clarebowditch Tara Moss is a good sort: we met to discuss the event we're both speaking at tomorrow (Women Leading Change) and she took the opportunity to remind me that today offered us another chance to protest against the forced closure of Aboriginal Communities - I can't quite get my head around how this is actually even being proposed? On the way home on my bike I saw Melbourne City closed for business, also making a protest. #sosblakaustralia @taramossauthor #womenleadingchange 3d

clarebowditch Excellent news! Pip Lincolne has written another book, and it's so good! Available in all book stores, with something for everyone. I was honoured to write the foreword Pip: I am so glad for the people of the world that this book has been written. Let's eat cake! CB Xoxox @meetmeatmikes #craftforthesoul 2w

clarebowditch To call the "Something for John" benefit a wonderful success would be spot on!
With ears freshly ringingly, allow me to capture some highlights from this moment in Australian rock history.

Firstly - The dude in the hat is John Hedigan, our highly respected colleague in Australian rock ("Something for Kate", "Red Raku"). (photo c/o Lisa Bowditch). John is currently spanking the butt of
"The Big Kahuna" of brain cancers (GBM G4), which means taking an extended break from work.
Fellow rocket-science-obsessive and top-Aussie Paul Dempsey coined the title "Something for John": a code name for "a big benefit gig/excuse for a party". Which is exactly what happened. The weekend itself saw world-first duets and collaborations including "Uptown Funky Wunk" (Tim Rogers, Something for Kate, Royal Jelly Dixieland Band), "Time's on Your Side" (Darren Middleton, Bowditch, with Guy Pearce on stand-by in the wings incase of accident), "(Love Lift Us) Up Where We Belong" (Paul Dempsey, Bowditch), "You Saw The Whole of The Moon" (Alex Gow, SFK), "I thought You Were God" (Missy Higgins, Bowditch Band), "Empty Pockets" (Bedge, Bowditch), "Purple Rain" (Adalita, Jane Tyrrel, Clare Bowditch), "Less" (Carl Panuzzo, Bowditch), "Running Up That Hill" (Adalita, SFK), with musical giants Joel Silbersher and Ben Salter kicking goals with SFK on alternate nights.

The most NOTABLE performance of the weekend, however, goes of course to John Hedigan himself, who totally slayed SFK's "Survival Expert" with his key-board/vocal 1-2 knockout punch. Too bloody good.

As John said, too many people to thank. Huge. Approximately 28 musicians and 22 management and crew-members (from sound to planning to photography) who donated their time, the Corner bar-staff even donated their tips (bless you), family, and you guys who donated your love and money.

What goes around comes around, and this weekend was proof of that. "Something for John" rocked. Thank you.
