Come celebrate Jodi's birthday with her
A great alternative to the Big Day Out, and to celebrate the owner's birthday, The Joynt will host an event "The Little Day In", with eight bands playing between 1pm and 11:30pm.

First on the bill is Archer. Described as 1930's Mississippi blues / vintage, I'm sure they'll get the crowd moving and shaking. They hit the stage about 1pm.

Next up will be Brisbane locals Rattlehand who describe themselves as alt-country / rock / "outlaw country" genre of the 60's. Their set will kick off just after 2pm.

Then Cherrywood, from Melbourne, will play. Described as not quite country, not quite Rockabilly, I reckon these guys will encourage dancing too, starting about 3:50pm.

Kicking off about 5pm, Sydney folks Frank Sultana and The Sinister Kids, bringing their Mississippi Delta Blues. I've seen Frank Sultana a few times, and I was enraptured when he was playing a lap slide guitar. A must-see!

Another Sydney band, Papa Pilko And The Binrats, will play their "Wild Blues & Slick, Swingin' Country - Rock n' Roll... with horns" starting just shy of 7pm.

At about 8pm, Melbourne five-piece The Toot Toot Toots will bring their country, surf rock to what I expect will be a full-house at the Joynt.

By 9:30pm, yet another Melbourne band Brothers Grim & The Blue Murders will tempt you with their sexy voodoo blues. I've seen Brothers Grim a couple of times before and all I can say is "mmm, mmm, mmmmmm"

And headlining the night, about 10:45pm, with their self-professed porno country folk cabaret style of music, will be The Good Ship. This energetic eight-piece have to be in my top five Brisbane bands; if you haven't already seen them, you need to put it on your to-do list.

Doors open at 12noon, and the kitchen will be open for most of the day, so you can balance the food and alcohol in your belly. There's indoor and outdoor areas, with misting hoses outdoors to keep you cool. Tickets are $30, which is great value to see eight bands, and to celebrate Jodi's birthday, but be warned, only 400 tickets will be made available, so you'll want to secure one of these before they sell out, and trust me, they WILL sell out.
