Crap Song Club

This is an intensive songwriting workshop run over FOUR MONDAY AFTERNOONS on Zoom.

Come and write some crap songs with Australian Songwriting Retreat! Going through a bit of a lull in your writing? Got a block the size of the Eiffel Tower in your brain? Just cannot get past the blank page? Get out of the way of yourself and commit to FOUR songs in FOUR weeks.

Rose and Delilah came up with the idea of the “Crap Song Club” after bandmate Karlee (The Holy Smoke) was having a hard time with a creative block and a blank page. “Just write a crap song!” And so she did…and it was wonderful. You see, once she got out of the way of her perfectionist brain, threw some spaghetti at the wall and was curious about what stuck.

So this really is a series of workshops to pry the perfectionist claws out of your brain and massage your curiosity and wonder with writing because done is better than perfect!

Wednesday 29th May – 7:00pm-8:30pm Brisbane GMT+10
Wednesday 5th June – 7:00pm-8:30pm Brisbane GMT+10
Wednesday 12th June – 7:00pm-8:30pm Brisbane GMT+10
Wednesday 19th June – 7:00pm-8:30pm Brisbane GMT+10

Each week you will receive a new topic on the Thursday before the class (so you receive the first topic on Thurs 23rd May). Your mission is to write a song (for example, verse, chorus, bridge, outro) with the allocated topic and then present it to your class on zoom.

The only rule – there are NO DISCLAIMERS. We all enter the Zoom Room with the understanding that this is a SAFE SPACE where early works can be shared, changed, deliberated over and massaged into the best form possible. Nothing prepares you for performance other than just doing it. The only thing that will happen if you keep writing songs, is you’ll get better. What have you got to lose.

Perth – 5:00pm
Darwin – 6:30pm
Adelaide – 6:30pm
Brisbane – 7:00pm
Sydney/Melbourne/Hobart/Canberra – 7:00pm
