Ross Wilson & the Urban Legends – Celeb Cricket Match For Charity

Sunday 4th February 2007
Batting for the Battlers –
Celebrity Charity Cricket Match

Batting for the Battlers is St Kilda’s annual Celebrity Charity Cricket Match. Once again, the famous and the infamous will pick their sides and take to the field (this year at the Ross Gregory Oval in St Kilda from 11am onwards) to raise money for St Kilda’s Sacred Heart Mission.

The match will include Joel Edgerton, John Jarrett, Gary Sweet, Dermott Brereton, James Brayshaw, Dave Hughes, William McInnes, Stephen Curry, Russell Gilbert, Brett Tucker, Shane Bourne, Damien Oliver, Robert Taylor, Brett Tucker, Des Dowling, David Lightfoot, Steve Le Marquand, Asha Keddie, Steve Whittaker aka The King of Tonga, Geoff Morrell, Aaron Pedersen, Michael Veitch and many more.

They play in two teams Veg Out (named for St Kilda’s renowned community garden) vs The Vineyard (named for St Kilda’s iconic bar/restaurant). Those not taking to the field will take turns on the commentary mics, cracking jokes and sending up the players, making for an incredibly entertaining and hilarious day.

Ross & the Urban Legends will play at half-time, and Nick Barker and Phil Ceberano will play sets at half-time and after the match. Before the match, David Hobson will sing the National Anthem backed by the Choir of Hard Knocks.

Nova 100.3 FM’s Casanovas will broadcast live crosses from the ground. There will also be a half-time auction of goods donated by St Kilda retailers plus the painting used for the poster/billboards by Archibald Prize winner Lewis Miller.

Sunday 4th February 2007
11am onwards

TILBROOK TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON!

Hiya Glenn Fans,

Watch this space for Glenn Tilbrook’s Australian Tour dates and info about his new Australian EP which I’m listening to it at the moment and it is FAB.

Mr Tilbrook will be here to play three gigs only – 1 in Melbourne, 1 in Sydney and 1 in Brisbane. Those of you who have seen Glenn’s awesome live performance or caught his episode of RocKwiz with Linda Bull KNOW that you don’t want to miss the former Squeeze-man doing the business!

Perhaps we’ll get lucky and get a sneak preview of the new studio album he’s working on too, if we ask very nicely.

Fingers crossed!

More info TBA.

Cheers,

xKaren

16MM LAUNCH WRAP AND GIG TONITE!

16MM LAUNCH WRAP AND GIG Saturday 4 November

Yo Music Lovers:

Here’s a message from 16 Millimetre:

Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate the EP launch. It was bigger, louder and more ravishing than anyone could have imagined. Special thanks to; Jess The East’s in-house engineer who took the brakes off and let the band explore the full intensity of 16mm’s sound, Xavier 16mm’s lighting tech inspired an outbreak of seizures and Ben the miscellaneous merch boy who recalled Tom’s past excursions in This Machine.

Oh yeah… and thanks to the anonymous person who grabbed the official band-cam for filming the night. Anyone with a fetish for Cara’s ankles and her delicate pedal action can get 20 minutes of uncensored footage. It’s a little disturbing. If your memory of the night is a little shady, virtual memories are now up at http://www.myspace.com/sixteenmillimetre.

This Saturday 4th November, 16 Millimetre is giving you the chance to prove that Australians are not disengaged from the Real Issues and that political fights are not solely reserved to men in flannies who like sausage sizzles. It’s time to ..Rock For Your Rights At Work.. with fellow belligerents David Bridie, D.Rogers, The Disappointments, Sime Nugent, Monique Brumby & Bom. Nov 4 at the Grand Central in Melbourne town. 16mm are on early 8.15pm.

So this Saturday rally your support, throw your fist up in the sky and bring a long neck. If fact if anyone who comes actually brings an empty Melbourne Bitter long neck they will get a 16mm badge and the first one through the door will get a drink on the band.

Pari & 16mm ***http://www.myspace.com/sixteenmillimetre

DADDY COOL AT THE BIG DAY OUT?

DADDY COOL AT BIG DAY OUT? WHAT THE?

Dear Cool watchers,

Thanks for the phone calls and the SMS messages. I heard Triple J’s Daddy Cool Big Day Out rumour, too – but have no idea whether or not it is true!

Friday at the Deni Ute Muster headlining gig the fans were frenzied & ecstatic – there was crowd surfing and everything – a first for the band, at least in this century! The most amazing thing was the kids – they were totally into it!

Just goes to show that good music is timeless – just like Daddy Cool!

The band will be touching down in Melbourne any minute now after their Deni/Narooma gigs this weekend and I shall investigate Big Day Out rumours…Who knows? Maybe they’ll do an all ages gig! Stay tuned and watch Ross Wilson’s website too at www.rosswilson.com.au & www.myspace.com/daddycooltheband!

Cheers,

Karen
