Don't miss this rare Melbourne appearance of Totally Gourdgeous.
Thursday May 18, 7:30pm.
They'll be trying out a bunch of exciting new material from their album-in-the-making, "Gourd in the Act".
Formed in 1998, Australian band Totally Gourdgeous is four singer/songwriter/musicians united under gourd. Indeed, playing instruments made from woody cucurbits, they make a manic, organic, folk/funk philosophy to feed your wildest pumpkin longings. Penelope Swales (guitar), Carl Pannuzzo (drums), Mal Webb (bass/mbira) and Andrew Clermont (violin/mandolin/guitar). Songs by themselves and a few dear friends. Imagine Joni Mitchell and James Brown getting down in Bob Marley's pumpkin patch via the Muppets. Infectious eclectic beauty in the gourdiest of costumes. All the instruments are made by Penelope under the guidance of world renowned luthier, Jack Spira.
