20 Years of ‘CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD’: A Tribute To The Music Of LUCINDA WILLIAMS @ Django
Mar 1 all-day

rs-214806-lucindsa6pm doors, 7pm show

Lucinda Williams’s “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road” was released 20 years ago, at a time when the new “alternative country” movement was taking shape and refining its style and purpose. This breakthrough album, by an artist that didn’t fit into the standard mould of what it was to be a ‘country artist’ despite being acknowledged within the country community as a significant songwriting and performing talent, became an important ‘ground zero’ marker point for the “Americana” scene and continues to inspire artists and define what it takes to BE an artist in that genre.

“20 years of Car Wheels” is a celebration of that album, and some of Lucinda Williams’s enviable catalogue. Led by one of Australia’s best Alt.Country voices, Katie Brianna, and producer/multi instrumentalist Michael Carpenter, and featuring vocalists Brielle Davis (Not Good With Horses) and Peta Caswell, and a house band featuring Carpenter, Casey Atkins, Mike Rix and Russell Crawford, the show is a celebration of not only an important artist and album but also a genre that continues to grow in Sydney and Australia.

Lenka is an Australian singer/songwriter, formerly of the critically acclaimed band Decoder Ring, who has been releasing solo albums and touring worldwide for the last decade. She is best know for her songs The Show, Trouble Is A Friend and Everything At Once, which have all had wide international success, especially in the world of film and TV placements. For this show Lenka and band will be revisiting her early work as well as playing new songs and covers from the twin EPs.’

“Lenka’s gentle tone wraps snugly around folk electronic minimalism and flirts with far grander, sweeping pop… Blue skied optimism, fragments of world beat fun, all bouncy and up-beat, glossy and positive.” Jonny Nail, Rolling Stone, 2017.

Miriam Lieberman is known not only for her unmistakable voice and songwriting, but for playing the 21 string West African harp, known as the kora. Miriam draws her influences from far and wide – having most notably spent long periods of time studying traditional music in West Africa.

Her songs seamlessly blend African influences with folk infused melodies. In essence, they are a collection of stories, beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her emotive voice.

VINCE JONES (SOLD OUT!)

Vince Jones6pm doors, 7pm show

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian Jazz singers since his emergence in the jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 70s and early 80s. His 20 album, international career has never hesitated in its musical evolution – a career played in the moment. He is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. From Iris DeMent’s folk “Our Town” to his original piano heavy, new age “Wonderworld”, he comments, sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in, from an unashamedly idealistic perspective.

His intuitive readings of the Great American Songbook are sensitively true to composer and artist. He is a wonderful trumpet player as his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety. He plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in early days. A brief solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion. Particular about the musical company he keeps, he continues to enjoy playing with the best jazz musicians the country has to offer. He is, quite simply, a national treasure.

The Vampires are trailblazers for a generation of creative talent from Sydney, having gained critical attention worldwide in the jazz community and beyond.

Having developed their music through the band’s 14 years of touring, travelling, and recording together, the band has found a recognisable sound that is as much the sum of the individuals in the group as it is a part of Australian jazz.

Louis brings the core of his band The Art of Darkness to light in a new and exciting combo, as we premiere the LT3, and it’s combined experience of 100 years of live playing, right here in Marrickville. This is something you are unlikely to see on a regular basis.

Louis, with his trademark baritone vocals and blues/rock piano style, combines with John Maddox’ unique virtuosity on Bass and Colin Watson’s thoroughbred Guitar expertise and feel, to bring Louis’ repertoire into a dangerous new place. You may remember Louis from his dozen “solo” albums and pioneering improv ensembles like Paris Green, or his thunderous big bands, such as The Aspersion Caste. He has also been a featured pianist on recordings of such legendary Australian acts as Died Pretty, Beasts of Bourbon, Laughing Clowns, and Tex, Don & Charlie, and many others. In International circuits he is billed as the Rockpoet of The Night, and he is held in the same high esteem and written and filmed in the same publications and TV specials as his peers John Cale, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Tom Waits. UK Rolling Stone called him The Dark Giant.

He rarely plays in Australia, preferring to “ride on the tide and the wings of the wind”, as so much of his music alludes to, him being a full time sailor. After more than 2 years since The Art of Darkness last played, which filled The Factory Theatre in 2017 and 2015, this night will present a rare opportunity to catch Louis in an intimate and dynamic environment, where, keeping the band small and tight, each performance takes on it’s own life and direction, leaving all three players to leave the script, to allow them to take the music where it needs to go at that particular time. Louis Tillett, as a musician and a bandleader is synonymous with the Sydney Live and Underground music of the 80s, 90s and 00s. Come and find out why he is often touted as a National Living Treasure.

You are cordially invited to celebrate the lives of two fictional characters – The Sandman & Flacco 1994 – 2011, late of Triple J, Good News Week and SBS. Words cannot express their loss of life, laughter and basic income. They left no offspring, no will and no forwarding address. Together we can all suck the remaining life out of their tepid corpses. The characters are survived by the skin of their teeth, elevated toilet seats and the aged pension.

(No flowers please)

Steve “The Sandman” Abbott & Paul “Flacco” Livingston are back from the nether regions. In 2020 having waited a decade for a fitting tribute to appear, Steve and Paul are forced to exhume their own characters in this touching tribute to themselves. Don’t miss this rare chance to pay your respects before the scattered remains of The Sandman and Flacco.
Note: Please be gentle with the performers – no one wants to die at their own funeral…

“These two are comedy legends for a reason. Their art stands the test of time and remains just as brilliantly dry and absurd as it always was.”

“Flacco and Sandman are dead. Long live Flacco and Sandman.”

“Surprisingly musical and every bit better for it.”

“The show contains a sweetly heartfelt core.”

“Lot’s of laughs, nostalgia, and a couple of sad parts.”

GLENN SHORROCK
Oct 10 all-day

A Sharper Image7pm doors, 9pm show

With a career spanning over 40 years, Glenn Shorrock is one of the elder statesmen of Australian contemporary show business.

Born in England, Glenn migrated at the age of 10 to Adelaide in the mid-1950s. A self-confessed child of rock n roll, he began singing in 1962 with a vocal group called the Twilights.

Axiom with Brian Cadd followed shortly thereafter, with hits including Arkansas Grass and Little Ray of Sunshine. Axiom disbanded soon after with Glenn moving to London in 1970.

Late 1974, Glenn returned to Melbourne to help form Little River Band as lead singer. Managed by long time friend, Glenn Wheatley, Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit.

Glenn’s credentials extend to all fields of show business, notably in theatre and cabaret where he starred in Evita, The Rocky Horror Show, One for the Money, Go Cat Go and Two Up.

As a testament to his enduring talent he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame first in 1991 in his own right and again with The Little River Band in 2004.
