jelloI was reading the newspaper (Sun Herald) last Sunday and saw that Jello Biafra was in town doing a spoken word tour, so I bought a ticket for today, Tuesday. I bought some of the first 7inch singles that came out in the UK many years ago, so have a soft spot for the Dead Kennedy‘s. I have even had some of the downloaded Jello Biafra spoken word concerts and they are ok – he is quite an angry green-leaning person with many politics the same as mine.

From the theatre website :

Returning to Australia for his first band shows since 1983, former Dead Kennedy’s frontman Jello Biafra has now added a handful of talking shows to his extended schedule.

Entitled What Would Jello Do?, the talking shows follow on from Biafra’s you tube series of the same name in commenting on contemporary political issues, democracy, government conspiracy and cover ups, election fraud – the type of banter Jello is notorious for telling and for which he’s an excellent orator.

Anyway, Tuesday was a bit abnormal as I had to take Kody to the dentist in the morning and it was lunchtime by the time I got to work, then afterwards I went by train to Newtown and walked down the Enmore Road to the theatre. The gig was good, although quite a bit about US politics (maybe not so surprising…).

I took an incredibly bad photo here:


Afterwards I walked back to Newtown to the station, and eventually got home at almost 1am.
