Hoodoo Gurus, bush fires and old friends

by on Mar.04, 2009, under Shows

Thursday 12th February was a very special night for Nitidus fans.  Adam, Marki and Doctor K took the stage at the Sandbelt Hotel in Moorabbin in support of Australia rock legends the Hoodoo Gurus.  This was apparently the first time the Sandbelt hotel has opened up to original bands, and judging by the turn out and general vibe in the room, it won’t be the last.

The night was made extra special thanks to a surprise guest appearance by the one and only Ash Fyfe!  Adam’s predecessor joined the three of us on stage to crank out our LA Award winning track Red Morning.  Hearing that riff played once again by the guy who wrote and recorded it was an incredible buzz for us as well as the long-time Nitidus fans in the room.  Unfortunately we only had time to prepare the one song with Ash, but hopefully we’ll see him join us on stage again in the near future (stay tuned).

I’m also happy to announce that we raised $253 for the Red Cross bush fire appeal.  As Marki told the crowd, we gladly offered to donate all money raised that night from the sale of our A.S. It Is EP to help those affected by Victoria’s worst natural disaster in history.  Thanks to everyone for helping us make a contribution.

The Hoodoo Gurus finished off the night with an awesome set of classic tracks.  It was great to be a part of their night, and thanks to Daniel and the organisers for putting the event together… and thanks to you guys for joining us at the Sandbelt Hotel.

Check out some of the photos from the gig:

What’s my scene? The Sandbelt Hotel in Moorabbin will be my scene when we open up the show for the one and only Hoodoo Gurus!  This is your chance to see one of Australia’s greatest legends in rock history… as well as the Hoodoo Gurus.

Hoodoo Gurus

The Hoodoo Gurus are certainly one of those classic Australian rock bands you’ve just got to check out.  Our roadie Darren, a.k.a. Pecka (if you’ve been to our shows, you’ll know who Pecka is) told me that he’d seen the Hoodoo Gurus recently and they have one of the most rocking live shows he has ever seen… and Pecka has seen more than a few!

So take it from our roadie, this is a show you’ll want to see!

It’s all happening on Thursday 12th February from 7:30pm at the corner of South & Bignell Roads, Moorabbin.  This is an over 18s show, so you will need photo ID at the door.

Tickets are available for just $22 (plus postage), which also entitles you to 10% off any main meal at the Sandbelt Hotel Bistro.  To put it mathematically: dinner + show = a perfect pre-valentines night out!  I always knew my grade 2 maths would come in handy one day.

So what are you waiting for?  Get your tickets right now by clicking the button below.

[EDIT: ticket sales now closed, ‘Add to Cart’ button has been removed]

Thanks for supporting Australian rock, and we’ll see you at the show.  Don’t forget to add it to your calendar.
