SA Live Music GTG Nov 24th


Recommended Posts


SA, Adelaide Hills


Just confirmed, the next instalment!


Many of you will remember Little Wise from last years HiFi show, playing live in the lobby. Well, she has just released her second album and will be heading to Adelaide to play at our Adelaide Hills backyard, so lock it into your calendar! As always there will be a modest cover charge which goes 100% straight to Sophie. She will naturally have CDs and LPs available there as well. Bring partners, friends, children as well, all welcome. The cover charge applies only to adults.


This will be a Sunday Session style, afternoon gig.


"Little Wise, AKA songwriter Sophie Klein, invites you to come and celebrate her new album ‘Want it All’ as she tours around the country.


Awarded a grant from Creative Victoria and backed by a stellar crowdfunding effort, Little Wise worked at The Aviary Studios with producers Fraser Montgomery and Nick Edin to create something authentic and full of soul. The resulting ten-track sophomore album traverses a classic pop-rock sonic landscape. It’s familiar yet it can’t be pinned down to a single source of influence. These songs are short, sharp, focused and refined. They bring immediacy, emotional affect and some unfettered joyous rock ‘n roll. SCENSTR have described the first single as sitting “somewhere between the growl of PJ Harvey and simmering tension of The Velvet Underground”.


Don’t miss Little Wise, who will be turning heads and melting hearts live at Grizzly's Backyard Sessions on Sunday 24th November in support of ‘Want it All’.  Owning the stage in a solo performance, Little Wise fuses Indie, Folk-Rock and vintage sounds with a good dose of Melbourne swagger."

You know I'm In , haven't missed one yet [emoji3526]
I did kinda assume you'd be front and centre!

I may see if you can pick up a mate from out your way who doesn't drive, if that's ok.

love the artists moniker - Little Wise.


If I can I certainly will be there (significant other and daughter in tow) - still sorry for having missed the one in March.


Am tempted to scour youtube for already existing Little Wise music, however may like to hear in person initially as the opportunity is there clearly...


Almost needless to say - well done MrGrizz for organising another one of these.

I’ve been wanting to visit Adelaide. 

Hope you can make it!! It’ll be great to catch up. I’m hoping to be there. While your over, try to cost as many members places as you can. Makes the trip worth while.. [emoji4]

I concur with @Grizzly about the new album. It is a more mature and fleshed out sound with the band being far more involved than on the earlier album but Sophie's voice still remains a highlight.

There are notable elements of Americana and indie rock and she is not reluctant to express a range of emotions in the songs. As Mr Grizzly says, the recording isn't especially hi fi, but instead has a small but appealing degree of a grungy edge and the album is all the better for it.

Everything we know and love is still there, but clearly, this is an artist (and band) who are in an evolutionary process and the album shows this progress clearly in motion.

Buy it and love it.


I am and I do.

I met with Sophie yesterday while in Melb after the show, and she is very excited about coming over to show her new material in a live setting. Bring family and friends for an unforgettable arvo!

      Roxy: Tonight's the Night Live is a live album by Canadian musician Neil Young. The album is culled from live recordings made at the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, shows that celebrated the club's opening as part of Neil Young Tonight's the Night Tour 1973. Neil Young and the backing band he called the Santa Monica Flyers played two sets a night on September 20, 21, and 22, 1973, shortly after the band had finished recording Tonight's the Night.

      This is so subjective but I'm going to ask - What do you consider your best live recording?
      For me it has been the following (to date):
      1/2 The Ramones - It's Alive
      2/2 Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt - Meeting by the River.
