truck back down to the big smoke to broadcast Jack Off there's perhaps some chance I will have cajoled Mudhoney into swinging by the FBi studios on their drive south too. Tune in between 3 and 5PM to see if that possibility comes to pass.
Afterwards I'm stoked to be playing my debut set for the new Maybe Group venue El Primo Sanchez at the old Three Weeds in Paddo. This joint is really kitted out, as stunning sonically as it is visually. Join me there to feast on Mexican food, down sassy cocktails and dance to a marvellous mess of latin rhythms and melodies all the way from 8 til 1. Free!
Monday April the 24th ~
After a much-needed day of rest I'll have the honour of playing music for the wedding of Tanya and Sam in Potts Point. It has been a such a pleasure to liaise with this ultra-organised couple of passionate music fans. Makes my job a dream. Can't wait!
Tuesday April the 25th ~
Finally to ANZAC Day where Australians process the horrors of war by gambling and getting on the piss! Unsurprisingly I'll be situated in a brewery, namely the vast yet classy/glassy Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre in Marrickville.
The unusual aspect here comes prior to my 7 til 10PM set, as two rare live music performances take place - first Babitha at 4.30, then Tim Rogers himself from 6. There are no tickets and no passouts so if you wanna see the shows rock up anytime from midday with a lobster in hand! All proceeds go to Legacy.
Find free music in this world of beauty and pain.

During whatever microsleeps travel with family permits FBi will be graced instead by a far less het-up host for Jack Off in the inestimably lovely Jonny Seymour. Listen to him here and there, 3-5.
