The Beards @ The Cranka, October ’09

I knew the Cranker would have sketchy lighting for this show, having shot there a few times in the past, so I rocked with flash for these shots.

The addition of a large flood light on stage helped a little, however I think this set from me is a dud. Maybe it was because I was pissing myself laughing? lol!

The Beards are somewhat of a novelty act, with all their songs written about beards (and even titled with the word Beard!) Their quirky humour hits the spot for me, with lyrics like: “If your dad doesn’t have a beard, you’ve got two mums“.

Recently, they performed at the opening of the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Alaska, where they delivered their message of beard love to a audience who of converts. I’ve always thought they would sit perfectly as the opener for a Ween show?
