Many moon’s ago Spooner Shane recorded an EP with a bunch of his friends. He now releasing that EP and to help launch it into the world he is going to spend a day doing THREE LIVE STREAM CONCERTS ON THREE DIFFERENT PLATFORMS IN THREE DIFFERENT TIME ZONES so that all my pals around the world can watch if they like.
It will be a fun mix of songs from the EP, covers and Q&A (if people wanna ask anything).
The time different thing is complicated but times/dates below are for the time zone stated:
MONTREAL/TORONTO – June 4th, 10pm
on Instagram Live – @Shaneadamczak
MELBOURNE/SYDNEY – June 5th, 7:30pm
on Facebook Live – /Shane.Adamczak
PERTH – June 5th, 9pm
on Youtube Live – youtube.com/uplatelivetv
THE EP IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE!
The shows are free, but I do hope you will go buy the EP for $5 (or more, if you choose) and on June 5th, Bandcamp are waiving all their revenue, so 100% of the money goes to the artist!*
*All money raised from sales on June 5th will go to supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement through actblue who will split the money between several important causes including aiding bail bonds and racial justice organizers.
It’s a rough time to be a performing artist, especially if you work primarily in live theatre, BUT we here at Weeping Spoon always like to try make the best of a bad situation. Spooners Shane Adamczak and St John Cowcher, were, supposed to be on an Australia National theatre tour right now which was cancelled due to COVID19 amongst several other projects (including three weekly comedy shows at the club Shane manages). Instead, like many artists we are stuck inside. We decided to create a weekly online concert series where we would collaborate on songs via the internet and invite some of talented international friends to join the party.
Welcome to our digital concert series. Stay home. Rock out.
You can find the shows for FREE on the UP LATE LIVE YOUTUBE page. A new concert goes live every Saturday Night 8pm (AWST/Perth Time) and if you watch at the live launch you can live chat along with us and some of our awesome guest performers.
Currently featured as part of The Social Distancing Festival!

We’re super excited to announce just some of BRAND NEW Zack Adams merch which will be available at all upcoming shows! Button badges, guitar pick and MORE! Super limited stock so don’t miss out!
Join Captain Spaceship (Esther Longhurst) and her crew of intergalactic riff-raff as they travel through time and space exploring the cosmos, discovering new uncharted worlds and narrowly avoid copyright infringement.
Inspired by 1950’s Sci-fi serials, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Firefly, Red Dwarf and 90210, the Captain and her crew will make up their ongoing epic adventures live onstage aided by the audience’s suggestions. They could end up anywhere and anyWHEN and will have only their sharp improv skills, some cheap costumes and maybe some lasers to defend themselves!
Featuring members of Perth’s own improv-comedy institution The Big HOO-HAA! And the cast of the multi-award-winning FRANKIES, this is going to be one of the hot comedy tickets this Fringe season!
