Love in Bright Landscapes fundraiser tonight!

Hello Friends,

Tonight, at The Corner Hotel, The Mime Set and myself are playing with the great Melbourne lineup of The Blackeyed Susans, Mick Thomas, Chuck Jenkins and The Diving Bell in a night that honours songwriter David McComb, frontman of seminal Australian band The Triffids.

Our friend Jonathan Alley (you may have caught him on RRR on Sunday afternoons) is making a labour-of-love documentary about David's life, work and influence and this gig is a fundraiser for the doco. All the acts are doing songs of or inspired by Dave McComb/The Triffids so it's a great introduction to McComb's body of work for the uninitiated and (hopefully) soulmusic for existing fans.

Tickets are $20 and it's an early one, starting from 6pm. The Corner has great food in the front bar if you're after dinner.

Sean's reading of David's work and his own poem about McComb were quite something. How to be funny, moving and eloquent all at the same time? Look no further my friends.
From one who was there....
