Fuck Fucks

with Fred Negro & Dave Moll and special guest Jackie Fingertoes
Xchange Hotel Footscray, Sunday 8th March 2009

The only time I go over the western suburbs is on my way to the Queenscliff Music Festival each year in November, so it was great to be able to go to a gig in Footscray in the afternoon so I wouldn't have to worry about how I was getting home.

Thanks to Rohan for letting me in when I arrived early or I would have had to hang around outside for half an hour.

Fred and Dave played first with special guest Jackie Fingertoes. I thought it went well and the people who arrived early enjoyed it.

Rohan's movie "Fred Sounds" screened in the break. I hadn't watched the movie for a while and it was great to see again. Hopefully I will get to see Fred's Love again as I forgot to ask Rohan if he had a copy.

A lot of the old-school St Kilda crowd now living in Footscray turned up to see the Fuck Fucks and no doubt stayed until late. One bloke even attempted to do a break dance spin on his head while they were playing. The Fuck Fucks played one long set, not even stopping while Dave went to the dunny. I don't often get to see them playing during the day so it was great to see so many people enjoying them in a new venue.

I thought the Xchange was a great venue, the drinks were cheap and the food was great. I think the venue would work very well as a once per month on a Sunday arvo or once every few months for a special event. Although it might be a bit scary, SixFtHick would work there as there is lots of space for them to jump around in. There are a few Rockabilly bands who would also do well there as a lot of the audience seemed to be from that crowd.
