Colin Hay

8 p.m. Friday, September 14. Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

The '80s were rife with Australians on the radio dial. In those days, it was a given that you would hear Midnight Oil, INXS and — gulp — Air Supply while driving your trusty VW Rabbit to the Hi-Pointe Theatre. But it was Men at Work who made the United States ask, "What the hell is 'Vegemite?'" Fortunately for us, former lead vocalist Colin Hay still doesn't consider it overkill to answer the question. A solo artist for more than 25 years, Hay has released eleven thoughtful, moody albums (his latest: Gathering Mercury) and appeared in countless TV shows, becoming a reliable Trivial Pursuit answer and a captivating storyteller.

Colin Hay hasn't lost a step since his Men at Work Days.

Hippy Hippy Shake: Though Hay's 1994 solo album Topanga was released just as Boy Meets World was finding its TGIF groove, the record was not named for Cory's bohemian girlfriend whose boobs eventually became stars on the Style Network.
