18 Musos with nothing better to do

A review of the Jam Session 6th August

Well... a middle of the road sort of a Sunday in prospect, and despite the promises of a National Science Week, an Indian Film Festival, Planetarium nights at Spotswood, the Hot Chocolate Festival, skiing in the wherever you go to ski, Borealis on the Lake in Daylesford (oh for f***s sake), the FIFA Fan Festival (well, that has used up all the other F's in the toolbox) , Preston Market Italian Day (where, by tradition, they shoot the Fruiterers), and The Melbourne International Film Festival, (where by tradition, the Fruiterers shoot back), 18 musicians turned up, desperate presumably for diversion, at the 928th weekly Jam Session (I made that bit up) for a blow, a rattle, a twang, a tickle, a yodel, a gossip and a listen (*).

And you were all good - an entertaining arvo at the Victorian Wine Centre and combination Bottleshop. some new musos, some standards mangled, and we all stumbled out into the cool night air profoundly enlightened, no sadder, no wiser, and why not come again this Sunday?
