We saw/heard these guys (Tjintu Desert Band) last night in the Songlines tent at Woodford. They were my first “live” experience of hot central desert Australian Blackfella pub rock … great new material and excellent band, especially the cool guy on the keyboards, (where I like to imagine myself). Were you there?
It was our first big day in the mountains north-west of Brisbane … started in the Concert tent with the Starboard Cannons, then to the Bazaar tent for Rachael Dadd and finally for the morning, to the Grande for the amazing Scottish wonders Tim Edey Trio.
Lunch at Govindas then setting up our camp in Tent City before returning to Blues Town for Brisbane band The Company, into the Palace tent for the Doogans, dinner at the Marrakech Express and back to settle in at Blues Town for the Empressarios and the Brass Knuckle Brass Band.
Betweeners: We drank a bold new vodka cocktail called a Crapple at Bill’s Bar, sank a Champoine and a Champino Kolada and drank brilliant cold teas at Eshai TeaHouse. Where did you drink?
Here they all are:

The Company (historic video, hairstyles have changed!):
and finally the Brass Knuckle Brass Band.
