Tonight you can have your cake and eat it too.

Longtime guitarist and co-conspirator of Greg Johnson’s, Ted Brown is playing a free gig at Bodega. Singer-songwriter Brown has been based in Los Angeles over the past few years, after making the big move there with Greg Johnson (U.S. site) in 2002. After 5 years building a following they now tour regularly across America. And did I mention that the gig is free? That’s better than bad.

Across town at the Adelaide, the post-rocking Dukes of Leisure are playing with rock-posters Marineville. They’ll be starting at a sensible time, providing as much opportunity as possible for drinking plenty of that cheap cheap Adelaide booze. Door $5 for that show.

PS. Last weekend The Dukes of Leisure finished recording the basic tracks (out at Island Bay with Nic McGowan) for their album… they reckon they’re very excited to be out playing live again and have new material to debut.

Listen to tracks by the various bands by following the links to their Myspace pages. Marineville’s official site is here.
