The Corner Bushfire Benefit

A roast lunch for us at Tramway Hotel in North Fitzroy with Mum and Katrina who came down from Ballarat, to see Melissa and I yesterday. Roast beef to fall apart on your fork, roast potatoes, pumpkin, parsnip, carrot and Yorkshire pudding...yum!

Then I trammed into town, and then out the other side, to The Corner, to meet Nicole and Mary for the Bushfire Benefit. Raising money for the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Fund, to assist with the rebuilding from the horrors of Black Saturday, last month.

Hot Little Hands opened the day's music, before our main reason for going along, The Basics, played on the side stage.

Having not played a show for some three months, with Kris being overseas for a stint, the lads were back with their harmonies, and banter. Quite a few new tracks mixed in, and their new single With The Ship was very strong, and very exciting! Tracks like Money (Gimme, Gimme), which is still in my head, and Just Hold On from older albums, plus unreleased ones Like A Brother showed the lads have such talent.

Catching up with Wally after their set, for a follow up photo for Jessie, who got one in Glasgow, he tells us he is still tinkering with the track line up for the album... Such a lovely lad, too.

We took in RockKwiz's Julia Zemiro as MC, drumming up support for the raffle, before The Pictures, who were quite good.

The three of us then went upstairs to the rooftop, to contribute to the Benefit sausage sizzle, whilst overlooking the city.
