Cup Eve at the Tote

3/11/08 $8
Before I forget, I better mention cup Eve at the Tote. If your not from Melbourne town, we(some of us) have a day off at the start November for a horse race that stops a nation.

I can't remember the name of the first band but they were rocking. Second band in the lineup was Subaudible Hum from Melbourne, who reminded me of bands like The Doves and Radio Head, very prog rock.

The headlining act was James McCann and The Dirty Skirt Band who were very captivating, sprawling, epic and moving. I was very tired, but they kept me fixated to there sound.

Crystal Thomas

Crystal Thomas - Madhouse

Here's some great mellow, relaxing Aussie music. It's a little urban gothic country vibe that some Melbourne singers do well, and it also reminds me a little of the Bad Seeds in there too.

Next gig is at the Retreat Hotel Supporting Matt Walker & Ashley Davies on 27th November 2008
(DUO GIG)The Retreat Hotel - Melbourne,

The Julies

Just been listening to this 6 track ep by The Julies that found its way to me. It got some nice collage art work on the front. The track Janet Leigh Scream is a little heavy, maye like some early 90's pub rock but the rest is rather summery jangly tunes. Check more tunes out here.

The Rebelles'

The Rebelles' at Ya Yahs Saturday 18th October 2008
Richmond Lager

I’ve been a little slack with posting this gig, back a couple of weeks ago, on the 18th of October I had the privilege to see a 15 piece super girl group The Rebelles’, and don’t forgot the 4 piece band that backed them up. Me mind is a little fuzzy but one of the songs they closed with was Da Doo Ron Ron. It was a really huge sound and they somehow managed to fit them all into Ya Yas. They were really a fresh piece of air with there Girl Group sounds.

There next show is at the Tote on the 27th of November with Ikochi (Tokyo) and Dollsquad (Melbourne).
