Event Details

2 Shows (Doors 7pm & 10pm) // Seated // Social Distancing Restrictions Apply

Back in 2006 Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) founded The Family Dog  to promote his first solo album ‘Alas Folkloric’. They went on to perform and tour together. He and the band have recently been in the recording studio making the 2019 album ‘Bark Overtures’Jim takes pride in the fact that the recording is ‘old school’, recorded live to tape at Sydney’s Oceanic Studios.

The Family Dog is: guitarist Kent Steedman and drummer Paul Loughhead from Northern Beaches legends and punk rockers The Celibate Rifles, plus multi instrumentalist Tim Kevin from La Huva,  Exiles and Youth Group.  Live, this lineup is all about dynamics, from a whisper to a scream, through trippy psychedelia to blistering rock. With a few Oils’ classics thrown in. 

The Family Dog will preserve proper social distancing etiquette by limiting ticket sales, and are eager to play their first show at The Landsdowne, and promise to take the (now smaller) audience over 2 shows on Saturday August 15 on a sonic journey on their “Housebroken Tour".

Jim Moginie’s  twenty-five year contribution to Midnight Oil as a co-founder, songwriter musician and vocalist pioneered new ground, inflamed passions and challenged social justice and environmental concepts. Fresh from Midnight Oil’s reunion and massively successful Grand Circle World Tour,  Moginie is back and has picked up some of his own projects, in which he invested so much of his time and talents in the intervening years between Midnight Oil’s break up in late 2002 and the bands reformation last year. Moginie’s projects have included: touring/recording two albums with The Break, a surf/space/rock themed outfit whose members are ex-Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes and Hunters & Collectors;  his folk bands Shameless Seamus and The Tullamore Dews and The Tinkers;  avant-garde ensemble, The Electric Guitar Orchestra  and The Colour Wheel, where Jim’s music explores the attempts over history to prove the ‘connection’ between music and colour and synaesthesia. Jim also regularly  tours as a guest player with the Australian Chamber Orchestra. He has recorded 3 solo albums, Alas Folkloric, No Vans Mary and Triptych.  He also owns Oceanic Studios where he  has recorded and produced music with such luminaries as Sarah Blasko, Leah Flanagan, Midnight Oil, The Exploders, The Sleepy Jackson and End of Fashion.
