After Death DAAS
They might have experienced near death with the Lismore floods causing the cancelling of their shows last time, but they’re back, re-incarnated and funnier than ever.
Who doesn’t remember and love the anarchic ravings of The Doug Anthony All Stars from the Big Gig days? It’s a few decades and things have changed. Well Richard Fiedler got a bloody good job for a grownup at the ABC, and had to be replaced by Flacco aka Paul Livingston. The comedic trio present a musical comedy as wicked and dangerous as ever with an irreverent mixture of filthy faux pas, spirited singing and social commentary. Friday & Saturday, 7.30pm at Lismore City Hall. Tickets $41–47 + booking fee from lismorecityhall.com.au or 1300 066 772.
