Shen's News: The old neck is feeling quite a bit better - thanks to Rob, Greg and Jerry for their healing powers this week. Australia is healing land and now that I'm getting really settled here it looks like it's time for me to get to work on some stuff.
This Wednesday there will be a benefit gig at back of The Forest to help out the folks at Marly St who were burgled recently. It starts at 730, features jazz reggae group Ruby Blue, Chai, and opens with a shortened version of my usual World Music Wednesday improvisations. That's a very special combination for a very special cause!
Brisbane Powerhouse is offering friends of EthnoSuperLounge the chance to purchase discount tickets for Woyzeck on the Highveld (South African puppet performance) this week (for info follow the link).
