Brisbane Music: The Grates' Patience Hodgson injures ankle @thegrates

Brisbane musician Patience Hodgson, lead singer of The Grates, injured her foot overnight while performing the last song in The Grates' set at the Southbound Festival in Busselton, Western Australia.

Hodgson, who is well known for her incredibly energetic stage performance, was taken to hospital in Busselton's only ambulance with a badly swollen left foot.

It is not yet known if the injury is a fracture.

EDIT/UPDATE: The injury is not a fracture, but a sprain with associated tissue damage. Hodgson will not be able to walk for a week.

This YouTube video shows a typically active performance by Hodgson at the Governor Hindmarsh hotel in Adelaide in late 2008:
