The night is gonna be called ‘Pony Tales’. Here’s the blurb doing the cyber-rounds:
“A midweek session of alt.country and folk at one of Sydney’s best venues, with your
heroes: Luke Collings & Greasy Lake, Mysterious Universe Band, Alister Marshall.
Music will kick off around 7:30, and given that it’s the Pony there will obviously be
an excellent selection of eatables and drinkables available.”
25 July 2017: ANNANDALE HOTEL
Details to land real soon. And here they are:
6 May 2017: BEATS, EATS, DRINKS: 36 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe, Sydney. This might be actually called BMW Bar these days (very Mysterious) but anyhow get on down. We’re on with 60s garageistes The Flipped Out Kicks.
16 March 2017: PETERSHAM BOWLING CLUB
Supporting Luke Collings & Greasy Lake and Echo Deer. $10.
We like how the club bills this one: “Not The Usual Americana Gig: A night of alt.country that draws a little outside the lines. Three of the best and more individual bands on the Sydney scene come together to give you something a bit different, a bit cosmic, a bit funny, a bit more than sad songs about trucks (though we love those too).”
2 March 2017: ANNANDALE HOTEL, Sydney
8pm. No cover charge. Duo mode (mandolin, guitar).
22 February 2017: TOWN HALL HOTEL (next to Newtown Railway Station)
We’re on at 7.20pm precisely. No cover charge. Mosey on down!
27 January 2017: PETERSHAM BOWLING CLUB
Supporting the ultra-groovy Flipped Out Kicks and the Resurrection Men, who sound like a real underground act. Should be a rip-roarer so don’t be strangers! ‘Garage rock and even some hillbilly stylings’ says the Bowlo blurb. Beam yourself down. From 8.30pm. $10. We’re temporarily reverting to our three-piece lineup, the norm just a few months back, for this one (sans bass).
21 December 2016: TOWN HALL HOTEL, Newtown
Join us for the Summer Solstice – it’s the year’s longest day so make a night of it! No cover charge. On stage 9pm. And after us, Assyrian worldbeat band Azadoota hit the stage so it’ll be quite (not quiet) a night!

David casts all mandolins aside to go solo on acoustic guitar (altho’ billed below as Mysterious Universe) supporting the ‘spaghetti-western, raga-billy boogie’ (now that’s definitely a cup of Mysterious Universe tea) of Paul Hayward & The Sidekicks.
