We began this year by going back to the future on Free Broadcast Incorporated. If you wanna hear direct from one one of the few people (beyond the founders of the proposed Universal Power World Society) to have seen the infamous (now-completed) Western Sydney abode above listen back here.
Wednesday January the 9th ~
Too much gothic golf laid me up in bed from Saturday on, after quite severely injuring my lower back.
I'm mainly mobile again though - so consequently you'll find me christening this year's first Swingin' at the Speakeasy tonight from 10PM (directly after Wes Pudsey and the Sonic Aces and DJ Pia Andersen) til close at around 3AM. Palmer & Co is always fabulous fun - and forever free.
Friday January the 11th ~
As Friday night falls the s(l)ick sport continues - with a one-off return to deejaying up on the smokers' balcony of The Rose, so as to entertain a ridiculous retinue of reprobates celebrating the umpteenth birthday of local music-man Le Stoltz.
It's a private party in a public place, so crash it! Will be far more wild than a regular night in Erko I can assure you - and the sounds I spin between 7 and 11 will be pumped throughout all levels of the joint anyway. Like everything this week, it's free!
Saturday January the 12th ~
On Saturday I'm honoured to be welcoming one of Earth's most sublime harpists to the FBi studios, as Mary Lattimore joins us all the way from LA.
Mary is performing three concerts at the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre for Sydney Festival, where her harp will be amplified via speakers submerged in the pool, so attendees will literally be swimming in the sound she creates.
These events are long sold-out so do not miss this precious opportunity to hear from a consummate artist, live on Jack Off between 3 and 5PM.
Afterwards I'll be experimenting with an even-broader-than-usual sonic pallette as I play a free five-hour-long set from 7PM upstairs at The Marly.
Sunday January the 13th ~
Sunday affords an ideal context to experience another warm and sunny weekend, with the Petersham Bowling Club open again for 2019.
I missed the chance to settle in by the greens with songs for all and sundry in December, so I'm stoked to be performing on the first Sunday of the year.
Bring yr dogs, yr kids, yr mates and kick back with some of their ever-rotating tap beers. It's a great chance to relax and relate amongst a heartening slice of our people. Hope to see you there!
Ice-cold options to keep you cool through what's left of this heatwave, from this year til the next.
Tuesday January the 1st ~
Start 2019 high on (a) high - with another of the Imperial Hotel's infamous day-after-the-night-before Hung AF parties.
Doors to this rooftop paradise open at midday. Entry is free. Happy hour(s) kick in from 3 - when I begin to spin my 5-hour-long set.
The forecast is mercifully slightly cooler. There are air conditioned indoor rooms and umbrella-shaded rooftop spaces to choose from - all of which are linked with quality sound. See you there!
Friday January the 4th ~
Ascend the stairs again on Friday evening and you'll find me playing Upstairs at the Marly (previously known as Miss Peaches).
Once again there's the choice of indoor air con or a beautiful balcony with a view of King Street's busiest corner. Half 9 til midnight. Free!
Saturday January the 5th ~
Jack Off begins the year with a bang, fizz and warped wail as the ultra-accomplished David Chesworth joins us to play a few of his 50 Synthesiser Greats live in the studio between 3 & 5.
Whatever yr up to this week I wish you peace, prosperity, health and happiness.
Take care out there!
