Tonight is the second of 2 sold out shows at Perth’s Burwood Casino
Selling out always feel amazing
But selling out in your hometown is kinda the coolest of the cool
There are added bonuses to playing at home too
Mum packs me a lunch to eat before the show
I get to see my family
Like my favourite Australian sister-in-law, Robby
OK, she’s technically my ONLY Australian sister-in-law
But she’s still my favourite!
As with all family members, we put her to work
She was Mum’s co-merch bitch
And let me tell you, we’ve never sold so many of my t-shirts as we did last night
She can wear one ANY time!
The Burswood is an amazing venue
Comparible to some of the best venues we play at, anywhere in the world
A very fancy backstage
With a ‘green room’ that’s red
I’ve actually yet to see a green room that’s GREEN?
Big backstage area
To fit all our git-fiddles in
This is the ‘before’ shot
We had a proffessional photographer at the shows
I will upload those pics as soon as I have them
I’m pretty sure they’ll be a little less blurry than mine!
So it was awesome having family at the show
But it was a little WEIRD too
My brother Travis decided that his oldest two boys
Search & Destroy
Are finally old enough to come and see a show
And see what their Aunty & Poppy REALLY do at work
I won’t lie – I was a bit nervous about having them at the show
Believe it or not, I try REALLY hard to watch my mouth in front of them
So I was concerned they’d see me up on stage with the verbal diarrhea of the mouth
“…fuck, fuck, shit, bastard, wanker, fucktard….etc…”
And what would they think when they saw their POPPY
Who’s even WORSE??
I was a bit worried at how they’d take it
And tried to warn them beforehand
But my brother assured me they hear WAY worse at school
(which is actually where I learnt to swear)
I tried to prepare them
I even showed them the back of my guitar BEFORE the show
Scared that they wouldn’t cope seeing the big boobies for the first time
I made them feel better by telling them the picture on the back wasn’t of MY boobs
It their Mum’s.
