My first show I ever played was in Anglesea. I was 14 (I think) and I turned up to an open mic at the pub to have a crack at glory.
Just one song, all that was needed.....
I tried my hand at the Paul Kelly classic ‘Dumb Things’. I was so nervous I played it nearly double time and forgot a verse so I had to repeat the first one twice....
I knew I’d sort of cooked it but the crowd sensed I was very young and cheered anyway.
I slunked in the backseat of the car on the way home, a bit sheepish but I knew I was hooked and I knew one day I could do better.
13 or so years later. I return to Anglesea with my full band and my sophomore album in tow.
Many things have changed but that first gig still stays with me, so I’ll be keen to make amends for it and give this one a real crack... Tix link in bio.
Support from the amazing @becgoring and her band (ex sweetheart guitarist and incredible songwriter,performer and very formidable football player...). It will be a wonderful night.
