||Does watching the world make you feel like a vegan reading abattoir catalogues? Ab Scan can fix it for you. Featuring Frankie Sinatra on guitar, with The Vegie Girl and The Butcher on vocals, theyíll make you laugh till you stop. (Warning: Subject to line-up changes.) Ab Scanís concerts comment, mostly satirically, on social and political issues. They have been compared to Tom Lehrer, by people who have never seen Tom Lehrer, to Weird Al Yankovic, by people who have never seen daylight, and to Tripod, by people who have never seen Ab Scan. But it does appear that audiences laugh and even sing along when they get told the words.
This week, as well as reliving many of their traditional unfavourites, Ab Scan will feature some songs from their latest project, ĎDirty Storiesí. As you obviously figured from the name, itís about the lived experiences of women and coal mining. This is an industry dogged by a history of struggle, layoffs and death, and so youíll also see a bit of Ab Scanís serious side on Tuesday night.
For those of you who don't know it the New Farm Bowls Club is on Brunswick St opposite New Farm Park. It has a great atmosphere, food, good parking, public transport, and a bar and a kitchen, open till 8.30pm. Click HERE to see what's coming up in the next few weeks.
