Welcome to the second of two live versions of The Adelaide Show Podcast, as part of the Adelaide Podcast Festival. And thank you to Rumpus Room Studio for more great photos.
This is NOT our usual format but that will return in episode 186.
Tonight, our guest is Brett Monten, our original musical curator, singer/songwriter, and founding member of Voodoo Tattoo. And we’ll be discussing the music scene in Adelaide and South Australia.
We’re also hoping to involve our live audience in a rendition of our theme song.
This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is Coopers .
Dr Bill Griggs, Director Of Trauma at the Royal Adelaide Hospital will be back with yet another snippet from our interview in episode 183, but this time on the nerdy subject of Geocaching.
Nigel will try to stump the audience with IS IT NEWS on the topic of unusual crimes in South Australia.
Plus, we’ll continue our new segment, 100 Weeks Ago. This week, it’s been 100 weeks since Andrew Andrews joined us to reflect on a flare up in xenophobia.
And Donnarumma return, this time with their song, Broken Strings, in the musical pilgrimage.

|00:05:21||Stories Without Notice- Brett Monten of Voodoo Tattoo
Our first musical curator, Brett Monten, is with us tonight and given we are in a pub it makes sense to get his views on what the music scene is like in Adelaide and South Australia at the moment.
You do solo work and you’re also part of Voodoo Tattoo – how would you pitch your band to the owner of the Elephant British
Is there much scope for original music out there?
How do you read crowds? And can you modify things, given you probably have a set list?
What is the best way to support local bands
We see a new band on a Saturday night – what has led up to that? Rehearsals, planning, juggling work, etc?
What do you make in a gig and how does a band like Voodoo Tattoo fund itself?
Can you set goals as a band, or is it like prospecting and you’re just ready to react when you hit gold?
Finally, you wrote our theme song and you envisioned it being sung by happily tippsy people in a front bar. Do you want to give it a go tonight, in getting that feeling?

|A snippet that didn’t make the final version of episode 183 in which Bill and Nigel wander off on a long discussion about geocaching, leaving Steve a little lost in the shadows.|
|00:24:18||100 weeks ago
|A snippet of Andrew Andrews, a local entrepreneur and business person, who joined us in episode 85 of The Adelaide Show at a time when xenophobia was rife again. Sadly, the WA election and Donald Trump’s election have conspired to give an outlet to such fear-inspired venom again. In this cut, Andrew was highlighting how there are many reasons that prompt people to flee their homelands, by sharing the story of how his family had to do it twice.|
