Something For Kate front man Paul Dempsey is standing poised at the edge of a metaphorical diving board marked ‘anticipation’ as he prepares to spend three nights in May playing brand new Something for Kate songs at the Gasometer Hotel, many for the very first time. In preparing to record Something For Kate’s long awaited 7th studio album, Paul (along with his SFK collaborators Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Hyndman) takes the view that the best way to whip new material into shape is to try them out live.

Paul described his motivation for this approach:” I find that the best way to stop overthinking new songs is to put yourself  in the situation where you can’t overthink them any more.You have to deliver them. The stage is the only place to do this… Its scary and fun and often shows you the way to improve on what you have.”

In addition to new material, Paul will of course play classic SFK songs, throw in some covers, and even take requests. ‘Loose’ is a word that’s been thrown around to describe the general approach to set list on all three nights. 

Dates are:

Thursday 23 May – The Gasometer, Collingwood, Vic 

Friday 24 May – The Gasometer, Collingwood, Vic

Saturday 25 May – The Gasometer, Collingwood, Vic
