Blain Crellin speaks with TRIPOD here:
Tripod Christmas Turkeys – Two big nights of Tripod at MEMO Music Hall – Friday 9 and Saturday 10 December – 8pm
Christmas. We can’t avoid it. Not saying we want to. Well, sometimes we might. But it’s not going anywhere. Therefore, let’s hear some songs about it. Specifically, let’s hear Tripod poke their harmony-laden musical sticks at Christmas this year.

Tripod continue to bring an insane level of craft in both comedy and music and combine them in a rich and satisfying way – an ability that has cemented them as a much loved cultural fixture in Australia.
Xmas Turkeys promises to be a hilarious mix of suburban whimsy and dark satire, the perfect Christmas gift for those that love or hate Christmas and everything in between.

Etched upon the world.
It’s message is there
Never to be erased, as all
Who have come before
Have etched their lives
On the curtain of the
