Scott Russo and Grinspoon's Phil Jamieson joined forces at the Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne earlier this week. The amazing Rebecca Houlden was there and brings us these photos from the night:
Phil Jamieson is best known for his work as the frontman of Grinspoon, but now he’s branching off for some solo performances. Phil has a string of acoustic shows lined up around NSW and TAS in November.
Grinspoon are now elder statesmen of the Australian scene. The bratty and chaotic punk attitude that defined their early career is long gone, having been replaced by a level of professionalism and technical expertise that if you tuned out after New Detention may not have expected.
Grinspoon played the Enmore Theatre on Saturday night with The Snowdroppers & Dave Larkin Darwin Theory. Gwendolyn Lee was there and brings us these photos from the pit.

There’s only one reason I would spend my afternoon stand on a grassy hill on a gloomy Melbourne day with a forecast for rain. That reason my friend, is that it’s Aerosmith’s first Australian tour in over 20 years. Despite the temperature of 16 degrees and ominous grey clouds that were looming over head, there was a sense of anticipation in the air, and a stellar line up that made the Sunday afternoon worth the threatening weather.

Grinspoon are currently still out on the road, touring their latest LP Black Rabbit. When I last caught up with Kris Hopes, the band was kicking about backstage at the Big Day Out and gearing up for one of their biggest national tours to date. Hopes chats with me today about how the tour has been so far, supporting Aerosmith, and where they'll be headed once the Black Rabbits tour winds up.
Everybody’s selling out in this week’s tour update, and not in the bad way either, with Vance Joy, Tool, They Might Be Giants and Aerosmith all having sell out shows, and with a heap of bands adding extra shows due to the dutiful screams of their fans.
