The Adam, Marki and Doc show is back!

by on Aug.26, 2009, under Shows

It’s been a while, but we’re back! You might remember us from such bands as Nitidus, Shotgun Zero and The West Melbourne Brass Band 12th Division. We’re dusting off the drums, guitars, mics and some of the old songs for one more night of rock n’ roll.

In fact, I don’t want to alarm you, but this may actually be your last chance to see us perform these songs for the rest of the year, so if you want to hear The Taste, What’s It Gonna Be and other such nonsense… Saturday night is your night baby!

Get on down to the Three Crowns pub in West Melbourne at 9pm. More details via the FaceSpaceTwit page for those into that sort of thing.

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:

Kia ora to our New Zealand cousins

by on Feb.20, 2009, under Shows

Hi there blog rockers!  We’re back in the land of Aus’ after an all-too-brief visit to our kiwi neighbours earlier this month.  I realise this post is a bit late, but it takes a while to get back to reality after a week on the picturesque South Island.

New Zealand - 2009 02 05 - Akeroa New Zealand - 2009 02 02 - Christchurch The reason for our visit was to perform live at the A.R.E.A 9 Festival near Lake Ohau, (20 minutes from Twizel).  This 48 hour non-stop-music event was held over the Waitangi Day long weekend and featured some of New Zealand’s finest acts, including Salmonella Dub, Rhombus, Kora, Katchafire and many more.  Most of you probably know that Nitidus began with Patrick ‘PC’ Clemenger as a cover band in Christchurch, so it was an amazing ‘pilgrimage’ flying over the pond to see where all this madness began.

For myself and Adam, this was our first time in the South Island, so we spent the week leading up to the event acclimatising to the people and the places.  This was also the first time we met up with PC in almost a year!  Don’t worry folks, he hasn’t changed, he’s still the same rocker he ever was.  Much drinking was involved.

After a week of site seeing, it was time to get the show on the road.  We picked up Marki from the airport and drove direct to Twizel with only a few hours to kill before we were to hit the stage at 4:30am on Saturday 7th February (when they said 48 hours of music, they weren’t kidding).  It was awesome to be back on stage, a FESTIVAL stage no less, with PC, Marki, Adam and myself cranking out the songs we’re proud to have created: The Taste, 21 Alibis, What’s It Gonna Be, Echoes, Don’t, Red Morning, So Long and more.  The only thing that sucked was that the show ended!  Big props to Mission Controlled for flying us over for their awesome event, have us back anytime!

We’re back in Melbourne, narrowly missing the 40+ degree heat wave (Celcius, which is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit), only to find half of Victoria burning to the ground in the tragic bush fires.  Our hearts go out to those who have lost property and loved ones in this disaster… but more on that in my next post.

For now, enjoy these pictures from New Zealand (more to come).

New Zealand - 2009 02 05 - Waitangi Day Eve in Christchurch New Zealand - 2009 02 07 - A.R.E.A 9 New Zealand - 2009 02 07 - A.R.E.A 9 stage
