Museum Night Fever 2017
The Show Mustache Go On!
Saturday March 11, 2017 - from 7 p.m. till 1 a.m.
Mustache lovers of all countries, unite! Unconditional supporters of the chevron, the Dali, the English, the
handlebar, the Fu-Manchu or the horseshoe variety: for Museum Night Fever the Military Museum rolls out
the red carpet for the nose rug!
When nosing around at the Military Museum the visitor quickly realizes every self-respecting soldier used
to sport quite some lip foliage. A manly mustache indeed was the epitome of virility! Would you like to meet
the men behind these mouth brows? Easy, as all night long the Vrije Podium actors bring back to life the
mustachioed portraits of the Historic Gallery (1)!
Feel more like personal action? The workshop The piano unboxed by Jeugd en Muziek Brussels (2) is then
definitely cut out for you. With musical rebels John Cage or Aphex Twins in mind you can, for once, let go
on a grand piano with hammers, brushes, ribbons and screws. We of course only selected songs by razor-shy
musicians such as Freddy Mercury, Prince or Lemmy from Motörhead!
Fans of master crumb-catcher Frank Zappa will undoubtedly be in heaven. Although this iconic lower brow
left us almost a quarter of a century ago, The Show Mustache Go On! Captain Cheesebeard (3) pays a
moving tribute to this pleasantly disturbed musical jack-of-all-trades. Enjoy an hourly gig inspired by this
master of alternative rock.
