When The Man Comes Around

After weeks and weeks of being unwell I think I’ve finally kicked this infection and I’m looking forward to being able to really enjoy the weekend. After a little bit of retail therapy last night I’ve got a pretty new dress on today to kick off the weekend and I’m looking forward to a quiet night in with the man tonight, complete with home cooked lamb roast – gee is he lucky!

But the big thing I’m looking forward to this weekend is the 8th Annual Johnny Cash Tribute. Another of Lori Lee’s well-loved and long standing events, the JCT is always a great night. We all know how much I LOVE Johnny Cash and the line-up this year is shaping up for a great night as always. No doubt there will be many a sing-a-long and I can’t wait! Due to my illness it’s been a little while since I've blogged about a gig and I realised how much I’ve missed writing about them so you can be sure that come Monday I’ll have a post up my sleeve packed with all the highlights of the night.

If you’re looking for something to do in Brisbane this weekend I suggest coming along. The Morningside RSL is a great venue with a huge dance floor, cheap drinks and delicious counter meals plus it’s also kid friendly! Celebrating the music of the Man in Black, some of Brisbane’s best rockabilly performers will cover all the old favourites of this iconic music legend.

For just a taste of what you can expect, watch this video of Mitchy Mayhem of the Mayhem County Boys covering ’25 Minutes To Go’ at last year’s JCT. This video really doesn’t do the performance justice because Mitchy brought the house down! It was an amazing performance, one of the best I’ve ever seen – of Mitchy or the cover of the song and people are STILL talking about this performance! You can’t hear it at the end of the video but I was there and the room went WILD! I just can’t wait for tomorrow night!

this looks awesome

An old school friend made a comment on my recent Buddy Holly tribute album review and I've ended up burning a pretty comprhensive collection of his for her mum. I've snuck in a copy of Johnny's at Folsom Prison album because I don't think she would have ever heard it, and everyone should listen to it at least once in their lives.

Looking forward to the concert review!
