If, as I suspect might be the case, the recent trend of these newsletters, the established trend of thesenewsletters, and opening gambit of this particular newsletter are combining to give the impression that you'll have to wade through a haystack of indulgent, flowery language to find the needle of actual relevant information, then you, sir and/or madam....may have a point. Although let us never forget that brevity comes at a price, and as my Grandfather used to tell me, "Brevity comes at a price". The price? He never said. He was Canadian.
That was all haystack, but I'll save you some time and flag the needle for you now. Here are the three key needles, before I haystack my way to the conclusion.
- Bennetts Lane, this weekend. Intimate show.
- The Toff in Town, live recording, double headline with The Nymphs. Tix and details here
- Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra in July, details here
We're back at Bennetts Lane this Saturday 6th for an 'intimate' show. It's intimate because we'll swap sticks for brushes, electric for upright bass, keyboard for grand piano, trumpet for trumpet, and Tobes will play nude.
The Toff in Town Live Recording
These two shows are two of our biggest for the year. If you like this band, and all evidence points to either this fact or Sarah signing you up to this mailing list against your will and without your knowledge or consent (something she's trying to give up), then I recommend catching one of these. We're putting everything we have into them. They're being recorded and filmed, and I'll almost certainly ask the audience to sing some bits. The shows will feature a set from The Nymphs, a set from The Tiger & Me, and a collaborative set, including this sort of thing (I don't know who the 12-year old on piano is but it definitely isn't me).
Between the two shows above, we're sneaking in a little east-coast tour, including a few Sydney shows, Canberra, Brisbane and Wollongong.
Thank you for your time. I'll leave you with a photo of my nephew 'being Tobes'. He is one of Tobes's biggest fans. I quote "uncle Ade is my uncle, and Tobes, well, he's my prime minister".
