Home of Chris Pickering Experiment and Chris Pickering - writer/composer
The Experiment is playing next Thursday July 12th at @retreat_hotel_brunswick in a double header with John Fowler’s Vanity Project. Power pop and desert twang for everyone. Photo credit to @brookerussmusic taken at the Spiegeltent on June 1st 2018.
James pulls a BV face, and Ben pulls a ‘what type of paradiddle am I going to play next’ face whilst The Experiment do music at @thebridgehotelcastlemaine last weekend. We next play The Union Hotel on Feb 3rd at 9:00pm. Two mighty sets.
I’m the feature of this week’s Retreat poster! It’s nice to tick off life goals. Come see The Experiment play at @retreat_hotel_brunswick tonight alongside @silverspringstagram from around 8:00pm. It’s our last gig of the year, so we’ll be seeing 2017 off with some noise.
A new season of The Plough has kicked off: a podcast about music from myself and @rohannichol where we talk about records we like. The first record of this season is a doozy too. Sometimes it’s funny, but it’s always groovy. Check it via your podcast app or at theploughpodcast.com.
This is tonight in Melbourne. God give me patience, just no more conversations... #morrissey #thesmiths #livemusic #melbourne
Our next gig is going to be some fun - The Experiment and I are playing a set of Morrissey and The Smiths at @drunkenpoetmusic next Tuesday Sept 26th at 8:00pm. I know, I know, it's serious. #melbourne #morrissey #thesmiths #livemusic
I'm lying in a deck pool overlooking the Hollywood hills on a slow valium afternoon, or I'm listening to @_roadhouses_ live. Either one.
Tomorrow night we join our friends @_roadhouses_ to help them launch their new single in Melbourne with a show at @thegracedarling hotel, with @catherine.traicos on the bill too. Come down: there's twang, regret and enough ennui to lose yourself in. $10, 8:00pm.
So I've been writing a bunch of new music, just not the kind you may be used hearing me play. Some of it is getting premiered this Tuesday Sept 5th in a concert at 7:30pm in Melba Hall at @unimelb in Parkville, Melbourne. Free entry, free culture.
I definitely don't remember this extra character being on stage at our last gig - but the camera doesn't lie. Come catch the Experiment live at @retreat_hotel_brunswick tonight alongside Al Carr and The Strong Arm. The music will make you see things.
