Live at The Dome Dave Graney - Workshy

The second of the Live at The Domesessions will feature legendary Australian showman Dave Graney as he discusses the lengths he has gone to in order to avoid anything that really feels like work. In his inimitable style, Graney veers from a feckless childhood in blue-collar South Australia, to the punk rock scene of 1980s London, and beer-soaked nights touring Australia where he worked very hard at not working at all. But in slacking off, Graney became one of the hardest-working musicians in the industry; constantly evolving, reinventing, staying one step ahead of everyone - even himself.
