Soapbox artist and MoS fave Alan Thompson has not the luxury of a quiet festive period. Booked for gigs all over our wide brown land, fans of this multi-tasking musician should note the following dates in their Google calendars. AT’s party season begins in earnest on the 29th of November playing Summer Gay Day at Kippax Lake, followed by the immense Global Gathering at Sydney’s Hordern the next day. Boxing Day (26th December, dummy) sees him playing at Sounds on Sunday’s MoS Classics party then on actual New Year’s Eve the man has nary a moment to organise his record box between gigs with sets at Hed Kandi in Wollongong, Wildlife at the Hordern and Cruise Bar on Sydney Harbour. In 2009, Alan’s Tasmanian fans should head to MS Fest in Launceston - both to support Alan and the good cause.
