The Vagabond

Garden of Unearthly Delights

7pm til March 18

It's been a crazy twelve months for the boys from AOA. Formed in Sydney and now based in LA and touring the world. Their YouTube video for their medley of four chord songs was seen by over 30 million people. Some, but not all, of those 30 million people are in a big tent in the Garden of Unearthly Delights tonight. When you enter the Vanguard to see Axis of Awesome the stage is dominated by three huge banners of Lee, Jordan and...the kid from Jerry Maguire. It is the first of many jibes at Benny's diminutive size. The show's title World Tour 2006, is a sneaky nod to the fact that it is a 'best of' show of their last three Fringe shows. Partially one suspects because their audience has grown so quickly many here tonight haven't seen this stuff yet, and those that have are happy to revisit favourites. So favourites like Bird Plane and Can You Hear The Fuckin' Music Comin' Out of my Car are mixed with new songs far too funny for me to spoil the jokes of. Needless to say there is an epic song about a bespectacled wizard and another about an inflatable man. Four songs is here too and Jordan, Lee and Chicken Little are an Axis of actual Awesome which you should get to anyway you can.
