Blame Ringo To Launder Good Times

I meant to write about this a lot sooner but a combination of work and university study has kept my music writing hobby to a minimum. I do think you should read about the upcoming tour by local Brisbane indie pop group, Blame Ringo! who are about play a whole heap of laundromats over the coming two weeks down the east coast.

If you haven't heard of Blame Ringo! well you obviously haven't been reading the music press or the Courier Mail or listening to ABC radio, because they're beginning to garner a bit of well deserved attention. They released a great little record earlier this year called "Lucky Number 9", which hearkens back to the best bits of the Kinks and the Beatles and which you should immediately go out and purchase.

Not only that, I insist you check out the Garble Arch video featuring the many tourists attempting to replicate the Abbey Road album cover.

The tour kicks off tomorrow with a set at my local laundromat in Ashgrove, Brisbane at 4pm before moving on to the Paddington Laundromat at 5pm. I'm going to be there, but will YOU!?
