Gig Hopping

Several Sundays ago (11/4) some friends and I went for a bit of a gig hop around Fitzroy area, it's a great way to say goodbye to the weekend, band start fairly early and get you out of the house to stop thinking about the coming working week.

James McCann & Jacky Winter

The Old Bar on Tuesday 6th of April, Free

 A lone guitar before James McCann started playing (you can find this picture at redbubble)

James McCann played half a set just instrumental and other half by himself plus his own vocals. His instrumentals are great, painting a picture with the use of a guitar. Play with him for the first half was Rui Pereira, who had an exhibition upstairs and also better known as guitarist in The Drones.

Jacky Winter (Phil Gionfriddo from Dynamo)

I didn't catch Your Animal.

Labour in Vain

Van Walker Duo, back on 27th of March at Labour in Vain.

Sam Simmons – Fail

Sam Simmons – Fail, $25, at The Bosco, Saturday 3 April 2010

Saw Sam Simmons on Saturday, very funny man at a extreme pace, the show was about failing in life. Full of music, singing and plenty of slide show action. Was sporting a mo, hopefully his filming another season of Urban Monkey as Murray Foote.
