Custard formed in Brisbane in 1990 and spent a decade recording albums and touring the world. Notable works include Apartment, Music is Crap, Schtum and Girls Like That (Don’t Go for Guys Like Us). They split up in 1999, waited 10 years or so, and returned in 2015 to record the album Come Back All Is Forgiven, then 2017’s The Common Touch. Support is from World Turtle World. Their sound? Dynamic synthesiser rock. They take listeners through a sonic odyssey, weaving lyrical themes of esoteric poetry with the absurd, leaving audiences wondering which is which.

Creepytown @ Daylesford Secondary College

Daylesford Secondary College’s 2018 production is a new musical, called Creepytown. It’s about a vampire girl, Lucy, with a count as a stepfather and a strict, traditional mother. Lucy finds a friend in a human girl with dentist parents, Jane. Jane and Lucy instantly become best friends, but soon realise it isn’t going to be that easy. Jane is a human who works by day and sleeps at night and Lucy is a vampire who can’t go out in the sun. What happens next? Come along on September 6, 7, 13 or 14 to find out. Tickets are available from the Daylesford Secondary College school office. – Lucinda and Nathaniel Lowe, DSC students.
