Ruby’s on Easter Saturday

by on Apr.04, 2009, under Shows

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Creech comeback show, was an awesome night and great to see so many friends once again.  Props to DLG and The Humanz… and big props to Taz, great to see ya back on the mic after defeating the cancer, you’re an inspiration!

Also, it seems that some of you are heading to Ruby’s tonight.  It’s gonna be a great night of Australia’s finest new hip hop talents with Hills Hip-Hop, but I hope you come down next Saturday as well when Adam, Marki and myself will be rocking out with the mighty Dusted Orange.  See you there on Easter Saturday!

Nitidus and Dusted Orange unite for a rock enslaught!

by on Mar.10, 2009, under Shows

UPDATED: The Ruby’s gig is now on the 11th of April, not the 4th of April as mentioned when this post was first published. Apologies for any confusion.

Get over to the John Curtin Hotel on Lygon Street this Thursday night for a heavy dose of rock, served by our good friends Dusted Orange, Teaza, plus The Rock City Riff Raff and us (Adam, Marki and me).  The bar opens at 8pm, and be sure to bring an extra $8 for the lovely door girl so she can keep the staff paid and the venue open for many more nights of fun.

Also, mark down 4 April 11 April on your calendar, when we will join the mighty Dusted Orange once more to rock Ruby’s Lounge in Belgrave.

There’s one more show in April to announce, but I’m still waiting for details and confirmation, so stay tuned.  As a teaser, let’s just say it may involve the triumphant return of Melbourne rock heavyweights Creech!

Exciting times ahead.  See you on Thursday.

Acoustic fun this Friday

by on Mar.05, 2009, under Shows

Join Adam, Marki and myself at the Three Crowns Hotel again this Friday for a working week wind down.  We’ll play a mix of Nitidus tracks and cover songs in a mellow acoustic fashion, so if you’re in town, head on over to 365 Victoria Street, West Melbourne for some Friday fun.

This will be our third night at the Three Crowns.  Following our Australia Day Eve gig, we returned last Friday for an intimate secret gig …secret only because I forgot to tell you guys about it, my bad.  Here’s a few photos to make up for it.

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:
