The Crooked Fiddle Band (Syd) plus Mr Fibby (ACT) at the Merry Muse, Turner

By Overheard - 29 July 2008 9

On Friday 8 August, don’t hang around the shopping malls tripping over toddlers: get your feet (and other attached bits of your anatomy) to the Merry Muse and trip over the feet of punters and dancers.

The Crooked Fiddle Band are hhhhhhhot. But rather than my filling up a page with cut and pasted blurb, click here: http://www.merrymuse.org.au/ and read for yourself.

TCFB played a smoking gig with local loons Mr Fibby at the Phoenix last year and the place went off like a frog in a sock.

A perfect night if you want to escape the pre-Olympic Opening Ceremony bolshoi.

From 7pm-ish. $15/$12 (members and concessions). Fuel up on good Polish beer and dance yourself straight. (As opposed to ‘crooked’ — given other threads I thought I’d better be unambiguous about that one.)

The Merry Muse (Polish Australian White Eagle Club, David Street, Turner) is a not for profit venue of the not for profit Monaro Folk Society.

What’s Your opinion?

Both bands play awesome music, that’s the important thing.

Well said, magella. They do indeed.

Wrong pill?

Not sure if they’re into vitamins, DMD.

I can’t claim too much knowledge about what constitutes a hippie, but I thought it was more about ideology rather than hygiene: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/hippie

But I guess it could happen accidentally. “I was crossing the road when I tripped over my aura, bounced off a karma, and decided to go buy some hemp pants and beads.”

Either way, I don’t know if it applies to either band. Grahame from Mr Fibby (who are in the picture in the original post, by the by), has some pretty gnarly dreads, though.

Couldn’t they be accidental hippees? It’s possible. I hate hygiene. I just don’t play guitar.

Overheard 3:25 pm 30 Jul 08

Maybe. That could be the look they’re going for, though.

Deadmandrinking 2:50 pm 30 Jul 08

Nah, they look too much like a bunch of stinky hippees.
