Drawn Like a Magnet to ChurrOz

It is time again for Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Merkel and Myrtle saw a great performance by The Magnets. This six-voice a capella group. This is not traditional a capella singing as it relies heavily on the vocal beatbox gymnastics of Andy Frost. They sing mostly covers but the new arrangements all add something to the originals. This is essential when you have deep male voices doing unaccompanied covers of Blondie and Lady Gaga. The Magnets also took "Lets Dance" by David Bowie to a whole new dimension, creating something that eclipsed the original.

After the show, Merkel and Mytrle returned to ChurrOz on the food court that is established for the Cabaret Festival in front of the Festival Centre. They enjoyed the churros again, but ChurrOz also had thick chilli hot chocolate on offer. This was a great drink on a cold night and cost $4.00.  This was served with no adornment in a regular paper cup.
