Headed to Melbourne today to play for the launch of the new Nespresso Aguila coffee machine. This thing is seriously deluxe! Cannot wait to see all my Melbourne mates and hopefully find the time to head to Bimbos to grab a $4 pizza (or 2, or 3...)
If this photo from my first gig with SOSUEME DJs is anything to go by - then tonight at Upstairs Beresford is going to be HUGE!
We are playing after a set by SNEAKY SOUND SYSTEM so I am sure that the place is going to be one big sweaty party. Here we gooooooo....
I will be doing my warm up stretches extra early, body is still aching from the tabel dancing pictured above.
I am very excited to be playing with SOSUEME DJs this Saturday at one of the funnest venues to play in Sydney - Upstairs Beresford.
I will be joining other Falcona lads Hayden (of Hansom and Cadillac) and Pat (Hobophonics) for what I can already tell will result in me feeling like half a human being on Sunday. YYYEEEOOOOAAAWW!!
So far this week I have already played a beautiful gig down on the water with this view! Nice.

Last week in the midst of Parklife madness Charlie Chux, Adam Bozetto, Alison Wilkes and I were joined by none other than Lykke Li and her backing singer Zhala, as we headed to Juniperina Juvenile Justice Centre for HEAPS DECENT.
As we waited for the workshop to begin I was lucky enough to witness Lykke and Zhala reminiscing about when they used to sing in gospel choirs, followed shortly by the two of them busting out Sister Act songs including The Eye Of The Sparrow!
With Lykke and Zhala's help, the girls in the workshop all ended up jumping on the mic and rapping some lyrics, and then all the girls sang a hook together to break up the verses (yes Lykke sang on the hook too!).
The following day I headed out there again, this time minus Lykke but plus Rowan Dix (a.k.a. Joyride) who provided a new group of girls with one of the sweetest beats I have heard in a long time. Again, by the end all the girls in the workshop had a turn on the microphone and came up with such a catchy hook I had it stuck in my head the whole trip home.
Can't wait to hear the finished versions of both songs soon...
We played our first Sydney show the other night at Kit & Kaboodle - I have never seen Kit soooo soo busy! There was a line outside for ages. I don't think they were there to see us - just long weekend madness. But it sure was nice to play to a packed room rather than 10 friends!
