Marc Robertson from Barrel of Monkeys playing a solo set at the potbelly on saturday from around 9ish.

Marc’s solo stuff is pretty amazing.. brilliant on the keys with an awesome voice.

That reminds me, the rest of the electric shadows stuff for the rest of this week is:

Thurs 23 Nov:
Y Tu Mama Tambien – 12.30 & 8.15

Fri 24 Nov:
Japanese Story – 12.30 & 8.15
The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Late Show at 10.30pm

Sat 25 Nov:
Microcosmos – 11.15am
7 Samurai – 1.30 & 8.15
The Goonies – Late Show at 10.45pm

Sun 26 Nov:
Water – 12.15 & 7.00
Modern Times – 2.30pm

So that’s a combination of Mexican three-ways, Charlie Chaplin, Kurusawa and Corey Feldman antics that can’t be beat.

First Test



Oxfam Christmas Fair – Albert Hall 9am-3pm Saturday.

Three theatrical events this week:

– Impro ACT has their last performance of the year this Sunday at 7:30 – “Wild”, in which the impro mob will be using Animal-inspired ideas to make stuff up for your entertainment and/or bemusement. Tickets range from $15-18.

– “I’ll be back before midnight” continues its run at Canberra Rep tonight, Friday and Saturday night at 8, with matinee on Saturday at 2pm. A thriller with gunshots, blood, family jealousy and all kinds of good stuff – according to my theatregoing partner, I screamed at least once, and since I’m a tough, rugged chap, that should count for something. Student rush tickets tonight are $20 or two for $24, otherwise range from $32 top price to $20 flat price for the matinee. Runs until December 9th.

– Shortis and Simpson combine with Peter J. Casey for their christmas comedy cabaret “A Miracle on Childer’s Street” – with gags on everything from Alan Jones to Cirque De Soleil (and undobutedly a few things that aren’t exceptionally gay, too…) Performances tonight, tomorrow and Saturday at 8 – tickets range from $20-30. Also runs till December 9th.
