Firstly thanks to all who came along to the Sydney Festival show to see The Blackeyed Susans (with strings). Sensational to see a full house and an aural pleasure to have string arrangements augmenting the songs. Truly wonderful, thanks KB..!

Next stop Perth. I've again been invited to sing with The Triffids who are performing at Perth Festival along with many other incredible acts. It's been several years since I've had the opportunity of joining the band and I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be a big night, allocation exhausted ... but for those who have tickets I'll see you there at Chevron Gardens on Mon Feb 15.

Prior to this mammoth event I'm slotting in a solo show at Fremantle Arts Centre as part of their series of free Sunday summer concerts in their grounds and gardens on Valentine's Day. Support comes from off-kilter protopunk band The Shops. Details here.

One more show to mention and that's back in Melbourne at a venue I'm still yet to step into but I've only heard good things. It's the grand old dame of Fairfield, The Grandview Hotel at 429 Heidelberg Rd on Saturday February 20. Tickets can be purchased here. Dinner and show tickets are also available by phoning The Grandview on 9489-8061.

Thanks to those who have come along to gigs. 

Here's a little video the people at MOTH put together when I was down in Red Hill earlier in the year, with my pooch Booboo and musical pal Charlie Owen lending a hand on the dobro.
