Tenacious D Opening Act - Jamaine Ross: Shows Next Week!

Tenacious D
Opening Act Jamaine Ross Announced
Shows Next Week!

Tenacious D have been killing it at their Australian shows ahead of next week’s visit to New Zealand!! The duo has already played in Brisbane and Sydney and the reports so far have been hugely favourable:

“Dudes chanted the letter D over and over between songs, everybody seemed to know all the words, people in the seats stood to applaud their favourites only to stand up again....” fasterlouder.com

“Throughout the concert the two rock out armed only with acoustic guitars and Blacks amazing voice that hits every note without even looking like he is trying.”
thedwarf.com.au

Bringing it all back to the classic lineup that originally birthed their genius, Jack Black and Kyle Gass are touring as an acoustic duo on their first tour of Australia and New Zealand since their last run supporting Foo Fighters in December of 2011.

Tenacious D have always maintained a special love affair with audiences here …but this will be their first trip here since the release of their Grammy-nominated third album, Rize Of The Fenix.

Just announced, joining The D for their New Zealand shows will be special guest, kiwi comedian Jamaine Ross.

Jamaine first tried his hand at stand-up comedy in 2010 as an entrant in the Raw Comedy Quest for rookie comedians. He was knocked out in the semi-finals that year, but returned in 2012 to win the whole thing by unanimous decision.

He has just come off headlining The Medium Rare Comedy Showcase at the 2013 New Zealand International Comedy Festival which had a successful run, earning a 5 star review, and selling out several shows.

His comedy draws on his childhood experiences as a Maori growing up in Christchurch, his unique relationship with his mother, and his keen observations on everyday life, which are sometimes explored further than necessary but to hilarious effect.

Also appearing on all dates will be SASQUATCH, an “ape-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.” Sasquatch will be performing solo at these dates…ripping some unreal guitar solos.

As with all times Tenacious D takes a stage, these shows are not to be missed.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
