Jethro Pickett & Thrash Can

Some Velvet Morning, 123 Queens Parade, Clifton Hill

Jethro Pickett is a Tasmania based singer songwriter who in March 2018 released his sophomore record, France, via Phill Calvert's Behind The Beat Records. Written and Recorded between Dublin, London and Yikesville studio in Melbourne, France is a fresh sounding release with elements of freak folk and psychedelia. Melodic songs are at the core. He's just returned from a European tour and is working on new material. Order France at all good record stores or online.

With special guests, Thrash Can.

Thrash Can is a duo group made up of David M. Western and Hannah Blackburn. Together they sing thrash metal/folk songs that they themselves consider ‘in the trash’ for their own solo endeavours, however, the songs in question have found themselves a new home, into the finger picking and harmony singing double threat, Thrash Can. Also taking requests (but probably won’t know how to play them) and some covers of nice songs turned bad.
