Dear Valued Reader…
As you may know, I have been playing guitar and bass with Melbourne pop disciples ‘The Steinbecks‘ for about 6 years. We’ve played gigs in 40 degree weather, and in pouring rain. We’ve played to crowds of hundreds, and to crowds of one. We’ve even played a gig on the same day one of the Steinbeck Children was born.
But never. Never. Never Ever have we played at Melbourne’s hippest post-Punters Club venue – The Northcote Social Club.
Friday May 11th, we will be playing at the Northcote Social Club, for your listening pleasure. It’s a great venue, and smoke-free – you’ll love it.
There’s more to it than this though. We’ve also managed to secure the services of Matt Sigley (yes, that Sigley), who will be opening the night with his Daytime Frequency. Then you can catch one of Melbourne’s hottest pop icons – Tali White, and The Guild League.
And then there’s us, The Steinbecks. We’ll be launching our new album – ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’. This is our latest album, and by far my proudest moment with the band. I’m stoked with the songs we’ve pulled together for this one. From My Morning Jacket, through Michael Jackson to Midnight Oil, we’ve drawn on all manner of influences to create something special – the most rockingest Steinbecks album to date. You can hear some tracks, and see the video to our single –’The Doppler Effect’, on our myspace page, now.
So mark it on yr calendar, and come on down to The Northcote Social Club this Friday, May 11th, to experience the wonder that is The Steinbecks.>
If you’re lucky, you might even hear a Love song….
