Hairs apparent

There goes November ... sorry, Movember, when many a young man grows a mustache for a good cause, then shaves it off. I don't know about this whole shaving business, but Zaphod's decided to throw a gig to celebrate the hirsute event. Unfortunately not many people came, perhaps because the onset of December also featured the sort of weather that keeps folks indoors with a hot drink in one hand. That didn't stop either of the evening's performers from rocking out.

First came instrumental trio Monobrow. And when I say instrumental, I'm not talking surf-daddies. These guys are more like 35007 (a.k.a. Loose) or Gore, as befits a band who record at Meatlocker Studios. Brian Ahopelto of Acres mans the drums, while Paul Slater and Sam Beydoun round things out on guitar and bass.

Big Jeezus Truck finished things off. How ong has it been since I've seen the long serving psychobilly-country-hard rock quartet? Last time was at Barrymore's, and bassist Spag had spiky blue hair. And I was shooting on film. I posted the pictures from that gig in April 2005, but may have been taken well before. They've still got that smoke machine, though!
