Tex Perkins and Charlie Owen will be performing in duo mode for a very intimate show at the Ding Dong Lounge on Sunday 4th October for a one-off three-course Dinner & Show.

Needing no introduction, Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music and it’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the ground-breaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.

From the hard-edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea, whose extraordinary 1991 single ‘This Is Not The Way Home’ placed Perkins’ world-weary growl in a new musical context and heralded the emergence of an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.

Musical compadre Charlie Owen has played alongside Tex for many years as part of Tex, Don and Charlie, The Beasts of Bourbon, Tex Perkins and The Dark Horses.

Owen has produced albums for The Plunderers, Louis Tillett, Louis Tillett and Charlie Owen, and Penny Ikinger and has contributed as a session player on albums for the likes of Tony Buck, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, Robert Forster, Spencer P. Jones, Steve Prestwich, Conway Savage and Don Walker.

During the evening, music will not be the only delight for patrons as; Girl With The Gris Gris’ Head Chef Chris Weysham will be serving up a scrumptious three-course meal. Everything on the menu is an authentic taste of Americana and Creole/Cajun favourites from New Orleans.

Expect to be wined and dined by Chris Weysham and his exceptional Ding Dong staff, all to the soundtrack of Tex and Charlie performing a mixture of Beast Of Bourbon, Dark Horses, Tex Don Charlie Songs plus a handful of classic covers.

With less than 70 spaces available, this is a show not to be repeated or missed. Tickets for the show and full three-course meal are $100 +BF and on sale now!
