Just a couple of notes about teh awesome aussie music scene. two highlights of recent times, and both occurred last week. The first was seeing up and coming aussie singer/songwriter Josh Pyke at the Grace Emily for a free gig on a warm Thursday night here in Adelaide and the second was Screamfeeder at the brilliant Jade Monkey on Saturday night.
The Josh Pyke gig was a spuir of the moment thing and we were rewarded with abrilliant 75 min set interactive banter with the crowd and Josh waging war on Powderfinger's Bernie Fanning! The Grace Emily is an amazing pub, fiulled with kitsche objects and memorabilia - standing room only with cold beer on tap - brilliant.
The Screamfeeder show was of equal quality - held at the 'home-like' atmosphere of the Jade Monkey. The band has been around and around, and their pop-rock stylings never fail in producing a fun gig. These guys & a girl are the nicest staying round for a chat and a hug. Brilliant.
