RADIO BROADCAST #390
Fanatic! Backstage at the Tivoli for my second night here in Brisbane, Australia. The shows have been going well and the weather has been fantastic. A few days ago, we were up in Darwin, that was hot and humid. Down here in Brisbane, it’s much cooler but still humid. It was raining slightly when we got into the venue.
Road Manager Ward and I have been hitting the record stores with everything we’ve got and I will get some of this newly found music into our December shows.
Speaking of December, I just got word from a Pere Ubu representative that the band will be in Los Angeles on December 09. If I weren’t onstage myself at Largo, I would be there. We will get some Pere Ubu on for our 12-04-16 broadcast to remind you L.A. area Fanatics about the show for sure.
Here is info on the show, looks like it shouldn’t be missed: http://www.theecho.com/event/1265085-pere-ubu-coed-jail-songs-los-angeles/
Below, you will see all the great jams that we have lined up for you. A lot of Australian music. Wonder how that happened.
I hope by now, you have gotten your Dinosaur Jr. and Thee Oh Sees vinyl of their latest releases. Fantastic the both of them. No excuse not to get the Alex Cameron re-release of Jumping the Shark.
I hope you enjoy the show. Speaking of shows, I will be in USA starting in early October for a lot of ‘em, all the way until the end of the year.
Keep the music playing and STAY FANATIC!!!
