Gentle Ben And His Sensitive Side + Kim Salmon @ The Ding Dong Lounge

Having seen Sixfthick and Rollerball the night before, the weekend of Brisbane-In-Melbourne continues back at The Ding Dong Lounge with Gentle Ben And His Sensitive Side. And in a role reversal from last weekend in Brisbane, Kim Salmon (albeit playing solo and without The Surrealists) is supporting. Gentle Ben was showing no signs of the […]

Sixfthick @ Roxanne Parlour

Mr Rascal + Granite Lakes + Carry Nation @ QPAC

Nice little venue, with excellent sound and some pretty good lights; a nice change from the usual venue fare […]
