JTV LIVE: SOMETHING FOR KATE GO AWOL
Thursday, 06 December 2007
As part of triple j and jtv’s biggest regional initiative ever, Melbourne band Something For Kate headed to the Top End as part of the triple j goes AWOL concert series.
It was a huge Saturday night in Humpty Doo when Something For Kate took to the stage. About 12,000 punters basked in the perfect shorts-and-t-shirt weather, whilst soaking in the atmosphere and music.
The crowd scored an added bonus when Myf, Jay & the Doctor joined the band onstage, with cow bell in hand, for an impromtu performance of Rock the Casbah.
Something for Kate formed in 1994. The three-piece band is made up of vocalist and guitarist Paul Dempsey, bass player Stephanie Ashworth and drummer Clint Hyndman.
They have produced a succession of platinum-accredited albums which has seen Something For Kate sell over 400,000 copies of their critically praised back catalogue – Elsewhere For 8 Minutes, Beautiful Sharks, Echolalia, The Official Fiction and Desert Lights.
In addition, the band’s melancholic music has earned them 11 ARIA Award nominations, triple j’s Album of the Year, and twice being bestowed with Album of the Year by the readers of Rolling Stone.
