Geoff Lemon out on tour

Hey all. Just confirmed that I’m playing a few tour dates with hip-hop supremo Joelistics, who’s taken a break from TZU to release his first solo record on Elefant Traks. I’ll be helping out with five shows in Victoria and Queensland, hosting the night and dropping the odd bit of spoken word into the show. Joelistics is one of the most engaging Australian MCs, well worth checking out, even if it’s not your usual style. Come along if you want to have a head-nod or say g’day. Dates below, and ticket info here.

Westralians, I’ll also be doing a bunch of gigs at a poetry festival in Perth come the end of August, if you’re up.

Saturday 23 July
Northcote Social Club, Melbourne 

(official album launch – will be a corker)

Thursday 11 August
Sol Bar, Maroochydore

Friday 12 August
The Spotted Cow, Toowoomba

Saturday 13 August
Step Inn, Brisbane – VENUE CHANGE: Now at the Jubilee Hotel, Fortitude Valley

All shows with with Ishu + Polo Club, Brisbane show also with new sensation Sietta.

I’ll be doing readings between August 26 and August 30, at various events, though the final program has not yet been released.

    Toowoomba? Interesting choice. We’ll see you at the Step Inn, Mr Lemon.

    Hey Geoff, why not post the link to the proposed GetUp campaign to get “Australiar” published? There’s a few people out there wanting to help and try to fund it, just needing to know where to send the funds.

    I found your work through Joelistics’ twitter feed when he linked your “Faggots and Towelheads” ANZAC piece, so it’s nice everything is coming full circle.

    So when the effing eff are you coming to NSW and the Central Coast in particular? And why don’t you do a tour with Henry Rollins while you’re at it?

      In fact, Mr Skeleton, I’ll be in Newcastle for This is Not Art, September 30 to October 4. Not sure exactly what I’m doing yet in terms of events and panels, but it’ll be in the program when it comes out. We’ll also be launching Issue 32 of Going Down Swinging up there, and hopefully launching it Sydney earlier in September.
