Cashews CD launch one heck of a party

johnboy 18 August 2008 37

Saturday night at Corroboree Park in Ainslie The Cashews CD launched reached Olympian heights as a contender for the title of the best party ever.

Late in the night things got crazy when I gazed at the sky and saw an alarming slew of new lights in the firmament. Fortunately, before I spread alarm, Amber explained that the right sort of eucalypt can reflect star or moonlight in appropriate conditions.

At a time when Min Mae’s Tableaux Vivant was fresh in our minds (the most beautiful people in Canberra getting naked in a pose, but you need to earn that image for yourselves babies) it was a big deal.

Having said that huge kudos to Andrew Walker for successfully popping the question to Nicole in front of the heaving throng.

Huge congrats to the Canberra Musicians Club (CMC) and the Cashews for putting together such a great show.

For a feel of a wonderful night check out the slideshow below. I could tell you more but why not turn up to the next CMC event and see it for yourself?

UPDATE The above was written about 4am after 12 hours of heavy drinking so I’m rather pleased about how it came out.

But… If you took pictures of the night and would like them included in the slideshow email them in to images@the-riotact.com – Thanks so far to SamTSeppo, Laurel_Waits and Overheard.

It was lovely to meet so many RiotACT readers on the night, even if you are all better looking and more intelligent than I am.

Finally, very keen to get your impressions of the night in the comments.

Thanks all.

Regular or diet.

BTW (is that the way you crazy kids write it?) I’m reliably informed by a brightly-coloured-haired Cashew that if you’re looking for a copy of the album (‘Small Ponds’ by The Cashews) it’s available at Landspeed Records and Smith’s Bookshop in the city, and online at http://www.myspace.com/acousticnuts

Actually, apropos of acronyms, WTF does IIRC mean?! I see it all the time here and still haven’t WIO.

Danman, just remember that Eyeball showed up to try and whiteknight for the Tharwa Drive girl and defend defacing property as a valid form of grief.

Hint: Before you leave high school, it might be worth learning that insults aren’t constructive criticism, and your lack of élan means we’re not about to start paying more attention or giving any weight to your comments, Eyeball.

Her? No.

High School? Before you developed teeth.

I didn’t show up for anyone or anything.

I don’t particularly care about dead girls and their friends and what they do with their lives. Especially when it doesn’t concern me, or you.

I’m just amused by all the bitching and whining over nothing.

Paint on the footpath? It’s even less of a concern than mythical terrorist groups and bird flu.

Now, back to the music…..

Cheers JB but it is pretty obvious re their other posts that they are not here to contribute in a constructive manner.

Warning heeded 🙂

Careful Dan, EIAQJOS is quickly working itself into the mod queue (take that as your warning EIAQJOS), no need to drag yourself down to their level.
