Let me tell you something. 3D television is sensational. I watched some last night for nearly three hours. Hugely entertaining and tremendously lifelike (much better than the 2D stuff we have been persevering with until now). That’s right I saw a television show like it was really live.
Hang on just a minute. It was a television show that was really live. It was Rockwiz on its national tour, last stop Bundaberg’s finest movie theatre, which was full to the brim (about 700-800 seats). As I remarked to the Jinxster, who accompanied me despite her roaring headcold, it’s probably the most people that have been in there for a while. Usually when you go to a movie you might see between 5 and 40 people. I think once I was the only person there for a showing of something I can’t remember.
I digress. Rockwiz live was slick, funny, witty, chock a block full of music trivia and actual music. Brian Nankervis ran the first half where he whittled 24 audience hopefuls down to 4. That was fun. And we all got to join in. He wouldn’t be out of place in a vaudeville show as the wickedly commanding MC. And then for the second half we got the show with Julia Zemiro wearing a stunning pair of red high heels and special guests Vika Bull and….wait for it…Steve Kilbey. I took a very dodgy iPhone video of him singing Under the Milky Way. What a treat. And Henry Wagons made a cameo appearance as the half time entertainment, returning at the end for the finale. Nice. We laughed, we guffawed, we answered questions quietly to ourselves throughout (ok that might have just been me but whatevah!).
A great time was had by all.
And naturally I bought a tshirt. Grey marle with tasteful Rockwiz logo. It’s not like I have a lot of tshirts already. Well it is. But you can never have enough tshirts, bags, gloves and hats (to poorly paraphrase Patsy Stone).2 Comments »
