Nadia Patterson at Spoke N Slurred

Nadia Patterson is young, new and has been absolutely killing it on open mics and in slams. Despite my obvious jealousy ridden rage at this state of affairs I figure she has more than earned her own feature spot.

Brick City Bar
73 Grenfell St, Adelaide

Sunday 29 July 2018
5:30 – 9:30 pm.

Paroxysm Album Tribute Gig – “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse

Friday, July 13 at 7:30 PM

Broadcast Bar
66A Grote Street, Adelaide

Friday the 13th will now be brought to you by Paroxysm Press and Tuxedo (black)Cat.

Last time it was a Jason themed gig, this time we’re celebrating the blackest cat in the 27 club… Amy Winehouse – BACK TO BLACK is her second and final album, and has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Unlike her first jazz influenced album, Frank, Back to Black pairs Winehouse with R & B backing band the Dap Kings and is said to have kicked off the Brit neo soul genre. And it’s bloody brilliant!

As always we will be bringing you the cream of local talent to take pieces of Amy and retell her story. And it’s an all chick line up!

Track Listing

Rehab… Kerryn Tredrea
You Know I’m No Good… Kelly Cusack
Me and Mr. Jones… Rachael Mead
Just Friends… Amelia Walker
Back to Black… Tracey Korsten
Love is a Losing Game… Ashlee Karlar
Tears Dry on their Own… Kelly Cusack
Wake up Alone… Rachael Mead
Some Unholy War… Amelia Walker
He Can Only Hold Her… Tracey Korsten
Addicted… Ashlee Karlar
