DAY 72: Learning tolerance at Crown Casino

11 Nov

THERE are scads of bars in the Crown Entertainment Complex. My mission is to sit through three songs from a live act in three such bars. I’ve collected the set lists, to prove I did it.

BAR 1: Tangerine
Against the gallop and kerching of pokies, Chunky Jam are ripping through their set.
1. Proud Mary – Creedence Clearwater Revival
2. Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
3. Superstition – Stevie Wonder

Bar 2: Atrium
This bar opens out into the games room. It’s a big joint, but weirdly I can smell Calvin Klein’s CK One all the way through it. Are they pumping it through the vents? Anyway, Stuart Wyatt is tinkling the ivories of the grand piano, in an extravagantly floral fashion.
1. Still the One – Shania Twain
2. Fame … no … I know this one … I’d Rather Be a Hammer? … Gah! Too abstract. Next!
3. It’s some kind of early ’80s theme tune … I’m picturing a horse galloping across fields, or possibly a dog … WAIT!! It’s Eternal Flame by the Bangles. Phew.

Bar 3: JJ’s
This bar’s heaps classier than it sounds, but the seat of the grand piano is vacant. Not my fault, nor my problem. Mission: accomplished.

Keeper? Actually, yes. I find it hard to resist a fountain sweeping down alongside a black marble staircase.

    I like the sound of the first band. Might have to see when they’re next playing
