5 gigs not to miss this weekend
1. Joe Farnsworth
AMERICAN drummer Joe Farnsworth teams up with Australian heavyweight Dale Barlow for the Prime Time Quartet East Coast tour this month.
Regarded as one of the top jazz drummers in the world, Farnsworth is dedicated to the great tradition of jazz drumming conceived by artists like Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Billy Higgins and Arthur Taylor.
For this tour, Joe's sensitive hard bop style is perfectly matched against titan tenor saxophonist Dale Barlow.
NICK Sun emerged from the suburbs of Sydney during 2004.
This winner of the RAW Comedy National competition was also the only comic to take out the UK comp for So You Think You're Funny.
Nick Sun is the MC at this Months Home Crafted Comedy at the Byron Bay Brewery today at 8pm. Entry is free.
3. Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp
SONGS From the Latin Skies is Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp's latest album.
The release sees the artists together on stage, doing a bit of "Latin chillin".
Once the parties are over and the mood quiets down, Latin music can be moody, romantic, relaxing and sexy, and it's that feeling that Noonan and Schaupp have captured in the release.
At the A&I Hall, Station St. Bangalow, tomorrow from 8pm.
