Attended the Chris Wilson fundraiser at the Corner Hotel last night. One hell of a line-up came out in support of a music icon.

Many of Wilson's previous bands reformed for the night. Harem Scarem, Three Kings, Spidermen, Crown of Thorns and the Heinous Dog Blues Band all hit the stage. Shae O'Mara, Kerri Simpson, Jeff Lang and Tim Rogers turned up as guests throughout the night. Each of Chris' sons also played/sang in honour of their father.

If I had a bit more cash, I would have bid on some of the items put up for auction. There were signed items and a few music / concert / merch packs up for grabs. In the end I grabbed a copy of his latest album, featuring the great man on every instrument.

I saw Courtney Barnett a couple of nights back up in Brisbane. Excellent as always. With Kurt Vile playing BF, I am kind of hoping she might get invited again, and we might see them share the stage. I've also seen Screaming Jets twice in very short succession. I can't see them playing BF, but they're a great live band.

Pretty envious. Sometimes wish I still lived up that way (SEQ), as it would be so much easier and less expensive to get to these shows.

Hoping that our own Forth Valley Blues Festival, just before Byron's Bluesfest, grows a bit more.

The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news...."
