Artists Retreat as a true Shitstorm descends.
Wednesday November 29th ~
Stay fit the old fashioned way, dashing from death via dance, during Swingin' at the Speakeasy. It's free (from awful modern fitness fads) from 10 til 2.
Thursday November the 30th ~
It has been many years since I've ventured to Melbourne - and then I was invariably playing the night before Golden Plains at some ungodly hour.
So I'm stoked to be able to blow my own horn and head down to The Retreat on Brunswick Road, at a civil hour, without having to rise again before dawn, to reunite with many mates and music lovers I rarely see.
Please join us there. If you are one of those perverse Victorians who wade through this weird newsletter weekly you truly deserve a treat! I will do my best, out in the beer garden between 6 and 10, to tear early summer asunder. It's free for all!
Friday December the 1st ~
If airlines, aircraft and the gods of weather permit our transit in a rather narrow dusk window, I will reconvene back in Shitme at the stately Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre, spinning a sic set from half 8 til half 11. Open to all commies comrades.
As if that were not a stupid enough schedule, I'll then restart my engine and motor up to Enmore's new Trocadero Room, a nifty new venue from the peeps behind Earl's Juke Joint and Jacoby's Tiki Bar. Unbelievably they have a 4AM licence - and whilst it may yet close closer to 3, I'm determined to crank out bangers until the cows come home if they'll let me. Meet there after everything else for a freaky free time on the floor from 1AM on.
Saturday December the 2nd ~
Some weeks I can't really believe what I'm writing you know? There are certain acts we've been waiting for a suitable synchronicity to yield as possible visitors to Jack Off for years, even decades. So many details monitored and emails exchanged for oft-times a slim chance at best.
So it's wild when two come true at once! This Saturday arvo at 3 on the dot you'll hear the incomparable Xylouris White playing live in the studios, immediately followed by magical maestro M. Ward - graciously visiting us on his day off, no less! Please tune in, or listen back on-demand.
Before I collapse catatonic at this overload of experience I aim to ingest at least three or four of the sublime new cocktails on the list of the Best Hotel Bar, Dean and Nancy on 22. Thus far I can strongly recommend the Aconcagua, Dark Side Of The Moon, Malinalli and Rocketman. Join me there between 9 and 12.30 for aural and oral pleasure. Gratis!
