David Rovics gave a riveting performance to an appreciative audience in Lismore on Sunday August 9, at the Winsome Hotel. Challenging, entertaining, informative ... David's performance is informed with strength, skill, and integrity. Anyone with a social conscience would have to come away from a performance by David feeling that they have shared some of that strength and sense of commitment.

Benny Zable hails Nimbin from New York where he has just been to an overflowing, charisma packed concert starring Pete Seeger and the Walkabout clearwater concert. Benny has this to say:
When your presenters play the Pete Seeger concert get them to sign the
petition Pete Seeger for Nobel Prize
Some good news story.
On Thursday I attended at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, the Peace Boat's 3rd
Annual People Building Peace Concert: A Celebration of Initiatives for a
Nuclear-Free World In Remembrance of Nagasaki Day.
I hung my dove and dolphin flags above the stage and the peace sign flag
bottom right hand side of stage. I put on my costume and mask and performed
around the plaza in my usual way. Towards the end of the rally/concert, I
danced with the flags.
It was a great day. Felicity Hill and Senator Joe Valentines daughter were
Pamela Timmins who filmed me at Indian Point, helped me set up a display on
the curbside that attracted Pete Seegers attention. To my delight he
responded to my request to be photographed and filmed with him. I was
introduced to Phil Sauer's at the Peace Film Festival by Pam who turns out
to know John Seed. Phil Sauers is a main player in the water not bombs
campaign that was also inspired by Pete Seeger. This is his website:
Anyway he introduced me to the Pete Seeger appreciation page for you to
check out and get inspired. <http://www.peteseeger.net >
There is also a petition to nominate Pete Seeger for the 2008 Nobel Peace
Please sign and post around.
Yours Benny Zable

This is a "cleaned up, re-edited" show of Aboriginal stand up comedian in action presented by Mandy Nolan, first recorded 13. Feb 2006 at the Byron Bay Bowling Club. Sean talks about politics, rascism, and life experiences as an Aboriginal in Australia. He is from Townsville, with family ties to Cape York, and the Gulf country. As a skilled dancer, musician, actor and impersonater, he brings down the house with his fast sketches and performances. Not shy to 'send up' some of his own people's curiosities, he unites black and white during his show with shared laughs.

Finalists of the Nimbin Poetry World Cup; performance poetry and selection of the winner. For the last 10 years Nimbin has awarded the Cup to the performance poet who, in the eyes of the judges and the people performs great poetry. This year, a woman was judged as the finest of the five finalists by a panel including the winner of last year's Cup. Challenging, amusing, witty, dramatic ... it's all there. Over the last few years performers have been coming from Sydney, Brisbane, and further to perform with the best of Nimbin.

Diana belts it out in her inimitable style for the Nimbin Headers soccer team, at a fundraiser benefit held last month. Locals braved the drizzle to see this loyal local perform for her people . Diana has made her mark in California and other parts of the USA, but isn't too proud to do a number of benefits for the local community. This homecoming Queen doesn't have a gun, but she has a enough attitude to take care of a dozen country towns like Nimbin. She wields emotional honesty with a talent for strong lyric. A raw, unplugged live performance with several of her signature tunes, that make her a favorite to a new generation.
