DENNIS COMETTI & DAVE GRANEY…

PNScreen Shot 2015-06-17 at 6.44.30 PMWe’re absolutely delighted to announce today that our next live show is the stuff of footballing and musical dreams. Commentary colossus Dennis Cometti joins rock and roll’s cosmic boundary rider, Dave Graney at  The Corner Hotel in Richmond on Sunday the 16th of August for our next evening of footballing and musical conversation. The thought of this maverick combo on stage has always tickled our fancy, and we’re excited, delighted, and stoked that the fancy is finally being tickled. With two such unique and enormous talents together on stage it’s going to be a conversation for the ages.

As always, the night will be hosted by our very own Francis Leach, and we can’t wait.…

THE MAYOR & THE SAINT…

PresentationNight3ByCarbieWarbie008

Several weeks ago – okay, nearly two months ago – we held Presentation Night #3  featuring the outstanding talents of Cameron Ling and Paul Dempsey chatting about music, footy and life together with Francis Leach at The Corner Hotel in Richmond. Just as we’d hoped, it was a fantastic evening of reflection, conversation, music and generally good vibes both on and off the stage. One of our favourite writers Dugald Jellie reflected on the night on the wonderful Tiger Tiger blog not long after the show, and has very kindly allowed us to run his piece again here. This is great for two reasons: firstly, he’s a great writer with his own unique voice bringing a beautiful personal aspect to all of his writing; secondly, I’ve been halfway through writing about the night for nearly two months getting nowhere, and his piece is far better than anything I was ever going to come up with.

On the very same night we were enjoying the sterling work of Cameron Ling and Paul Dempsey on stage at The Corner Hotel this week, another lower-profile event was underway across town at the Crown Palladium. The AFL’s Hall of Fame committee must have been kicking themselves when they realised the scheduling mix-up that had led to them holding their event on the same night as we were holding our occasional music and footy shindig in Richmond.

I jest of course. Obviously we should have looked at the calendar a little more closely in the lead up to Presentation Night # 3, but somehow I think we were probably always going to appeal to slightly different audiences.…

SOMETHING FOR CATS…

We’re over the moon to announce that our next live show will bring together the exceptional talents of Mr Cameron Ling and Mr Paul Dempsey to the stage of  The Corner Hotel on Wednesday June 4th. To have the unofficial mayor of Geelong paired with Australia’s tallest front man is something of a dream come true for us, and we can’t wait.

Cameron Ling, as everyone knows, is a Geelong premiership captain and one of the greatest taggers to ever play the game. He’s also the finest redhead ever to play for the Cats – no mean feat given the quality of amber-haired athletes to have donned the hoops before him.…

TOP 5 PRESENTATION NIGHT # 1 MOMENTS

FLPKRM3Online lists are big aren’t they? In the modern age where we have so many pressing things to do – such as reading lists online – we are not above getting involved in this kind of thing. Ahead of revealing the line-up for our next show this coming Friday, here are some sweet memories from our first Presentation Night show in July last year starring Paul Kelly, Bob Murphy and our very own Francis Leach.

1. Francis walks on stage to the strains of ‘This Charming Man’ to a rousing reception– the exact point at which it seemed like a show where people talk about music and footy was probably going to work out just like the fantasy sequence we’d been imagining in our heads.…
