… as it says on the side of the ute at the Dingee pub. (Thirty minutes north of Bendigo; – thank you for asking.)
It was so hot, so very hot. So hot that the Corolla (usually bullet-proof in terms of reliability) BOILED! I had to beg water from a closed-mouthed (he doesn’t like eating flies) farmer who probably checked his house to see that the sweaty, Corolla-driving blow-ins hadn’t knicked anything. (We hadn’t, by the way – just three litres of water.)
So, why Dingee? We were checking out the site for our next gig. This is a charity one. We need a lot of Karma repair and so do a few of these. The beneficiary is a local girl who has leukaemia. She is in the Royal Children’s but with a bit of luck will be there for the fundraiser to benefit both her family and the hospital.
The details – (thanks for asking, again.) Date is Saturday 9 December. Venue is the Dingee pub. 1pm the fun starts, with all the activities mentioned on the poster above. Then at 7pm, the kiddies go to sleep: (aha ha ha – see Noni Hazelhurst video on this topic.)
.. and we come on (7ish) to play country rock. Whatever that is. Constant expansion of repertoire is not a matter we need consciously address, it seems. 🙂
