TOBIAS & BARTHOLOMEW present

DIE ROTEN PUNKTE All the way from Berlin! He’s Otto. She’s Astrid. They’re brother and sister… and they’re in the greatest rock’n’roll band in the world; Die Roten Punkte. Living in a lipstick smeared self-important punk rock mess, sibling rivalry never tasted so good.

“A deliciously quirky and original piece of comic nonsense…” The Advertiser “Iggy Pop-esque posing from Otto, Björk attitude from Astrid… the sulky sibling dynamics wonderfully awkward, and the level of self-delusion spot-on.” The Age “Die Roten Punkte are angry, narcissistic tantrum-lovers… it’s observation of rock music’s pouty pretentiousness is sharply done.” Sydney Morning Herald

GREG FLEET in Fleetle Mania Fleety intends to show the world the true nature of the love we share. But, where to start…? Recounting a life of living on nothing but good pizza and great wine for 6 months while doing breakfast radio on SAFM? The great Haigs chocolate raid of 2002? Of course there were the days that didn't get on so well….like the time the roof of the Austral fell on Fleety...but that was then, this is now. Clever themes are out, mania is in! Kick back and cop some Fleetle Mania.

THE ADVENTURES OF THE MAN WITH THE DOMINANT CLAW

ANDREW McCLELLAND'S Mixed Tape

Born with a giant crab claw for a right arm, every day Jordan Raskopoulos (TV’s The Ronnie Johns Half Hour) struggles in a country where he ‘looks like a lobster, but feels like a whore’. This is his powerful story. An hour of comedy, music, stories and seafood. There’s even an obligatory giant notepad.

Andrew McClelland loves music. From chart pop, indie, power pop, be-bop, country, electronica, soul, doo-wop to metal, thrash, grind, hard and various other 'cores'. From the fellow who brought you the award winning 'History of Pirates' and 'The Somewhat Secret Secret Society Show' comes a story about the important things in life. A celebration of music... with jokes.

Dircected by Francis Ford Coppola

MEN OF STEEL The runaway smash hit of last year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival is coming to The Garden! They Come, They See, They Conquer.

URBAN SHADOWS Jean-Paul Bell

RORY McLEOD UK

The Australian Premiere of a unique one person mimeo drama prior to its European Tour; Urban Shadows follows the wonderings of an outcast on the fringe of society, who is a resilient survivor conjuring up his own world of ritual, joy and romance. A tribute to the silent art of “thought acting”, much loved before the advent of talkies.

Rory McLeod, ex circus clown and fire-eater, a one-man soul band, poet and master storyteller, a modern traveling troubadour, and a political activist. His performance skills are exceptional. A harmonica maniac and trombone tragic, tap shoes and flying spoons, percussion and finger cymbals, driving guitar, howls and groans, like a real blues shouter he holds nothing back in his legendary performances.

FLAT ON YOUR BACHARACH

JUDE ELLIOT & TECOMA

Hailed by the Sydney Morning Herald as "powerful, sassy performers", Adelaide’s own nationally acclaimed 'Flat on your Bacharach' are back in town to take you on their intimate, mischievous travels through 40 years of Burt Bacharach's songbook. "...a skilful, affectionate tribute to Burt and Hal's oeuvre." (Whatever that means!)

A stunning double bill of new Australian talent. Jude Elliot has newly become recognized as one of Australia's most outstanding original female singer/pianist/guitarists and "showcases one of the more fully formed musical visions to find voice in recent times." With songs born in the desert and shaped in the city, Tecoma's unique mix of influences range from contemporary roots, to jazz and traditional middle eastern music styles. This is bold new music by one of only two Australian acts selected to play at Berlin's prestigious Popkomm festival in 2005.
