Hoodoo Gurus, bush fires and old friends

by on Mar.04, 2009, under Shows

Thursday 12th February was a very special night for Nitidus fans.  Adam, Marki and Doctor K took the stage at the Sandbelt Hotel in Moorabbin in support of Australia rock legends the Hoodoo Gurus.  This was apparently the first time the Sandbelt hotel has opened up to original bands, and judging by the turn out and general vibe in the room, it won’t be the last.

The night was made extra special thanks to a surprise guest appearance by the one and only Ash Fyfe!  Adam’s predecessor joined the three of us on stage to crank out our LA Award winning track Red Morning.  Hearing that riff played once again by the guy who wrote and recorded it was an incredible buzz for us as well as the long-time Nitidus fans in the room.  Unfortunately we only had time to prepare the one song with Ash, but hopefully we’ll see him join us on stage again in the near future (stay tuned).

I’m also happy to announce that we raised $253 for the Red Cross bush fire appeal.  As Marki told the crowd, we gladly offered to donate all money raised that night from the sale of our A.S. It Is EP to help those affected by Victoria’s worst natural disaster in history.  Thanks to everyone for helping us make a contribution.

The Hoodoo Gurus finished off the night with an awesome set of classic tracks.  It was great to be a part of their night, and thanks to Daniel and the organisers for putting the event together… and thanks to you guys for joining us at the Sandbelt Hotel.

Check out some of the photos from the gig:
