Your ultimate ocular ultra-sound this annum.
Wednesday December the 27th ~
Lock in late sounds of old from 10 til 2 at Palmer.
Friday December the 29th ~
Ethereal aquatic elements emerge on a celestial plane via Dean and Nancy on 22, from 9 til 12.30.
Saturday December the 30th ~
Jack Off shits seeds of eternal life between 3 & 5 before new shoots emerge at Maybe Sammy twixt 9 & 1.
Sunday December the 31st ~
Sham DJs musically measure the infinite angles between times and space as Earth people carouse on high, marking another minuscule moment, even as it passes once again.
Given the rarefied nature of the fine food and beverages supplied on this symbolic occasion this prolific party at the best hotel bar in the Pacific is my only engagement this week that is not free.
If you are flush and inclined to a swish finale to 2023 then do join us all night long this NYE at Dean and Nancy on 22 by booking here. Salut!
Tuneful turning points in time and place/s.
Friday December the 22nd ~
Mere hours after the sun reaches its highest spot in the sky here this year I will spin an arcane set of intense curios at the literal best bar in the world, Maybe Sammy. Entry is gratis. I play 5 til 9PM.
Saturday December the 23rd ~
Saturday sees similarly stretched sonic scenarios as I air a backlog of recent acquisitions on Jack Off between 3 & 5PM (see and hear our last guests here).
Immediately afterwards I'll be heading to Busby's, keenly anticipating my debut set on their hand-built 1977 vintage Klipsch Heresy speakers, Technics turntables and Ecler rotary mixer.
If you've not yet sampled the food, wine and cocktails brought together by the dream team of Clayton Wells, Mike Bennie and Paolo Maffietti at this new Paddington bar, tonight would be a fine place to start. I spin for free from 6 til 11PM.
Global mental music manifestations embodied locally via multiple portals and pubs for free.
Wednesday December the 13th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy from 10 til close about 2.
Friday December the 15th ~
Sin City Soirée is stoked to be returning to the Hotel Hollywood on the day it reopens in 2024 but first we've a lot of snogging and shimmying to attend to to kiss off 2023. Thank you to my darling Liz Ham for forming Sham DJs with me and helping steer this wayward ship. Join us between 9 and 2!
Saturday December the 16th ~
Jack Off has had a purple patch of unrivalled quality and variety to cap off this year (listen to this extraordinary just-written story with improvised accompaniment that Bad//Dreems performed, between live crosses to sets at the FBi Turns 20 party, in the studio last week here for an example).
This Saturday you'll hear DeepFaith (Dan Stricker of Midnight Juggernauts & Siberia Records) and artist/photographer Byron Spencer bring everything from synths and drum machine to flute and a VR headset to perform new single Daddy and another as-yet-unreleased piece. Tune in from 3 til 5.
Then I'm going for a beer or three at the Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre, incredibly multi-tasking by drinking them whilst deejaying, possibly even adding the act of eating delicious morsels from the Lucky Prawn restaurant. Witness these wonders and lots less between 8.30 and 11.30.
I'm buggering off up to Queensland for some family time by the beach next week (so Shithouse might arrive a little late). Hope all is well in yr world and we see you somewhere before New Years. Peace!
Perpetually reborn songs & radio pour freely forth.
Wednesday December the 6th ~
Secret signs say Swingin' at the Speakeasy be the place to be. I'll follow the King Creole Band's several sets (starting at 7) and some interstitial fare from Dean Riot, personally playing 11 til late.
Friday December the 8th ~
A (fro)zen set of aberrant early latin audio to sate the state of early-summer heat at El Primo Sanchez, beginning at 6 before vanishing two hours later.
Saturday December the 9th ~
After last week's astounding spread of far-flung talent and surprise combos (fit for a finale for most, one might imagine) we still have sublime live fare to air this year. After a false start a few months ago, Bad//Dreems join me to Jack Off on FBi Radio between 3 and 5.
We strongly suggest listening back to the prior program on-demand to be blown away by the stunning performances of both Xylouris White and M Ward (joined by Folk Bitch Trio).
I'm not sure what I can conjure to match the atmosphere created by the wild lightning storm I soundtracked (with literal lyric themes of course) at Dean and Nancy on 22 last week but you know I'll give it my all. Book a spot and take the lift up to the 22nd floor to sample staggeringly inventive cocktails and food as you enjoy the tunes on either side of the building. I spin heartily: 9 til 12.30.
