Last Thursday night, although my gig at Red Bennies got cancelled I ended up playing at Druids cafe! Druids is a little cafe on Swanston Street opposite RMIT. It is tiny and there was only really people from uni in the cafe but the atmosphere was sweet! It was really late notice but Trevor, one of the teachers was able to get me a left handed guitar. He went to Cranbourne music to buy one, then returned it the next morning! I was so grateful. I played three songs, two covers and an original.
The weekly night at Druids is ran by the students in the performance class so I was lucky enough to get another chance to play there next week on the 11th of October! I will be doing this show solo as it is only a twenty or so minute set. I will probably perform my original as well as some new covers I am thinking or doing!
In other news, in December I will be participating in the Melbourne Fresh Industry Showcase’s at Revolver Upstairs! One of the bookers there posted on the wall of my Facebook page and gave me a call. I will be writing a few more originals for that gig when uni finishes so I will try to keep you updated!
I will leave you with something I have been listening to heaps lately and am thinking of covering!
Unfortunately due to booking troubles my gig at Red Bennies tomorrow night with Bj has been cancelled ;(
I will be sure to keep you guys up to date on other gigs though!
In the mean time make sure you give our pages a like on Facebook!
Got much on for Thursday night? Feel like seeing a bit of live music?
Come down to Red Bennies! Bj and I have another gig there at around 8pm! Should be sweet night!
I uploaded another video from the Velma Grove show!
Bj and I are covering “Girl With One Eye” by Florence and the Machine.
While you’re on my channel feel free to check out some of my other covers! Hope you enjoy!
Last Wednesday night I played at an open mic night in Balnarring. It had such a cool atmosphere.
You had to donate $5 to get in, write your name on a list and then when it was your turn you just went up and played two songs.
I played my original and a cover of ‘I don’t mind’ by Defeater.
I then called Bj up to the stage and we did a cover of Lonely Boy by the black Keys. This was my favourite part of the evening because when we got to the first chorus, someone on drums, bass, guitar and harmonica had jumped on the stage and started jamming with us.
It was all so chilled, I will definitely go back!
It’s on every second Wednesday night at the Town Hall in Balnarring. It seems to be run just by the local muso’s and they had a cute little set up with Fairly lights lighting up the stage.
On Thursday the 30th of August Bj and I played at the Velma Grove Debut Headline show. We played an eight song set which included covers of Settle Down, Lonely Boy, Girl With One Eye, My Hero, Yellow, I’m On Fire, Valerie and ‘Supercocaine’.
The other supporting act on the night was The Men They Call Jayne who got the crowd nice and warmed up for Velma Grove.
I also took photos on this night, and you can see them all here!
