Get with the times, man. Most new bands these days have engaged the services of a manager and agent before they've even decided what popular bands to base their sounds on.

Shit - did I just find out about Anthony pateras' last oz gig for the foreseeable future the day after it happened?
It seems I did.

Tigers, yes, but your enthusiasm may still bolster the chances of a feature/interview (eho knows). While I'm at it, a review and or feature of the ambarchi,, haino, o'rourke double LP wouldn't go astray

Ghoti you are spot on, they already did...sheesh I am behind the times.

Mule, I meant the an article about The Guardian in the UK giving a toss, not about new bands generally. Of course M+N already does that, in spades.

From Kate Miller Heidke's Facebook page

Email from a psychotic dick with the Order of Australia medal.

Dear Kate,
with regret I have to write about experiences at your concert last night.

The pre act was juvenile and smutty.
Is this how you think ''country people'' are warmed up?
I will be interested to hear if this part is done in St Johns in Brisbane.
If not there lies the hypocrisy.

Your manager Adrian?
spoke to me re a number of issues.
As I have spent a life time in Arts Advocacy and have toured and run a theatre company I would like to bring a few things to your attention.
I have had a session with Heather at the Star Court re venue management problems but there are some things here.

Your manager said that the opening act was your husband and that you like the material. Who cares. Much of the audience didn't. It diminished your work.

There was a sea of mobile phones..recording sound and video of your show.
Your manager said you approved??
as an artist advocate I am speechless.
Does it occur to whoever.
1. this is illegal..especially in NSW.
2. If you are trying to make money this radically diminishes your of CDs…but above all
3. respect your audience…we were in a sea of mobile devices recording and could not possible focus on your work.
I spent the first half hour asking people to turn them off.

The venue people talked, audience drank/constantly stood up and went to the loo in the middle of your songs. There was no policy re latecomers.
There was constant noise from the bar….. laughter and bottles/ there was constant noise from the ''crew'' behind us..particularly trying to get sound balance right..
There were safety issues etc which I will take up with The Star Court.

It would be a good idea to other artists I see…signed copies of discs in the foyer BEFORE the show as well as your signing afterwards. Many of us are not standing in a bar for 20 min after.

Please..for your integrity.{.something little known by Gen Y yet you sing about it}..make an announcement to turn of mobile devices.
remove the rubbish opening act
and just do your performance.

You have a devine voice.
Unfortunately we left after 30 minutes.

We would also like a refund as $100 went down the drain.

I'm surprised Iggy Azalea hasn't at least gotten a brief mention. Number 1 and number 2 on billboard...

does she still count as Australian?
