Fascinating Aida...

Last night Paul treated me to a night out in Stevenage's glitzy Gordon Craig Theatre to see the rather wonderful Fascinating Aida in concert.

Paul and I have been fans of FA for over twenty years and the girls haven't lost any of their charm. It was a riotous evening from the queens of topical satire, cabaret and musicality mirth. Their songs are at times witty, coarse and thought provoking; B celebrities, the nanny state, political hypocrisy and sex are favourite topics. Long may their reign. Here are some more snaps I took that evening.

Best new song: The Markets (a Gilbert and Sullivanesque romp through derivatives, hedge funds and arbitrage.)

Here is one of their songs as performed at Edinburgh last year.

    Did they do their new(ish) dogging song? It was a highlight of their Royal (HRH Princess M of K) performance in Jermyn Street last year!

  2. Yes, they did. Very funny.
