Back online, Antipodean Screams, etc.

Well, we are back at last.
After a fraught week of moving house, getting a black eye (don't ask) and changing net service providers. Phew.
Lots to come- in the interim, have you heard this yet?

Just out on Off The Hip, 37 storming tracks. Get some!

the return of La Femme

Yes, yes, I know the Celibate Rifles are in town this weekend, playing with the Double Agents at the Corner, and, yes I know that Sixfthick are playing their last Melbourne show before their European tour at the Rob Roy, but for my money there is only one show worth going to- the return of a rejuvenated La Femme.
I never saw them live back in their heyday, so I'm really looking forward to it. More details here at the I94 Bar. If you can't make the show, at least have a listen to the recently reissued album.

Thanks to Ian & Stuart for giving me that intro para, too.

Things to do

On Friday, Us v. Them features Pets With Pets,Children Collide and Witch Hats, whose debut album, "Cellulite Soul" is now due out in January. Pushed back from September for very good reasons that don't need to be discussed here. If I had an advance copy, I wouldn't talk about that, either.
Roxanne Parlour can be hard to find-here's a flashy little map, to go with the flashy handbill:

On Saturday, Gimme Shelter hits the Exford. A garage special, apparently.

Will that do? I've got a ton of work to get through, me.

oh Suzi Q...

Hmmm, not sure what's on this weekend, but I've got a date for Monday.
3RRR and Readings are delighted to present Suzi Quatro. Join us and the infamous Suzi as she shares her stories. Her book – Unzipped tells of the good times, the bad times and the crazy times. This is a rare opportunity to meet one of the original rock chicks!

Monday 10 September, 6.30pm
3RRR Performance Space
221 Nicholson Street, Brunswick East.
Tickets $5.00, includes a glass of wine.
Tickets strictly limited, available only from Readings Carlton shop.

From her first band, the Pleasure Seekers and their classic "What A Way To Die", through to her glory years at RAK, it all sounds good to me.
