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.

Why: We sometimes like to imagine David Crosby running off the 1970’s Carlton backline alongside Bruce Doull for no other reason than his facial hair and thinning, flowing locks make them seem like a compatible pair. Whether or not The Croz could actually run more than three metres without keeling over is entirely beside the point. With the start of season 2014 less than one week away, this is our last chance to breathe deeply for quite some time, so who better to provide the soundtrack to our last footy-free weekend for the next six months than The Croz?…
