It's a giving thing.
Today's edition is exclusively illustrated by Liz Ham's photographs from Recovery On The Rocks part 2.
My deepest gratitude goes out to Liz for graciously co-producing both events with me - and to every person who shared space and songs with such aplomb.
Wednesday June the 9th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy sees Queenie and The Cavaliers playing live for the dancers between 7 and 10 at Palmer & Co. I'll take to the decks after, til close in the early morn. Entry is always free.
Friday June the 11th ~
DJ Soup will minister to the minions of his Shire from 7 til 9 the next night, before fleeing for the Inner-West and leaving me in charge of gratis audio outreach at the Allawah Hotel. Wraps up at midnight.
Saturday June the 12th ~
After enabling a massive 3 hours of power from The Snacc Pacc by virtue of my absence from FBi last week I must no doubt lift my game this time around. Tune in to Jack Off from 3 til 5 to see what flies.
I'll be gathering and garnering strength as I get set to mark the end of a golden age of enlightened and community-minded hospitality at one of our most treasured institutions later that evening. I feel very privileged to have been the final selector resident at this establishment and will send it off in style. Sadly the sheer pressure of numbers necessitates that this will be an invite-only event.
Sunday June the 13th ~
On Good Friday we gave Great Club it's first spin around the dancefloor, mere days after restrictions on dancing lifted for the first time. The pronounced passion of the diverse folks who populated that swathe of space was a joy to behold.
A decision was taken then and there to make this a long weekend tradition. Thus we are back this Sunday for another sublime early evening experience of culinary and musical delights.
Melinda Dimitriades' Girls Gotta Eatery will be serving the hungry hordes from doors at 4. I'll play preposterous pop and utterly underground absurdities between 6 and 10 (curious parties can hear almost all of the Easter set here).
Don't even think about batting an eye at the smoke machine, it will be in full effect. Dancing Queen is free for all - but register here!
