Last night at The Front in Lyneham there were no knitters to be seen, gruntled or otherwise.
There was, however, a throbbing crowd and diverse crowd of all ages. And four musicians sitting on a couch passing a guitar around.
They took it in turns to play their songs, often interrupting themselves mid-song to explain pieces of the writing and sometimes taking questions from the audience afterwards.
The video gives a taste of the magic (and the crash of the bottles), as well as a sample of the sort of songs one can expect.
The mind boggles at the thought of what Sanji Dasilva will be like next week in a format which positively encourages him to talk. We might get a song in there somewhere.
The music starts around 7.30 but I’d advise getting there early to get a seat. It costs a recommended $5 donation at the door.
It’s a great way to spend a Tuesday evening.
