Nail in the Coffin of Homesickness

12 Mar

The Baroness and I went to see Aussie music icon Paul Kelly at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA tonight. We were very fortunate to see him in such an intimate venue. If this had been Australia, he would have been playing to a much larger crowd. As it was, I think every Aussie ex-pat in the greater Washington D.C. area was on hand for his stellar performance. Walking into the bar it was as if we’d traveled through a rip in the planet and left the Virginia car park and walked into a nightclub in Melbourne.

I held my homesickness at bay until he hit this song. (recorded at a previous event in Chicago)

    Of all the singers to see when you have even the slightest hint of homesickness for Australia! Paul Kelly’s music is just wonderful isn’t it. 🙂
