Silver Heads and Golden Leaders
A fundraiser for the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund
Shortis and Simps were scheduled to perform two shows at the Cobargo Folk Festival at the end of this month. After the devastating fires that went though that area on New Year’s Eve, that event has been postponed. So, instead, they are doing one of those shows in Canberra, as a fundraiser for the Cobargo community.
The show marks their 25 years of performing political satire, and 25 years of the Cobargo Folk Festival.
Silver Heads and Golden Leaders is a comedic and musical history of Australia and the world since 1995. Recall the GST, the Ipswich Fish Shop, be reminded of being alert but not alarmed, of children overboard, of the GFC stimulus package, a hung parliament, a great big toxic tax, a suppository of wisdom, the ETS and the NEG, not to mention Shane Warne’s mum and John Hopoate’s finger. And that’s not all.
Their special guest is multi-instrumentalist, Dave O’Neill, who has been heavily involved with the Cobargo Folk Festival over the years.
This project is fully supported by Gorman and Ainslie Arts Centres.
Fri Feb 21, (sold out), extra show Sat Feb 22, 8pm, Ainslie Arts Centre, Elouera St, Braddon. $40/35.
