Chris Russell's Chicken Walk @ NSC (Sunday matinee 4th August, $15)

Melbourne's own Chris Russell's Chicken Walk are launching their second album 'Shakedown' today, this being hot-on-the-heels of an east-coast tour supporting Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes.


Chris Russell's Chicken Walk take all the musical goodness from the American Deep South, and combine it with an Australian twang, to deliver a delta-blues inspired Chrississippi-styled foot-stompin' good time. Chris is most-ably supported with the zydeco-sounds of Gator Queen and the country-soul-rock of Saint Jude (a personal fav). So, be ready to foot-tap your way through the entire afternoon from the get go. All the details you need are the Northcote Social Club website.


o Catch a few CRCW clips from premier blues blog 'Real Down Blues',
o Listen in on some CRCW tunes from the official website,
o Boogie to CRCW recorded live at Golden Plains, and
o Dance with CRCW's 'Skinny Girl' recorded live at Cherry Bar.

o Listen to Saint Jude's latest album online streaming online.

o Listen to some Gator Queen tracks from reverbnation.

I reckon this'll be a great way to blow off any lingering cobwebs gathered the-night-before-the-morning-after. And as CRCW have developed a good-sized following in the Melbourne scene for engaging live shows, i'd STRONGLY ADVISE PRE-PURCHASING TICKETS. Word has it this gig is likely to become sold out midweek.

 

Meet around 1:45pm inside the bandroom. Early on, i'll endeavour to get our group inside the 'triangle' of the merch-desk, seat-bench, and stage-left. So look for the merchandise first up if you haven't met me previosuly. My number is[masked] if you're lost - although I am recognisable by my profile pic. Also - based on a prior meetups - we've seemed to kick on and chat over drinks post-gig for a while, so look for us again somewhere near the merchandise stand afterwards if you like.

    I've touched base with the Northcote Social Club, and there ARE tickets available on the door. As we are meeting 15 minutes after the bandroom doors officially "open", you'll be a good bet to get in. So - if you are reading this tonight, or have just logged on to Meet Up Sunday morning - if you are looking for something to do, it'd be great to see you there.

      I don't have my ticket but I'll give it a shot and I hope I can get in. Also I hope I can find you, as I haven't been to any of your meetups before. :)

      Work your way around to the other side of the stage once you're in - that's where the merch desk is at - and you'll be fine, Yas. Looking forward to seeing you there. Otherwise text me if you're having any troubs, and we'll get you sorted out. See you soon.

    Pre gig lunch a good suggestion- especially if bread roll holding hats are to be worn, but bit of a stretch to make it in time as is for me- otherwise I'd have been in :)

    August 3, 2013

    LUNCH LUNCH!! Does anyone want to meet for lunch at the NSC or nearby before the gig, probably easier to do it at the NSC, shoot me an email for my Ph number if you wish to dine. [masked]

    • Nuala

      will you wear your hat at lunch?

      July 29, 2013

    • Gavin J.

      Yes, it's handy to hold the bread rolls on the horns

      July 30, 2013

  • Gavin J.

    I just got my ticket, bring on the walking chickens!! Is anyone interested in catching up for lunch/brunch prior? Should be a good gig.

I'll bet this will have sold-out before the Sunday gig, as there's only 100. Plenty of black-coloured vinyl and Cd's thou...
