The occasional pairing of Mick Turner (of the Dirty Three) and Jeffrey Wegener (from the Laughing Clowns) opened proceedings on a very hot night at "the Hoey". We were treated to their transcendental blend of cool hybrid surf jazz improv, to prepare the way for Damo Suzuki's spellbinding performance of scorched freeform.

The Hopetoun is a little pub in Surry Hills renowned for its enduring support of live music in the inner city. While most pubs have moved toward gambling or food for their primary income, the Hoey continues to host live shows seven days a week.
