The Wombat Bass


Johnny Ds- Somerville, Massachusetts

This is "Washtub" Robbie Phillips playing his homemade "Wombat" bass. Robbie is a fixture in the Boston roots music scene. We are lucky to have him here. He's toured with the likes of Spider John Koerner and G. Love and Special Sauce.

Bet that "Wombat" bass sounds real cool. The little purple pixies seem to like it.

Polona- Thanks so much! It was really a fun night. I was thrilled when we got a table right up front. Nights like this are why I try to keep my trusty Canon PowerShot S50 in my purse at all times!

Squarehead- The Little Purple Pixies is a great name for a band!

Thanks Chad and Dave. On this shot I have to admit I didn't smush the camera into my face. I got all high tech and propped the camera on two beer coasters on the table and took the shot. :-)
