Coming up, coming up

Ever played with your penis and thought, “I’d like others to see this”? No? Well, that’s pretty normal. But back in ’97 a couple of lads thought differently: “Why not stretch my scrotum to create a a replica of a boat under full sail and show it to people who enjoy seeing manipulated man-bits?”

Thus Puppetry of the Penis was born and has since become a world franchise.

See this genital origami live and with big screen close-ups (great) when Puppetry of the Penis comes to Lismore Star Court Theatre on Thursday, February 4, at 7.30pm. Come one, come all.

Tickets are $34.90/31.90 from

Huckleberry Swedes are a five-piece outfit hailing from South Australia. And they’re a great live act.

Since 2006 they’ve been cruising this wide, hard-drinking land, playing gigs at all the major festivals including Byron Bay Blues and Roots, Apollo Bay, Gympie Music Muster, Fuse Festival, Tamworth and the Robe Village Fair, as well as performing their own tours. And making CDs.

Sometimes they’re alt country, sometimes soul, sometimes R&B. Huckleberry Swedes sing songs about important things like fishing, pies, and sweethearts.

You can check ‘em out when they play the Tatts Hotel in Lismore on Wednesday, January 27. Support act is The Black Ghost Party.

Doors open at 7.30pm; entry is $10.

Buggirl will play the Tatts Hotel in Lismore on Monday, January 25.

What better way to celebrate Invasion Day than with some full-on, no holds barred, Aussie pub rock. Buggirl has been promoting their CD Blood, Sweat & Beers and will be in top form for their much-anticipated return Lismore show.

Also playing are Ox (ex members of Fort) and Drunken Munk.

Tickets are $13 pre-sale from Music Bizarre in Lismore (Magellan St) or $15 at the door.

Doors open at 7pm.
