Fred Eaglesmith is on this week in Sydney, Thursday at the Vic on the Park in Enmore and Friday at the Bridge, Rozelle. I'll be at the latter. $30, I wouldn't recommend such a lay out lightly. You should go.

Speaking of hymns, courtesy of Honky Tony Highway I came into possesion of Eaglesmith doing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Praise be, indeed. It's takes the old chestnut (beautiful, wonderful sublime old chestnut, to be sure) out of the clouds and on to the back porch, a darkly down home psalm guaranteed to break your heart.

It's on some Canadian CMT Christmas collection, perhaps you can find it in the filesharing badlands.

Updated: to prove I do know how to spell chestnut despite getting it wrong twice in the space of six words.
