Join us at Gasoline Pony in Marrickville for an evening of acoustic music and chat from some frankly friggin awesome solo musicians. The whole night will be filmed and recorded for a podcast.
This is our second live record and will feature
The Nature Strip – John E and Pete Marley
John and Pete were once of the band Warmer, but have now made a wonderful second album under the name The Nature Strip called Presents, which is pop bliss. John also runs the label China Pig, a great new label putting out many of my favourite records in the last few years.
Katie’s second album is Victim Or The Heroine, which hints at some of the journey she took in the lead up. She’s sung with Paul Kelly, and has courted Nashville, but her new album sees her expanding and reaching past the country folk tag.
The Coolites – Simon Gibson & Nana
Simon Gibson is one of the best drummers in Sydney (and I’d say anywhere). Life took Simon on a journey to Vietnam for several years. Isolated from the songwriters he usually plays with, Simon wrote a remarkable number of songs that make up the album Caravan Park Summers (released last year) and the new EP All Best Are Off.
All the artists will play acoustically and then I will ask them to talk about their new albums, their inspirations, aspirations possibly inebriations.
We’re banking up some episodes, and will be launching the podcast in September.
Here’s the Facebook Event if you’re Interested.
