Armaniac will be watching 2 of Melbourne's best bands over the next 3 nights:
Tonight the band from our wedding, the Hoodangers, will be at Bar Open, Brunswick Street Fitzroy, from about 10. Superlative musicianship combining a trad jazz base with Police covers, D&B rhythms, and improvised scatting about drunken escapades.
Friday night the Crayon Fields are supporting some other band I don't care about at the Northcote Social Club. The Crayon Fields are original and brilliant, very young but not genre chasing and lacking stupid half-chopped faux eighties haircuts or other unoriginal pretensions. I'd mention experimental Radiohead but I wouldn't be doing them justice, and they aren't as depressed as the 'Head either.
See you if I see you...
