We’re playing at Madam Wong’s EP Launch


Hi kids, Az here.

We’ve been keeping a low profile lately as I navigate the realms of having a pregnant Mrs. That will all end on the 15th May as my kid will be born and I can hit the town to celebrate whilst waiting for mum and baby to come out of hospital.

So there isn’t a better event happening in Sydney to celebrate at than at Madam Wong‘s EP Launch on Friday 18th May at the Hideaway Bar in Newtown, Sydney NSW. Your Johnnies will be jumping on the lineup with This Time Only to celebrate the Wonger’s debut release, followed by cans and more cans.

There are a few more reasons to celebrate at this show:

  • It’s rumoured that a member of Madam Wong will be losing their virginity at this show
  • This show will be the debut of our brand spanking new bass player – my brother Chris Holesgrove.
  • If you’ve been to a This Time Only show recently, you would have noticed a total hadsome stud playing drums for them. That’s our drummer, Craig Nelthropp. TTO’s regular drummer should be back in the lineup by this show and celebrating his triumphant return (apparently he fucked himself up or something)
  • Our band will be going into shutdown mode after this show as I’ll be bringing home my newborn and forgoing any possible sleep for the following 6-8 weeks – so, we won’t be seeing each other for a bit (Craig is going overseas for a while too). We’ll start up practicing again some time in July. Don’t worry, we’ll still be posting stupid shit every day on our website and social media. 😉

Here’s the Facebook event for the show – get into it and hit the “Going” button because, you know, you’re all hot and heavy at the thought of seeing Madam Wong on stage again.



We’re working on a bit of a special set list for this show that will re-introduce a few songs that haven’t been played live in quite a while. We think you’ll like it.

See you there Sydney-siders (and super-keen interstate travellers)!
