We’ve thrown together a last minute show at Googies Lounge tomorrow night (Tues 2nd Nov).
It’ll be great to play with a few of the folks I’ve met on this trip: Ann Driscoll and Masters of the Unicorns.
Over the coming days I’ll be traveling and performing with my good friend David Dondero throughout the Midwest of the US. He’s one of the best songwriters alive, I’m not kidding! It’s a lesson for me to watch him sing each night. Check out the dates on the site here in case we’re in your midst.
My tour with Billy Bragg in various US cities starts today! Come one and all. Here are the dates:
Cedar Cultural Center
Opening for Billy Bragg
River Forest, IL
Ann Arbor, MI
The Orange Peel
I put this in my last mailout….
“I’m in the middle of the usual bizarre period of interviews, confessing to strangers my innermost thoughts and feelings. After a while it can get a bit abstract as you answer similar questions over and over. I thought it might be nice if you guys have questions I could answer? If you do please email email@example.com with the subject line “A QUESTION FOR DARREN” and I’ll try and answer them over the next month and post the answers on my website somewhere. Just put your name and where you live.”
We’ve got a band together! We’ll be traveling to a town near you to play you songs for the new album ‘I Will Love You at All’
There’s yours truly (Darren) on vocals and guitar. Cory Gray is back for his 6th time in Australia to play keyboards and trumpet. The Lucksmith’s Mark Monnone is joining us on bass duties. We have a brand new drummer who goes by the name of Steph Hughes. She sings great too. And lastly Shelley Short, as well as opening each show, is singing and playing guitar with us.
Come along and say hello.
I’ve gone craft crazy and built a Diorama of the new album cover. It even has interactive buttons: push them and see what happens. I had many visits to Jaycar Electronics to learn about wiring.
Go and see it:
Polyester Fitzroy in Melbourne

Here’s some songs I played live in Portland, OR earlier this year whilst there recording the album:
