MY FRIEND THE CHOCOLATE CAKE, Springwood, Blue Mountains, FRI 11th August 2017

Launch the new album ‘The Revival Meeting’

Friday 11th August 2017, 8pm. Doors Open 7:30pm.

The song writing genius of David Bridie combined with the glorious strings of Helen Mountfort’s cello and Hope Csutoros’ violin are high in the curious collision of elements that have made My Friend The Chocolate Cake a sure concert draw, triple ARIA winners and a vivid presence on countless film and TV soundtracks these last two and a half decades. Their seven-album history is a multi-dimensional mural of modern Australia that illustrates its geography, its political mores and its predominantly suburban identity, all by the kind of stealth that makes the most haunting, exhilarating and enduring pop music.
Be there to witness the birth of their 8th Studio album ‘THE REVIVAL MEETING’.

“Abounds with beauty and life” – (Sunday Herald Sun)

“Beautiful, creative, sorrowful, masterful music by a bunch of lovely people…… Front man David Bridie cut a wry and sardonic figure, slagging off Kerri-Anne Kennerley, quoting Barry Humphries………………… it’s a well-known fact that those who truly know excellent Australian music when they see it all support the Cake. The band certainly justified their cult following with this excellent performance – right from opening number MFTCC commanded a rapt and reverent hush from the heaving crowd. You could have heard a pin drop throughout the whole song.” – Live review

7 time ARIA award winning songwriter and composer David Bridie comes to Paragon Café Katoomba following a month long tour of Canada’s most prestigious folk festivals. Performing songs from his acclaimed 2013 album ‘WAKE’, as well as a back catalogue of solo releases and scores for film and television, Bridie will present songs from his new release ‘Take the Next Illusionary Exit’. Created as a reward to fans who crowd funded ‘WAKE’, Bridie’s new album is a wild concoction of curios, oddities, rarities and b-sides. From humble beginnings to a collector’s item, the exclusive release highlights Bridie’s live favourites, and has taken on a life of its own. Expect to hear a cover of The Only Ones ‘Another Girl Another Planet’; songs from his bands My Friend the Chocolate Cake and Not Drowning Waving; the Nat King Cole ballad ‘Morning Star’; and ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’ – Billy Ocean’s golden opus.

Paragon’s Chef David Povelsen spent his first 4 years working at Solitary which saw the restaurant maintain it’s coveted position as a ‘one hatter’ in the Good Food Guide. In 2007 David realised a chef’s dream when Solitary attained 2 hats and was one of only 2 two-hatted restaurants in the state.

We are delighted to be able to include David and his talented culinary skills in these unique experience events at the Historic Paragon Café.

The menu will be an alternate drop, unless guests advise the cafe of preferences prior to the evening of the event. Please note that vegetarian options are also available by prior order.
