Super sucker saviours for the silly social seen.

Swingin' at the Speakeasy pairs live music (from The Roslyns this week) with vintage deejay sets from Pia Andersen between 7 and 10, before I spin out til close at around 1 or 2AM. It's always free.

Open Air Cinema has been a revelation to me. Until now I'd never witnessed it's scale and beauty. Playing there, through what must be nearly 50 speakers across a waterside site almost half a kilometre long, is a profound pleasure.
This week I've the opportunity to provide a musical entrée to the new version of Dune, which sold out at the Sydney Film Festival. If you join me from 6PM to enjoy the sunset prior to the screening I'm positive you'll understand my relishing this role.

Saturday's a strange one. Tremendously excited at the prospect of performing on the hallowed ground of the Brick Pits at Sydney Park for Heaps Gay as part of King Street Crawl, I solicited my salutary stand-in Jonny Seymour to host Jack Off in my place. Last time this handover was to happen COVID got in the way. So it is again, with the whole vast festival indefinitely postponed.
Then I was offered a gig, at the same time as my show, around the corner from the station in the Backyard at The Alex. Needing money after having all of my late December and New Years gigs cancelled I decided to work simultaneous to the show and leave it in Jonny's more than capable hands, happy that he'd have the opportunity to broadcast after a last-minute close contact isolation situation interfered a month back.
You'll be able to choose yr own adventure come 3PM: Jonny on air or me outdoors. Both will be fresh and free. If you really wanna go the whole hog come to the pub first then stream the show on-demand later!
2022: Two funny two die for. A 2020 vision. A gas.

Keep yr cool despite the infernal, internal and external temperatures in the Botanic Gardens - for the new season of Open Air Cinema, kicking off with the latest James Bond flick No Time To Die. As the sun sinks I'll be spinning suitable cinematic songs between 6 and 8PM. This will sell out!
Afterwards join me from 9 til after midnight at Maybe Sammy as we exorcise the demons that have beset this summer with a full frontal attack of defiant energy, sheer sass and vaulting joy.
Saturday January the 8th ~
After cutting up New Years Day with a perverted pop pastiche of televisual field recording fragments and sonic detritus Jack Off returns to semi-regular status as a sizzling eruption of aberration and adulation between 3 and 5PM on FBi Radio.
Thereafter I will continue to rub salt in the wounds of naysayers and hope-betrayers by serving up a swish yet sweaty set of hipshakers in the sky-high paradise that is Dean and Nancy on 22. Book now and gather atop the tower as pastel hues bathe the best bar beyond Sammy, from 8 til late. Both gigs free!
