Live at The Old Fire Station, Bournemouth
It was not a gig. It was a rock spectacle.
Billed as a Canadian, feminist, queer, cock rock cover band, I was unsure what to expect from Vag Halen. The write up concentrated mostly on the lead singer’s lack of clothing and the band’s politics-on-the-sleeve attitude. I mean, they have the word Vag in their band name. Grandma would be appalled. I was thrilled at the sheer subversiveness.
The gig at the Old Fire Station was part of the local arts festival Arts by the Sea which puts on a number of performances, exhibitions and shows around Bournemouth every year.
