Icecream Hands "Sweeter than Radio" 20th Anniversary

20/20/2019

with the Smallgoods duo
Caravan Music Club, Saturday 18th May 2019

I was originally planning on having a stall at the Melbourne Movie Market but it turned out it was already sold out for stalls but they still took money. I decided to crack a snit and not go. I had spent quite enough money this week already and did not get home until nearly 10pm the night before due going to see John Marsden at Manor Lakes library (free book!)

Listening to the election wrap-up on RRR FM on the way I was surprised they were quite light on actual election results. I arrived in plenty of time and the band was just finishing up the sound check. Sue was going around lighting the candles on the tables and said she would be glad when Pete gets back next week. I would have liked to see some other gigs while he was away but some of the good ones were during the week when I cannot get home to the other side of town.

I had sort of heard of the Smallgoods before and they said they had not played in two years. I thought they went great and the audience seemed to like them.

While I have seen Charles Jenkins a bit around town, I had never seen the Icecream Hands as they were before my time. Surprisingly I knew a lot of the songs as he must play a few of them in his solo shows. Was good to see Douglas Lee Robinson who I had not seen since when he played with the DC3 a few years back.

Highlights: Icecream Hands, Tony Abbott losing his seat, winning $85 on the pokies
Lowlights: That would be patently obvious
