18 THURSDAY APRIL 10 2014 NTNE01Z01MA - V2 Josh Pyke will be playing a venue with plenty of bars when he takes the stage at Fannie Bay Gaol in Darwin Picture: ROBERT BARKER Get in fast for Pyke as gig could be a cell-out MUSIC punters will brave superstition to see indie rock favourite Josh Pyke when he plays in Darwin on Friday the 13th. The popular muso will return to Darwin for his new tour and take to the stage of the Fannie Bay Gaol. The venue is a change from the usual suspects in the CBD or Parap and will be a spooky affair as the jail, which some say is haunted, hosts the event. Nook Event Management director James Gough says he aint afraid of no ghost. I dont believe in ghosts, he said. Gough said he was excited by the chance to introduce NOOK fans to a new place to enjoy live entertainment. In my never-ending quest to find new venues I have wanted something outdoor and something different and Ive found it, he said. Pyke has played in the Top End as part of a NOOK event previously but now he has a bunch of new tunes. Hes really good, hes got a good vibe and will be perfect for that venue we want to create an intimate vibe so were encouraging everyone to bring their own cushions and beanbags and get comfy. Tickets for Josh Pyke go on sale today at nookeventman agement.com.au Josh Pyke, Fri, June 13, Fannie Bay Gaol, 6.30, $30 Hes really good, hes got a good vibe and will be perfect for that venue Match wits to secure top tickets DARWINITES who fancy their musical knowledge can head to the Railway Club this Saturday for the annual big quiz.

It is a fundraiser to help us get airconditioning installed into the wonderful old joint, Railway Club Secretary Anna Stewart said. ABC local radios Richard Margetson and Adam Steer will MC the evening. Darwin Railway Club Quiz, Saturday, April 12, starts 7pm sharp, tables of four, $10 entry Asia to get taste of Alice metal ALICE Springs death metal band Miazma will rock the stage in Darwin next Thursday before heading overseas to Indonesia on their first international tour. Accompanied by local black metal band Abysm, and technical death metal band The Crucible, the group will put on a show and entertain fans at the Happy Yess. Miazma has quickly gained a cult status due to their large and faithful local audiences and fierce live performances. The desolate surroundings of Alice Springs have provided Miazma with a wasteland sense of identity, giving the band a primal, confrontational complexity that they will bring to the Top End and Asia. Miazma was invited to play six shows over eight days in Indonesia off the back of a recent national tour and release of their latest album, Bacteria of This Earth. Miazma, Happy Yess, Thursday, April 17, 8pm, $10 Hand-crafted jewellery is wearable art ALL that glitters and shines is now on show at the Framed Gallery in Darwin. The Top End gallery is hosting its second annual jewellery exhibition with artists from across Australia contributing pieces. One of organisers, Diana Thompson, said all of the jewellery was handmade and crafted. Its wearable art, she said. Some art you frame on your wall, this is art you can show off in your day-to-day life, you can use it to express your personality. Ms Thompson said all work in the exhibition was for sale. Lucas Blacker (pictured) has flown from Sydney to contribute to the annual show. He said it was his first exhibition in more than a decade. Ive been working on ideas and different concepts, he said. Blacker first visited Darwin in 1993, where he met Framed Gallery owner Anne Phelan. He exhibited work on and off until 2001 including taking part in the original Bougainvillea Festival, which later be came the Darwin Festival. Blacker then decided to take a break, putting his work on hiatus until this year. Anne asked me if I wanted to exhibit and I said yes. His work has a nature theme but its certainly not all the one style. Its not totally organic, but there is that art, theres two sides to my work the organic side and the formal side, Blacker said. Annual Jewellery Exhibition, Framed Gallery, 55 Stuart Highway, Darwin, until April 30.
