CMC Launch this Saturday – It’s a festival!

RiotACT sponsors The Canberra Musician’s Club are having their official launch on Saturday at the Albert Hall with no less a luminary than the Chief Minister Jon Stanhope himself coming to witness the birth.

The twelve hour, four stage extravaganza will feature a veritable who’s who of Canberra musical talent from a wide variety of genres.

The program is online for your perusal.

Highlights for mine are Fred Smith, the Haunted Attics, Smitten, The Ellis Collective, The Fuellers, Julia and the DSS, and the Cashews. But there’s a huge amount of great stuff there.

It’s going to be a big one. I’ll just have to record the rugby.

Dubba Rukki playing last will have the dance floor heaving.

UPDATED: And a huge boo to the In The Mix crowd who thought the CMC free standing signage would be improved by their posters.

Hope the CMC gig went well. I swung by in the afternoon and it was a rollicking good time. Look forward to future events.

I also went to the ITM gig and, some of you will be pleased to hear, the second stage was demolished by a 1:00am thunderstorm! So, the Gods agree with you – sign-jackin is bad karma and shall be punished! However, it was a pity because it pretty much destroyed the gig, and most of the few punters who made it there (twas a disappointing turnout) had left by 3am and thus missed out on James De La Cruz and Danielsan.

BTW, if you like good Aussie hip hop, check out both Dazed and Flawless (an up-and-coming Melbourne trio), and Roshambo and D’Opus – both top notch Aussie good-vibe hip hop acts. Props.

One of my mates used to do a good Rob Thomas impersonation. He would stuff a whole cigarette packet in his mouth and start singing matchbox 20 songs. It sounded just like him.

Is Matchbox 20 the most boring band you’ve ever heard? I mean seriously, their CDs seem to be one 45 minutes song.
