We’re at a festival now in Busselton, on the West Coast, south of Perth. Michael Franti played an acoustic set last night and blew the place apart. John Butler of the John Butler Trio sat in and they really brought down the house. In the middle of the set some crazy Aussie kid free-climbed the center pole of the big-top tent and Franti almost missed a few bars watching and laughing at him. He made it to the top, probably 25 feet in the air, touched the canvas and slid down to raucous applause. Franti closed the set with a Sublime cover and brought a guy up on stage to sing along, and the guy proposed to his girlfriend of seven years. She said No. Ha! Yeah right. She had no choice. They got big hugs from MF for the occasion.
