We cleared the gate about two thirty and in the way of Woodfordia encountered a number of old friends and acquaintances.
Highlight acts in order of appearance:
Buffy Saint-Marie Living legend. We only caught a couple of songs.
The Long Johns – A really nice blue grassy rock including a sousaphone
HighLife – Full disclosure my oldest friend is guitarist in this band. Fortunately I can honestly say they raised the roof with some tight as afro groove.
Jimmy Davis – Didn’t get the attention his singing deserved from me as I was too busy socialising.
Half Moon Run – Heard the buzz about town that this was the group to see. We were not disappointed they’ve a great big sound that will fill stadiums in the not too distant future.
Dave Callan – Who is a very funny man gave a dance performance like no other. Clearly a lot of work had gone into the choreography but the image of this man in a leotard twerking will not soon leave me.
Blue King Brown – Have always been good and watching them mature on the stages of Woodfordia has been a pleasure.
We finished the evening with the East End Cabaret – Who are a hilarious, sexy and very very rude pair of performers. In this show they were complimented by an AusLan sign language translator who nearly stole the show.
All of this complimented by tasty treats and plenty of delightful, peculiar and engaging street performers, puppeters and cosplaying ‘Game’ players. The game deserves more discussion, perhaps tomorrow.
What fun we had.
