Newtown Workers Club

This may be old news but The Rob Roy has new owners and will be renamed 'Newtown Workers Club' which I don't get as it's in Fitzroy maybe the Fitzroy Workers Club would be a better name. The new owner is Jerome Borazio, the man behind St Jerome's, Sister Bella and Happy Palace. From what I read in the Age on Monday, it will be more of a restaurant and have some gigs later at night. Hopefully this will not be like what happen to the Punters turning into Bimbo Deluxe.

I just found this music website RCRD LBL via a few different links. It has plenty of free MP3 tracks and Artist/Label information is good.

Gilles Peterson at Brown Alley

Brown Alley 1/1

Potts of Carlton Draught $4 and Cascade Light Stubies $7(whats with that?)

Brown Alley or as I like to say the Pub on the Corner of King and Lonsdale Street, where sometimes you enter via Brown Alley. I really don’t know why this place is called Brown Alley, apart from this back door entry; it seems like some sort of gimmick.

At the start as I walked in I really felt like the odd man out as it was really clubby, and I don’t really do the club scene. A lot of people were out of it, very much a bunch of slow disco dancing zombies.

I was really disappointed by the bad sound of Brown Alley, it seemed to have way to much base, which meant the music lost a lot of it subtle qualities.

Platinum Pied Pipers, were good, the sound didn’t do them justice. They were a modern rhythm and blues type band, but from the future. Also they had a backing tape of female’s singers which would have been great to have live. Also would of like to see them in another venue, such as Northcote Social Club or even the Thornbury Theatre.

Gilles Peterson played an eclectic range of tunes playing a hug array of music from Jazz, Soul, Drum’n’Bass, twostep, reggae, disco and other mind boggle sounds. I was a little scared of the MC that came with Gilles, that he was going to be being a saw thumb by doing some awkward shout outs and singer, but he seemed to fit in, or maybe this was due to the bad sound. Giles went over an 1 or was it close to 2 hour and was worth the $50 odd dollars entry.
