Lock Up Your Sons!

Last night I went to a concert. Correction it is now Friday so on Tuesday night I went to a concert.

It was called Lock up your Sons. It was a presentation of 4 guitar toting ladies, Georgia Potter, Deb Suckling, Jackie Marshall and Emma Louise. Each of the ladies were introduced by a man/boy who has had something to do with each of the ladies, that was a really nice touch. Each of these ladies had their stories to tell and each played with a special feeling about them. I have seen Georgia a few times so I knew that she would be good. I saw Jackie Marshall supporting Missy Higgins back in May and looking back now I don’t know why I have not been to see her again since then as she blew me to the wall, damm. I had no idea who Deb Suckling was till she was introduced and then I was blown away again, over the years of listening to the zed’s and reading the street press I have often heard about a local band called Brindle, turns out she is the singer from said band. The final member of this group of ladies was the youngest at just 15/16, her name is of course Emma Louise, she hails from Cairns, she won the 2007 Q Song Peoples Choice Award which tells you all you need to know and that is that this girl/lady is good.

To give you an idea of the night, here is the promo poster that was up round the place. Does it not sound like the most interesting night?

One thought on “Lock Up Your Sons!”

  1. Hello Helen,

    My name is Valerie and I have been doing quite a bit of unsuccessful web searching to find once again a photo of a bromeliad that I gave to a friend of mine. I once found a great site with thumbnail photos of quite a large variety of flowers and if you clicked on it, you got the name of the type of bromeliad etc. I cannot find that web page again. I did in fact find your photo of the bromeliad that I need the name for.

    It is http://www.flickr.com/photos/helenpalsson/177362398

    Would you please be a dear and tell me what the proper name of this bromeliad is? I would truly appreciate it. I would like to give my friend all of the instructions for care that she needs for the exact plant that I gave her. Also you must be told that you do not list an email address, only a website. You may wish to figure out some other way for folks to talk to you other than this comments page.

    So you are in Australia? I am in California, USA near the ocean.
    Hope to hear from you soon. Take great care and Happy Holidays.

    Fondly, Valerie
