Union Hotel Brunswick 160th Birthday

02/02/2019

with Matt Walker, Suzannah Espie and Sean McMahon
Union Hotel Brunswick, Saturday 22nd June 2019

I had been looking forward to this as Suzannah had not been playing for a while except for guest spots. Unfortunately I also found out I had a headache when I left home which only got worse throughout the day. Nina has been booking the bands for all 10 years it has been a live music venue. It was a topless bar and old man pub before that and I had not heard of it.

As Los Ragas has had a popular residency at the venue, Matt Walker was up first and played to quite a few people. They took a lot of the tables out and whoever was there already got there pretty early.

Suzannah was joined by Sean McMahon who she used to play with around town. As it had been a while she forgot the words to one of her own songs. Don Walker did that twice last time I saw him.

There was souvlaki on the menu from the spit out the back, but as there were so many people I decided to go down to Union Square for chicken and chips. My headache hadn't gotten any better and it is not good to take more Panadol in a short time so I left just before the T-Bones started and well before Spoonful. I did get to say hello to Denise and David Heard on the way out though.
