East Brunswick All Girls Choir at High Vibes

Can't comment on East Brunswick All Girls Choir as the venue it was in, maybe a hairdressers, was way too loud. Also the kids were all sitting down, at a rock gig, you kids are strange.

More High Vibes stuff to come.

Mashed up Sunday

First off got to thank John for tweeting this,

which then I found this

Muppets vs Electric Six - Gay Muppet Bar
then I found this

Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
Prodigy - Girls

Cheryl not Beryl

I love watching schizzapuff3 video's, heaps of silly dancing, all for promoting a Cheryl The Dance Party, sometimes held in a club in Brooklyn called The Bell House(I so want to go there when I go to New York), but I doubt everyone there would be wearing masks. Schizzapuff3 also has great tunes for there video, this track on this video was new to me, called 'Hold on' by Holy Ghost!.

Dollsquad and The Gung Hoes at Yah Yah's

Yah Yah's 10th September 2009, free

Dollsquad was very cool, with there rock, leather clad, all girl group, felt very fresh with comparison to Tim Rogers outfit The Gung Hoes. The Gung Hoes are made up of Tim Rogers, Davey Lane, Pete Satchell (Dallas Crane) and Evan Richards (Cold Harbour). Yah Yah's filled up with punters wanting to here Tim new outfit, although I know a few people that got bored and went across the road to see cool new kids play some new music (see the bellow poster).

Old and New

Did a little venue hop on Wednesday 9/9/09.

Bar Open had IN BETWEEN WORDS: readings & performances, covers of songs by The Triffids & David McComb. I this gig I managed to see Blackeyed Susans Trio and Single Men’s Drinking Club. Both were very good. Single Men's drinking Club did this great cover of a Triffids song that I don't know the name, but it started with spoken word then went all prog rock. The old problem I find with Bar Open is that there are too many seats, hard to walk around in the dark then bumping into one, and way too many people. I was sweating like it was 40c in summer and make it even more annoying people all around me were breaking wind, which made me run out of the Blackeyed Susans Trio to take cover.

After that went to the Birmingham and caught last song by Into the Woods and a full set by The Thod.
Later went to see the thod, young kids who have small turn outs to there gigs. This was the third time that I have seen them play, for a small venue the sound was good, a very much relaxed gig, with a few of the band members sitting on the tiny stage, also the princible tamorinist cracks me up with his campy banter.

Last Saturday at Yah Yah's

Saturday 29th August 2009, Yah Yah's, Free.

SUZIE STAPLETON - Solid performer, too many people talking in the background though, Isn't that a little rude though.

CRYSTAL THOMAS & THE FLOWERS OF EVIL - I've enjoyed Crystal live, some great guitar work, although a little loud, maybe this was why Crystal seemed to a little too loud to compete with the guitars.

JAMES McCANN'S DIRTY SKIRT BAND - He has some great song, although they went on a little bit, this was a really long set, and I grew tired, and so to the members of the band, and the keyboardist was seen at the bar on the last couple of songs (possibly a little self indulgent towards the end).

The Magic Box # 2

Late again at PBSfm doing my radio show, looking through the magic box for some gold.
