You may have heard Penny‚€™s hit single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ on JJJ way back in 1994. Penny was one-half of the songwriting core of Club Hoy and went on to forge a career of her own after Club Hoy‚€™s untimely demise. She toured extensively as a headliner and as a support to such luminaries as Margaret Urlich, Things of Stone and Wood, Kate Ceberano, Sophie B Hawkins and Wendy Matthews. In 1994, her debut single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ made it into the JJJ Hottest 100 at a respectable no. 58. Most recently you may have seen her on stage with her sister, comedian Kitty Flanagan. But now after 10 years away from music proper, Penny has been easing back into live shows around the city.

Not Good With Horses are a rollicking country-blues band with a rockabilly edge and a cruisey sweet-voiced girl up front. If you like girl singers and you like your pop acoustic with a little bit of a rootsy bite, come along to this fantastic double bill on Sunday 15th June. You won‚€™t be disappointed.†

Event
√Ę€˜WALK ON THE WiLDSIDE√Ę€™: The music of Lou Reed, Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop,feat
14th June 2014
Camelot Lounge, 19 Marrickville Road Marrickville NSW 2204

Variously described as Garage Cabaret, Gypsy Punk, and Gangster Jazz, Waiting for Guinness has been playing the Sydney pub/club scene for years. They may be one of the best dressed too. The band features up to seven pieces including banjo, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, guitaron (Mexican bass), flute, guitars and drums.

In the tradition of artists such as Tom Waits, Calexico and The Pogues, Waiting for Guinness take their nourishment from ‚€˜old music‚€™ and hot-wire the styles of Berlin Cabaret, Mariachi, Vaudeville, Spaghetti Western and Swing-Jazz into their own surreal vision.

In concert, Waiting for Guinness‚€™ spontaneous and anarchic performances are truly engaging. The theatrical element is as strong as ever, harking back to their busking origins. A fan once said ‚€œWFG make old music sound new somehow,‚€ and they may have a point. The band are not traditionalists trying to re-create the past, but write contemporary and original music influenced by the styles they love.†

Tix are $20 +bf presale and $25 on the door.

Doors ‚€“ 7.30pm, show 9.00pm
