Last Show 2014

Last show went great. Best of the ‘season’ & great way to finish up for the year. Campbell on bagpipes. Been a hectic week since with Christmas & Boxing Day. Thanks again to Deano for yet another show pic.

Lazy Sundays at 208

Great day yesterday for the 2nd last Sunday of the year. Brendan Young our special guest artist. Weather was awesome. Had a few more people drop in this week.

This Sunday will be our last for the year, doubling as our Christmas break-up celebration. Come down, say hello (& seeya next year). Doors open 1pm. Entry’s free, drinks are cheap, On Fires playing from 2 til 5, special guest artists joining us, party pies & I’m told a big Christmas hamper raffle (generously donated by Kim Cujo). It’ll be a fantastic arvo this Sunday – 208 Johnston St Collingwood.

208 Sunday Show – feat. Olivia Kate

Not a great pic from last Sunday’s show at 208, but guest artist Olivia Kate was a surprise talent. Just outa high school, this might have been her first show in a bar/pub. She was great, played a short set, crowd didn’t want her to finish, we got a couple more encore songs.

It was a slow day, bad weather not doing any favours. Max & I played in front of the stage later in the arvo to a faithful handful of friends who helped enthusiastically on percussion.

Sunday No. 2 – Cruisy Beatboxin’

Had another great day yesterday. Awesome to have so many people join us for the 2nd Sunday arvo. Things were a bit more laid back, the heat slowing everything down a little. Housemate Hayden jumped up on the mic & gave us an impressive beat-box performance. We think he should have a permanent Sunday spot in the line-up.  Scotty’s sausage sizzle went down a treat as usual. We might bring back the chook raffle this weekend.

Looking forward to this Sunday. Couple of guest artists joining us, including singer/guitarist & looper, Olivia Kate. Take a look at her YouTube clips. Join us for another great cruisy arvo in the new venue.

Fires out.
