As gales abate we await - a return flight, to night.
Wednesday June the 5th ~
I'm anxious to confirm that the sole Virgin flight each day from the Sunshine Coast to Sydney will duly fly, as I've a rather vast responsibility to attend to tonight - playing the Gala Opening Party for the Sydney Film Festival, in Town Hall's majestic Centennial Hall, following the sold out premiere of Rachel Ward's Palm Beach at the State Theatre.
If yr lucky enough to be heading along you'll (hopefully) hear me spin from the stage, in front of the vast pipe organ, between 10PM and 1AM.
Thursday June the 6th ~
DJ Soup was good enough to swap our free sets at Palmer & Co this week, so that I'd be available to launch the filmic fest, thus I'll be playing 10PM til 3AM on Thursday instead - whilst the tall fella will spin for the Speakeasy the night prior.
Friday June the 7th ~
As the weekend begins you'll find me Upstairs at the Marly scrubbing the sin from my shins, whilst distracting the moral majority with a plethora of free and fruity tunes between half 9 and midnight.
Saturday June the 8th ~
Then, as Saturday rolls around, it's time for another blissfully bizarre broadcast of Jack Off, from 3 til 5PM on FBi Radio.
A little later I've what might well be the final 90 minutes of a 6 year residency at The Marly - upstairs again, between 7 and 8.30PM. I was imported into the joint when Riversdale purchased it and transformed the place from a college hell-hole to a progressive hotel fit for the Newtown community.
My primary role was curating the respective curators of Tokyo Sing Song from it's founding month on - a pristine privilege of programming that allowed for infinite risks, mutant music, aberrant performance and some unforgettable experiences with some of the most passionate people in Sydney and beyond.
Soon after, Miss Peaches launched with a roster of radically diverse culture collectors rotating on the decks. It was so refreshing to escape fashion and wallow in whack relics of wild times gone by.
Solotel bought the pub a year or two back and Sing Song has had a DJ focus since so my position booking live fare evaporated. But I've enjoyed working upstairs regardless, spinning songs from almost the exact spot where a particularly twisted test broadcast of FBi once originated.
I hope to have some role there in future but there's no guarantee - so swing by and raise a toast to time well spent if yr in the area. It has been a joy!
By 9PM I'll be playing my one free public-access set for the Festival Hub at Lower Town Hall. Join us!
