A dramatic topic wrapped in a goodtime feel isn’t the easiest thing to pull off, but Melbourne blues and roots specialists The Hornets are pros. Climate change, or more accurately those who choose to deny or play it down, is a hot topic. It is also the inspiration for The Hornets’ new album, Dangerous Dancing. The album is the sixth for the band considered by some to be Melbourne’s best blues outfit. They feature a who’s who of Australian talent over the past four decades including Jeff Burstin, Daddy Wayne Duncan, Bruce Haymes, Andrew Ogburn, Chris Tabone and Craig Horne. According to their website, their upcoming show can be viewed as a call to action or simply a night to dance your cares away. The Piping Hot Chicken Shop, Ocean Grove – August 8.
