Second Verse Blues

As much as I love  writing songs, I hate writing second verses.  And I hope this confession doesn't make me a bad songwriter.  Actually I think every songwriter has this problem so I'm alright confessing.  Currently I am writing a brand new song.  I have written the entire song except for the second verse.  So in lyrical terms I have written the first verse, first pre-chorus, chorus, second pre-chorus and the bridge.  I am so close.  I even know what the verse is going to be about but I just can't find the words.  

Anyway I needed to vent.  The good news is that a new song is (being) written and will hopefully debut at a show very soon.  So hopefully I will see you at the grand unveiling.

O Week Yeah!!

Sometimes you get to play to a crowd that makes a show so much fun you can't help but smile the entire set.  We had one of those ones tonight playing for some new college kids during orientation week at the Uni of Queensland.  It was a pool party and it was raining but that didn't stop the dancing and singing along.  We had a blast.

So thanks to the new college goers for making our night a whole lot of fun.  We hope you had a great intro to college and we want to wish you all the very best for the year.  Hopefully we'll see you all again sometime soon.

And One For The Kids

And by kids I mean our under-18 friends.  

We played our first headline all-ages show on Saturday and so finally you didn't need an ID card to get in.  It was a great afternoon and it was really cool to meet and play for everyone who can't make it to the clubs we're always playing at.  Thank you so much to those cool cool people who came to the show.  We'll hopefully be playing a whole lot more all-ages gigs this year.
