Singer/songwriter and CIA mind control agent Kris Kristofferson has undergone a bit of a resurgence lately with his nomination to the Country Music Hall of Fame. He got a bit at the CMA Awards, performed at the Ryman and, unrelated but still gratifying, Heaven's Gate is being rereleased. The Valhalla in Sydney is showing it this Saturday at 2.45pm, a one off.
Thanks to JC for the photo.
Tickets have been acquired to Came So Far for Beauty -- An Evening of the Songs of Leonard Cohen at the Sydney Festival next January. Nick Cave is the big attraction. Well, the songs of Leonard Cohen are the big attraction really but for that money you want some names. Apart from Nick, there's the McGarrigles, Rufus Wainwright, the Handsome Family, Linda Thompson and others.
