The Weekend Australian - Review - - Music Reviews - Iain Shed­den

The past week or so has been full tilt in a va­ri­ety of ways in this cor­ner of the mu­sic writ­ing cam­pus, topped last week­end by an ex­cit­ing and ab­sorb­ing few days at A Rock & Roll Writ­ers Fes­ti­val in Bris­bane. This talk­fest, now in its se­cond year, pro­duced a highly en­ter­tain­ing range of speak­ers, in­clud­ing artists Adalita, Cash Sav­age and Hugo Race, and au­thors such as Nick Earls and Holly Ge­orge-War­ren. You Am I’s Tim Rogers was hold­ing court on the na­ture of rock star­dom. The singer was also pre­sent­ing songs from his up­com­ing solo al­bum, An Ac­tor Re­pairs (more on that soon), but was happy also to point out that he doesn’t par­tic­u­larly en­joy be­ing stopped in the street by peo­ple telling him he looks like Rod Ste­wart, as hap­pened to him on his way to the fes­ti­val venue, Bris­bane’s quite gor­geous Old Mu­seum. The fes­ti­val, for those in the neigh­bour­hood, is hav­ing a se­cond out­ing in Mel­bourne to­mor­row.
