Dvorak and Dallas

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra @ Sidney Myer Music Bowl 080206

When I used to study music, we went to the Botanical Gardens to listen to the Melbourne Symphony with the added bonus of entry=nix. My violin-playing sib had leanings towards orchestra groupy, I have fuzzy memories of photos and autographs of star cellists!
Recently I was reminded how lovely it is to spend a balmy summer evening at the Music Bowl with the MSO. Good food, good company and great music.

Dallas Crane @ Prince of Wales 090206

It has also been a while since I've seen Dallas Crane and they never disappoint. All the favourites were aired played with gusto by a tight rhythm section and roaring guitars.

Excellent supports in 67 Special and one charismatic Mr Timmy Rogers. When is that new You Am I album arriving - very much looking forward to that event too!

great pix! Tim The Icon AND his double from 67 special AND dallas AND the bowl all look fantastic. a more pretentious purveyor of this blog would say your description of all the above is a great juxtaposition too :-)

coming to think of it, tim looks like he's about to take a chunk out of that microphone ...
