ZEDblog Gig guide: 5/12/08 – 12/12/08

by

Mungo: I don’t have that many Gig Things this week, because Saul Williams is playing, and that’s all that matters to me. I can’t remember the last time I’ve felt so Fanboyish. No, wait, M.I.A last year. But that’s beside that point. I’m giddy.

Imogen: You are giddy? I nearly cried last night when I missed Andre Rieu…Man, who WOULDN’T want to see an over the top/ice rink spectacular equipped with horses/ elephants/ a life sized castle and a man playing Classical music’s solid gold hits? Amazing. Fan girl x 100. I was outside Suncorp weeping like a baby.

 Mungo: …Andre Rieu? Not to get all schoolyard on you, but my Fanboy crush could so run circles around your Fangirl crush any day of the week.

 Imogen: Oh Whatever…Andre has taken his shit ’round the world. He played 299 shows in Venice, Sold out over Europe, and well he’s just plain amazing. By the way…I hope you can sense my sarcasm. I’ll be joining you and Saul. For lack of better things to do this week I chose a movie theme. Summers in, bring a date and some mosquito repellent. Check it:

Mungo: 299 shows in Venice? Venice? Sweetie, It’s easy to play a bunch of shows if you stay in one spot long enough. Oh, and has Andre ever won the Sundance Festival Grand Jury Prize? Or worked on a brilliant album with Trent Reznor? Or given away said album for Free? NO! Have you seen Andre with out his shirt on? Not a pretty sight, but my man Saul…

 ..you were being sarcastic?

 Oh. I’ll calm down then.

Sooo, What’s on?

SAUL WILLIAMS

I cannot stress how much I am looking forward to this. In a world in which the bulk of hip-hop shambles around like it’s a bad zombie film, He is a one of those bad-ass human survivors keeping the spirit alive. Performing “with his band of intergalactic sound surgeons”, this will be a gig to remember. Sunday 7th Dec, The Zoo.
