I’ll be at the Fall Ball dancing the night away. For those interested, I was told people who do the class beforehand will learn how to do a charleston and some of the variations on it.

I may as well chuck in a quick plug for “Lend Me a Tenor” – final three performances tonight and tomorrow (matinee and evening tomorrow), at Canberra Reperatory, Theatre 3 – The matinee tomorrow only costs $20, so book fast or face another sold-out house. Pretty much everyone who’s seen it seems to love it, so get in now or feel dejected ’cause you missed out.

Jumptown’s “Fall Ball at the Albert Hall” is on tonight (Friday) at the… well, Albert Hall 🙂 Live Big Band music (locals Spectrum Big Band are playing).

Tickets $35 at the door, introductory dance class at 7pm, Ball starts at 8pm.

Interesting to see something other than a rug sale or psychic expo at the Albert.

Saturday at the Pot Belly.

REVOLVER…

Revolver is a three piece outfit with loud amplifiers, a guitars, bass and drum kit and some other gear which they aren’t really sure about. Although not the prettiest band around, they would lose a beauty contest to Shrek, they describe themselves, modestly, as fairly average looking with no real dress sense, except for the drummer who, unusually for a drummer, is educated, reasonably good looking and doesn’t buy his clothes at cheap op shops.

Given this, they play with enthusiasm and some talent due in the main to their bald guitarist, without whom the band would not exist, or at least, would sound rather strange without. Their influence are as wide ranging as the Beatles, Yardbirds, Kinks, Bowie, Hendrix, Blind Melon Chetlin and Doris Day, which is, in the main, the major influences of their bass player and vocalist who has been variously described as untalented, tone deaf, alcholic or all of the above.

Whether or not the above is true is probably irrelevant as Revolver, as a three piece, give it a good shot at repeating the glory days of the power trios of the late 60s and early 70s, albeit, without the outrageous clothes, serious long hair, antiquated equipment and thousands of screaming girls, although they would gladly welcome the thousands of screaming girls. In addition, all members of Revolver have some serious tertiary qualifications which really makes no sense in the context of this band review.

I think there is some kind of Multiple Birth association BBQ, party, fundraiser or something – and the Logan twins are the publicity for it.

The Big Brother winners twins Greg and whatsisname Logan (or whatever they were called…) are going to be at Boost Juice in the Canberra Centre at an unspecified time on Friday.
