Sample Image...  Pick it up

 

 

 


What else? Hang, on..... I will tell you in a minute or two – my chicken soup is steaming frantically on the stove!

Right, where was I? Oh Yeah:  Amber Joy and the Holy Men are off to a festival in Balranald on the weekend of October 10.   It is called the festival of the five nurgules or something… Actually, go here: http://www.5riversoutbackfestival.com.au/festival-program ... For more info; it looks pretty good.
If you are too fukn lazy to go have a look at the website I went and got some stuff for you. Here:

Balranald's 5 Rivers Outback Festival 2015

Sample ImageThe Festival, inaugurated  in 2010,  celebrates all that is wonderful about living in a rural and outback NSW community that is surrounded by five of the most iconic river systems in NSW, and for one, it is the longest river in Australia.  These 5 Rivers are The Murray River, The Murrumbidgee River, The Lachlan River, The Wakool River and The Edward River.

There is heaps of stuff going on over three days but here is a grab of the music program for Saturday October 10.

The chicken soup is going pretty good, by the way; I have dumped in some turmeric and five spice – I like the light Asian undertone that gives – and some finely chopped ginger (I am still trying to get rid of left-over flu bugs). Anyway, back to this other shit.

Fundraiser for Daisy’s family – Rock Of Ages

 
Sample ImageIt’s not that long ago we lost the great SA music champion and icon Daisy Day. Now, the state’s rock royalty are plugging in their guitars to help Day’s wife Annette, who’s facing her own health battles.
Annette, who gave up her career to act as Day’s carer for the past decade, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, prompting the likes of The Angels, Glenn Shorrock, Russell Morris, Brian Cadd, John Schumann, Swanee, The Masters Apprentices and others to join forces to put on a night of music and mateship dubbed Rock of Ages to raise money to support Annette and her two boys, Mitchel and Lachlan
David Day’s Rock of Ages takes place on Tuesday, October 13, at Thebarton Theatre. Tickets are on sale at  ticketmaster.com.au …  with all proceeds going to the Day family.

DEEP SOUTH ROOTS, BLUES & FOLK FESTIVAL

RETURNING FOR IT'S FOURTH YEAR - NOV 19-22

  Sample ImageIn what is becoming a welcome tradition, Deep South - Blues, Roots and Folk - Festival is set to take over Adelaide iconic hotel The Gov for two days and four nights at the end of November. For the fourth year running, The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel entirely transforms into a fully-fledged festival with music stages throughout for Saturday and Sunday and delivers a stellar line up of local and interstate performers.

Headed by Australian blues guitar genius Ray Beadle, who will treat festival goers to two different performances over the weekend, the Deep South - Blues, Roots and Folk - Festival hosts The Backsliders fresh from a tour of the East Coast and the exclusive reformation of Adelaide soul/blues legends Double Whammy.

Three sister events are tagged for the Thursday and Friday including the charismatic Fiona Boyes releasing her new album on the Thursday evening as a limited seated “exclusive performance”.

Friday Nov 20 hosts the return of the sell-out hit Women Sing The Blues with Ursula White, Jan Preston’s Boogie Circus (NZ) and Zkye.

Festival goers can buy a weekend pass for the Saturday and Sunday at a discounted rate or purchase tickets separately for each day, including the bonus events on Thursday and Friday evenings.

WingNut previews the new Stieggersen Larsenbersengerner story book, straight from terrifyingly scary ABBAland, which re-introduces the character Lisbeth Salad-dodger in:
