9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Get Carter (pic round)
So we welcome South African quizmaster Shawn tonight, he debuts at a swanky new venue on the Southside called Damm 27.
Damm 27 describes itself as a bistro but if you squint your eyes a bit and buy a pint, it’s just a very nice boozer.
The quiz will ignite the passions and you might even find yourself in the company of well-off Edinburghers who like to splash the cash on bonnie cocktails. You never know.
Anyway – the place looks genuinely nice and Shawn would love to see you tonight from 9pm. Give him a chance and give the place a go.
Meanwhile, here are the free answers for tonight’s quizzes:
First is a music round answer for the Joker earlier on (7pm). It’s Calum Scott who I presume is some kind of X-Factor bloke…
Sure enough, his WIki bio has revealed that his breakthrough came on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ which could be renamed ‘Britain Must Be Stopped‘
There’s a gratifyingly disappointing detail in Mister Scott’s bio which is that he used to sing in a Maroon 5 tribute act called Maroon 4.
Can anyone think of any more debilitating showbiz gig than being in a Maroon 5 tribute?
And that’s fair comment but the bottom line is that this unknown-to-me mega-bastard has more than 350 million views on his video and likely DOING ALL RIGHT.
Does it matter that it’s nothing more than the act of slowing down a dance number and adding meaningful twitches on sad faces? Does it matter that this cheap template is what people accept as art?
Of course not. It’s the bottom line that matters. This is capitalism.
Meanwhile, here is the music round answer for Shawn’s quiz at Damm 27.
Something a lot more groovy: it’s Kool And The Gang:
By the way – if you try to watch that video and you feel all funny, it’s OK – it’s the video. It’s not you.
Go and meet Shawn or I’ll see you tonight myself.
