Sport and music bounce off each other to their mutual benefit. The big crowd were right into it and got involved. Tim responds to a helpful suggestion from the back.
Fantastic bit of set dressing, with a genuine VFL single bed sheet.
Just after the half time break Francis held up the Bones McGhie shirt I donated for the Casey Tutungi raffle. He said "this was made by Nick Rees, are you here Nick?" (In case blog readers don't know, my name is Chris).
Vincent and I were sitting right in front of him in the same shirts. Might have had the light in his eyes I guess.
Both lads brought a sports bag onto the stage with them and pulled out an old touchstone of theirs. Richo went with "The Map" from his brief Tasmania representative career.
Tim wrapped up the night with a delicate acoustic reading of "Berlin Chair" on his tiny guitar.
