Just thought I’d put the word out about a great night at The Vanguard coming up this Thursday (12th November). I’ll be hosting and playing for a tribute to Elliott Smith. I look at Elliott Smith as a very before his time intimate and inventive songwriter, who in some ways reminds me of an angry Beck. There will be heaps of great singer songwriters singing his songs and it’s a very full line up, so if you want either enjoy his music or discover what he was all about, come along. Tix at the door or from moshtix or the Vanguard site….which is here.
