On the patio of Flicker Theatre, Johnny Tumble had fumbled his White Russian, resulting in an electric explosion of ivory that rained down on Zeb’s left slipper. As clockwork, we stumbled inside to catch The New Sound of Numbers‘ set, which was riddled with fiddles of the groove that left us in a trance and feeling some what tribal. Quickly out into the 31 degree Athens night and (approximately) 13 giant steps to the left and you will arrive at the 40 Watt club, and on this particular night they are hosting The Music Tapes’ performance of their “Traveling Imaginary” touring eXXtravagansa.
Julian, Robbie, and friends set up a circus tent inside the club, complete with flying bells, moons, horns, whistles and the bowing of a banjo. God help any poor soul that gets hold to a bad trip and much bliss can be expected to those settled comfortably underneath the ‘big top’ as something truly interesting and remarkable is happening before you. Then, all of a sudden – you count down from 5 and it’s over, the lights are out and the tent is gone.
