Event details

THE TRIFFID, BRISBANE LAST DRINKS AT THE MORRISON HOTEL w/ Bob Evans The Whitlams are thrilled to announce the “Last drinks at the Morrison Hotel Tour.” with special guest Bob Evans! It’s 20 years since “Blow Up the Pokies” was released on the multi-platinum album “Love this City” and even though all the band can really do is shrug their shoulders that nothing has changed on the pokies front they can mark the passage of time and recall partying like it was 1999 by playing most of the album each night on this tour. Tim Freedman says “ I have identified 12 songs and two bonus tracks that I still want to play from Love this City, so that will make up the core of show this May and June. The other half of the rambunctious long set will wander widely through the other five albums, stopping off for six minutes at Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled up in Blue’ which it’s time to play again”. BOB EVANS Bob Evans, the ARIA winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs. Under the alias of Bob Evans, Mitchell has released six albums, all of which showcase the versatility and skill of this talented songsmith. Gentle, acoustic melodies prevail, enveloping the classic folk storytelling and strong emotional pull that characterises Mitchell's substantial body of work, the most recent of which is his new album, 'Full Circle', a culmination of his best, out October 2018
