Tonight I was lucky to be able to have a unique Australian evening at the Ultimate Picture Palace in Cowley. It is the first time in a number of years that I have been to this independent cinema just off the Cowley Road, and tonight Darren Hanlon played about four of his songs, including one of his most requested numbers, The Squash Song, I am not sure this is entirely correct. He was then joined by Stephanie Hughes for three more numbers this set were covers, two Paul Kelly songs and one that surprised me, from the West Australian band, The Trifids. After this Darren gave the mostly Australian audience a lesson on how to suck eggs, by explaining the storey of the Man From Snowy River, which was then shown. Never been to a cinema that had a live act before the movie, nice evening.
