Yep yep, really busy. Very moving. Cunt make it up!
Wednesday April the 27th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy is free and fab from 10-2.
Friday April the 29th ~
Playing a fantastic wedding by the sea at Killcare.
Saturday April the 30th ~
Jack Off weaves stories and sound between 3 and 5PM.
Dean and Nancy on 22 was beyond imagining last week: from Mexican wedding parties to staff umbrella dances; deliberately broken glasses to thematically accompany songs; going track-for-track with (owner) Stefano and (mate) Pasan from an iPad in a restaurant booth; all whilst the usual stream of unlikely celebrities and idiosyncratic humanity streams through stunned and startled.
With the other (venue manager) Stefano returning Saturday morning from a Thai bar-junket-slash-long-overdue-holiday absolutely anything could happen. Join us from 9PM til 12.30AM. We're always free!
Getting set to move offshore again, further afield still (though bizarrely closer to town). Next fortnight will be shaky and simple online here.
Wednesday April the 20th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy has Bridie King live between 7 and 10 then myself winding digital wheels til around 2 in the morn. Entry to our secret subterranean place is always free. Dress fancy.
Friday April the 22nd ~
The Gum Ball at last returns to Dashville, a family farm just outside of Belford, up in the Hunter. Definitely the best all-ages BYO music festival in NSW, this is a chance to lap up the fresh air and soak in the heat of some of the most colossal public fires you'll ever encounter.
Day one rolls through a few luminaries (like Kim Salmon after sundown) before ending up with a cray segue from Jazzparty's climactic live set into the legendary Silent Disco (as helmed by ex-Sydneysider, now Newy-based Urby and myself). It's a World (Bar) Party in the bush, from midnight til 2!
Saturday April the 23rd ~
After a diverting for front-yard echidna excursions and a wild wedding (see my footage of the supergroup who performed at the reception here), happily affording all and sundry another opportunity to experience the empathetic radiophonic style of Jonny Seymour on Jack Off last week, I return to the air (with awesome new producer Luce) between 3 & 5 this Saturday arvo, direct from forested fields up north.
Thereafter you'll find me washed and besuited atop A by Adina in the CBD to spin suave songs & twinkling tunes to the skyline at Dean and Nancy on 22. It's free of charge but wise to book. 9PM til 12.30AM.
Escape the cycle of strife via these slices of life.
Wednesday April the 13th ~
Stroll down to Swingin' at the Speakeasy then shake a tail feather free from the mire of the modern era. Live music from Queenie and The Cavaliers between 7 and 10 then yours truly til about 2. Always free.
Thursday April the 14th ~
I'll be back at Palmer & Co to sling a slightly more sedate sunset bracket from 5 til 7, just as the loooong weekend gets underway. No charge for entry.
Saturday April the 16th ~
By the weekend proper I'm kinda clocking off for once, dedicating my time to wedding high jinks and leaving our ultimate Uncle (Jonny Seymour) in charge of the signal of FBi Radio for Jack Off, 3 til 5PM.
Take care all. Plenty more to share in days to come.
Hacks to help break the skyhog night cycle of shite.
Wednesday April the 6th ~
The long-awaited return of The Roslyns was postponed just prior to last week's Swingin' at the Speakeasy but they are set to make a styling return to our strange hidden cellar tonight between 7 and 10PM. I'll spin antique audio thereafter until around 2AM. All are welcome and entry is always free.
Thursday April the 7th ~
The Powerhouse tonight celebrates its Electric Keys exhibition with a diabolical line-up of live talent including Indira Elias, Pookie, Rainbow Chan, Corin and Ziggy Ramo. I'll be playing a five hour set to theme from 4PM. Once again there is no charge.
Friday April the 8th ~
Multiple moon madness may manifest at Maybe Sammy (if last week is anything to go by) when I reprise the 9PM til 1AM set of wildly diverse musical cues for savvy drinkers and diners. Gratis!
Saturday April the 9th ~
After a revelatory return to hosting live guests (following a pandemic-driven lay off of two years) Jack Off is this week back to transmitting non-stop music alone. There are astounding artists scheduled for the weeks and months ahead but if you missed Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool, Mondo Rock et al) playing Eagle Rock live on the 50th anniversary of it's release, or Johnny (from Fascinator and Children Collide) debuting a tender new love song last week you can catch the lot on-demand here.
On Saturday night I cordially invite you to a Bondi Block Party in Dudley St, helmed by The Vidiot (who will also perform) and featuring tunes by Maya Gold from Honeytrap Sound System. Hopefully the endless tantrum from the sky might have abated a bit by then but the place will be equipped for any weather regardless. I'll play a seriously spirited set for stepping from 9 til 11. Of course it's free for all!
