We’re very excited to be supporting 7-piece soul band, Alone with Tiger, on Wednesday September 10th.
We’ve heard tell that, “Chanteuse Cosmos leads the way with an elastic vocal style that encompasses likenesses to Madelaine Peyroux and Janis Joplin. She is supported by a band redolent of the golden age of soul, a vintage sound with horns punctuating over a solid rhythm section, funky keys and dirty electric wailings”. Holy Moly.
We’re opening the night with our originals set at 8:30pm. We’ll be followed by Mya Wallace and then Alone With Tiger, with DJ Saul Knight getting amongst it too. Apparently, he’s “got more soul than a sock with a hole”. You’ll find us all upstairs in the swish band room of Collingwood’s Grace Darling Hotel, and entry is only $5 at the door.
Here’s Alone With Tiger’s demo, to prepare you for the experience:
This weekend ends our album release tour, in cosy Kyneton and cool Collingwood.
On Friday May 23rd, 6:30-8:30pm, we’ll be enjoying the open fires at The Chairmakers Wife. It’s a reverse BYO bar, where you can bring your own food, and buy a glass or bottle of their local wines, ciders or beers. Entry is free.
On Saturday May 24th, in the basement of The Grace Darling Hotel, we’ll have a top-notch set from our friend Suzie Dickinson, and then we’ll play 2 sets: Firstly, our favourite covers and then, our mostly-originals album Here Comes The Love, ‘cover-to-cover’ as it were.
Suzie Dickinson is an award-winning singer and songwriter. Likened to Rikki Lee Jones, Michelle Shocked and The Waifs, Suzie’s trio takes you through stories of street life, secret lovers, madness and survival.
The night’s running times are:
9:30pm – Suzie Dickinson trio
10:30pm – Our 60s and 90s covers
11:30pm – Our album set
Doors open at 9pm. Entry is $10. Here Comes The Love will be available to buy from us for $20 OR, if you’d like to learn the words in advance, you can listen or buy it online here!
