Q&A Scene: Abbie Cardwell for Dogapalooza

Tell us about your new single/album/tour?
I have a new single coming out in November called Guts, Grit & Lipstick and an album to follow in early 2018.

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
Usually the last song I have written.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote…
Tip 1 : A pencil or pen plus a hairband or rubber band will suffice as a make-shift capo if you are stuck without one during a show. Tip 2: If your harmonica brace breaks just asked for an audience member to jump up and hold it for you!

What, or who, inspires you?
I am deeply inspired by anyone that pursues their deepest calling. Pushing through cracks like a weed no matter what. That shit is contagious!

Which song do you wish you wrote?

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Chocolate, cause it’s a versatile treat. It can be serious and playful and um also good for you. (highest form of magnesium!)

What’s next for you?
Hitting the studio in Melbourne to record my new single

What’s your scene?
I missed it. 70s LA I’m pretty sure.

About Dogapalooza

Oscars Law & One Little Indian Enterprises are very proud to present Dogapalooza, Melbourne’s first dog-friendly (and hands down most adorable) music festival, is back for its trilogy edition on Sunday November 12th on the grassy noles of Richmond’s Burnley Park.

This adorable boutique festival is a quintessential ‘love fest’ of dogs (for dog own- ers and their dog coveting friends). After last years sold out attendances, increased production along with a bigger, better and faster stage fronted by RTR, more dog washing stations provided by Blue Wheelers and a Moon Dog Brewery Bar.

We are very pleased to announce the additions of Abbie Cardwell, Deborah Conway and DJ Mac Fleetwood (Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rumors album, and paying tribute to our devine music overlord Stevie Nicks) to the Dogapalooza line-up. Alongside our existing down tempo electro closing bracket featuring the exceptional Evangeline and Triple J golden boy Lanks.

All proceeds raised at Dogapalooza go to Oscar’s Law, Melbourne’s dog rescue groups: Stafford Rescue Victoria, Greyhound Res- cue Victoria, Melbourne Animal Rescue and Puppy Tails Rescue.

We like to consider ourselves as the Robin Hoods of event management, bringing the best possible, while making sure we raise funds for our beneficaries”. Dogapalooza is a lay-about-in-the-sun and take-it-down-a- notch offering, behold the wonder as a thousand dogs make friends and influence people to a soundtrack of Melbourne’s finest artists and spring’s sun- shine. These furry inner city hipsters (and their owners) have access to top notch ethical
food offerings (including Dogapalooza’s Funky Pies in-house pie stall, trekked all the way from Bondi), Rice & Dice, Waffle and Shake, Jerry’s Vegiburgers, Moon Dog Brewery as well as the dog loving stalls of our beneficiary rescue groups and bespoke vendors including rock dog denim jackets by Pethaus, Dogsbody Massage, Found & Hound, Hunter & Hound, Frog Dog pop up photography studio and a doggo’s very own food truck Canine Wellness Kitchen.

Official limited edition merchandise is available on site, as well as the uber exciting inaugural Dogapalooza Awards with categories including “best inner city hipster” and “quiet achiever”, for those of you who want to establish a social hierarchy, amongst the other owners at the dog park.

Ample cheap parking at the Burnley Park Circus site, Madden Grove/ Swan St, Burnley, opposite the Dogapalooza, Burnley off leash Park. Second release tickets are $35 for adults, $20 for concession and $10 for children plus booking fee, and available through Oztix.com.au
