Adelaide Festival

My friend, Kimberly, invited us to the opening night free concert for the Adelaide Festival (not to be confused with the Adelaide Fringe Festival, which started a couple weeks earlier). It was held in Elder Park, next to the Festival Theatre. Two artists, Adelaide-born Paul Kelly and Kiwi Neil Finn of Crowded House fame, joined up to play each other's songs. They had done a similar concert in Sydney that cost $125 and completely sold out. Apparently, they're both kind of a big deal, but I'd never heard of 'em. The music was great, though, so I kind of wish I had. They were kind of like Paul Simon, sort of folky and rocky. Hugh even sang along to some of the songs (I love it when he sings, even though he is tragically tone deaf).

  1. John introduced me to an Australian group a long time ago, but I didn't realize they were Australian until recently. The Avalanches. They're fun!
