Certain acts in uncertain places - an antediluvian index of opportunity for the ancient gentle person.
Wednesday October the 23rd ~
The Faculties warm the floor for Swingin' at the Speakeasy from 7PM, then I cool it out from 10 til the joint closes around 3. Free.
Friday October the 25th ~
It's gonna be a hot on Friday so I'm stoked to be returning to UNSW to play the beautiful Moreton-Bay-Fig-shaded Roundhouse beer garden gratis from 5 til 7. Drop in if yr about. Sunset sound is sweet!
After that I'm doing another eccentrically-themed (1982 Fleet Week) annual party for the Grumpy Sailor mob all night so for one last week I've a substitute selector at the South King Recreation Club.
Goldfoot did a great job filling in for Mario Speedwagon at Splendour's Gold Bar and afterparty this year and he'll be reprising the role and bringing his rare rock and kooky covers to bear in Newtown between 8PM and 1AM. Entry is always free.
Saturday October the 26th ~
Once I scrape myself outta bed on Saturday morning I'll be migrating north to tiny Tiona, where I've the pleasure of playing music for Tessa and Adam's lakeside wedding. Consequently the biggest round of DJ swaps I've ever administered continues.
All going according to plan (and barring any further dental misadventures) Eddy Diamond will at last reprise her fantastic Jack Off fill-in from a few months ago. Tune in to FBi Radio from 3 til 5 and turn it up!
Broadcast junkies hanging for another radiophonic fix might also care to stream last week's sublime (and ridiculous) show - featuring a stunning solo rendition of Youth Group's first song in over a decade Cusp.
I actually caught some of Trevor Brown's excellent eclectic set at the Hotel Hollywood last week after leading a merry band of wedding attendees down the way from the Beta Bar. The place was packed with such a wonderfully diverse range of people - even got to catch up with Melissa from Chicks On Speed (who'd just played at Carriageworks) for the first time in something like a decade and a half.
It's so gratifying to see Saturday nights there evolving into such a warm and welcoming sanctuary for lovers of art and culture. Goddess knows Sydney needs it! I can't wait to get back behind the decks every week from next week - but until then you've one last guest deejay of distinction in DJ Soup.
Swing by any time from 9 til at least 2 (but often 3, keeping lame lockouts from half 1 in mind).
It's fab, it's fun, it's freaky and it's free.
