We are very excited to announce that as part of the preparation for the recording of the upcoming Something for Kate album, Paul Dempsey will perform (road test!) brand new Something for Kate songs over 3 nights at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel on May 23rd, 24th & 25th.
In addition to new material, Paul will of course play classic SFK songs, throw in some covers, and even take requests. ‘Loose’ is a word that’s been thrown around to describe the general approach to set list on all three nights.
This is a very rare chance to see Paul in an intimate setting that has a bit of a history;
In previous years, Paul spent many nights playing under various pseudonyms, Hawaiian Robot, Manmade Horse , Captain Pinstripe in the front bar of The Corner Hotel road testing many now classic Something For Kate songs for the very first time. As word spread that Hawaiian Robot Et al was in fact Paul Dempsey playing brand new SFK songs, lines started to form around the block, before a weekly heaving front bar eventually became an invaluable and highly enjoyable testing ground for new material.
Tickets go on sale Thursday April 18th at midday (AEST) from here on the website.
