Unusual Gigs ‘R Us

How do you follow the first ever gig in Mexico?  You can’t.

Unless…. You play at 8am on a Thursday morning amongst a sea of meatballs and an Abba cover band.  That’s the only way.

So, armed with that information, I knew my mission.

On 3rd of November at 8am, you will be able to witness the first ever Australian birds in branches show as part of the IKEA Tempe store opening party.  You and anyone else who is really keen for swedish storage.  My keyboard (who was born in Stockholm) could not be more excited.

It will also be the first ever ‘electronic’ birds in branches show, as between the EP finalising I have acquired another swedish beauty (whom Nai has lovingly named the ‘octopus’).  I am filling it with little pieces of my songs for live triggering and mangling.  Sweden is the source of so much good right now.

While it doesn’t mention me in the facebook event, I can assure you I am one of numerous additional surprises:


Come on down if you would like to say hello.  Or if you would rather not say hello, but really need a home for those knick knacks on the table.  See you there in either of those cases.  Rock and roll.

    I wonder if your next gig could be mid-flight on the way to the UK or potentially on top of something similar to space probe. Or maybe underwater? How will you keep topping these?

    That is just fantastic. Maybe you could deliver your EP in flatpack with software on how to put together the singles. But really looking forward to hearing you compete with ABBA – live! It’s in the diary, so save me some meatballs.

  4. First 2 comments from UK based friends eh? Maybe I will get to play a gig over there one day…. Maybe in a distillery? 😉

    Flatpack CD is genius. I kind of am planning that by accident actually…. But perhaps I should now add IKEA style cartoons of that faceless man showing you how to put it in your cd player. Otherwise how will people know what to do?
