The End of 2011

We’re putting an exclamation mark onto the end to 2011 with a flurry of shows.
First of all a journey to North Queensland and back and then a series of my usual solo Xmas shows. Here’s where it’s happening:

Oxford picture palace

Music and Movie at the Oxford Picture Palace next Friday (9th Sept)! Starting at 9PM there’ll be an unplugged performance but yours truly followed by a movie I’ve chosen. I’ve spent months trying to acquire the rights to run ‘Wake In Fright’ but have had no luck with the Australian distributors. Instead we’ve found a print of one of my favourite Australian films from childhood: ‘The Man From Snowy River.’ If you’re into good old fashioned romance AND horses this could be a nice night out for you.
Tickets are available HERE

Coventry show

Last minute show added in Coventry, UK on the 7th August at Taylor John’s House. We’ll be playing with our friends This Frontier Needs Horses.

Weddings, parties, anything

I’m supporting these legends of folk rock on Friday 30th September at the Palace Hotel in Melbourne. It’s Grand Final Eve and if St Kilda have anything to do with it again it could prove to be an even more edgy and exciting show than they normally give. The band doesn’t really exist anymore but get back together from time to time for such special events.
Also, I’ll be joined onstage by my old touring buddy Bree Van Reyk on the drumkit. Good times.

European tour

Shelley Short, Steph Hughes and I will be playing a few scattered shows in Europe over the next couple of weeks leading up to End of the Road festival. We have a few days off here and there for sightseeing and swimming but if anyone has any ideas that might fit in we’re up for the challenge.
Please email my manager if you do….. matt@lookwhostouring.com
Some of these shows will be supported by Shelley Short, with Steph and I as her backing band.

we had a show booked but the promoter pulled (out as some promoters do) but we’re coming anyway and are trying to lock down another one. Even if we can’t get one we’ll just play in a park under a tree somewhere and post details on my website so you can come and listen.

SPECIAL EVENT
Oxford, ENGLAND
Ultimate Picture Palace
I’ll hopefully be presenting my favourite Australian Film
WAKE IN FRIGHT with a short acoustic performance
before the screening. I say hopefully as at the time of sending this mailout we’re still trying to clear the rights with the elusive Australian distributors. Please check back to my website in a week or so for details and ticket links. It’s also a very small space so get in early if you want to come. It’s also my Mums birthday and she’ll be there, and yes, I’m aware it’s not the best birthday film.

Egersund Folk Festival

Very happy to be invited back to Egersund festival in Norway for the second time. It’s held in a little fishing village on the west coast over 3 days and I’m playing on Friday 1st July. Am excited to see Herman Dune play again, plus Robin Hitchcock and Johnny (just got their new album) and of course see my Norwegian friends play too. The biggest coincidence is that half way through Joe Boyd’s biography ‘White Bicycles’ I find out he’s giving a lecture there!
