For those not from Sydney, the Bourke St Bakery is a hotbed of buttery smells, delicious pork & fennel sausage rolls, cheap coffee and the odd addict treading home from the methadone clinic up the road.
Impromptu audiences are pretty much our favourite thing and lucky for us Kevin Mitchell aka Bob Evans seemed equally entertained at his new ‘best mate Guy, as in, Guy Sebastian’ taking photos and throwing a couple of coins in Bob’s guitar case while he played. Kevin offered to use the change to buy Guy a coffee when we were done but he was stoked to just have an autograph from this “bloody legend”.
After this song, we spent the rest of the morning trawling up Crown st looking for a sunny spot to keep filming, but the construction of the new Surry Hills Library prevented us from finding the peace we were after. If you’re in Europe check out Bob while he’s on tour in October – Amsterdam’s Paradiso is a particularly special venue. Otherwise you can catch him in Melbourne later in the year.
