Time affords a little now.

Last month in Sydney was top top top, there was so much brilliance happening, so many good bands to be seen, two weekends in particular that were spectacular. The first weekend there was an amazing show at Maggotville warehouse which doubled as Mike's farewell, it was madness. Wasted Truth
, Kitchen's Floor
, Blank Realm
and Naked On The Vague
as well as some other of my favourites played, all in one room and were all wonderful. Naked On The Vague as a 4-piece in particular blew me away, and when I went to see Blank Realm at a little art gallery the next night in got all drone-dancy and was mystical.
Last weekend was the Sydney leg of Flip Out Festival (put on by Aaarght! and Stained Circles) and was stupendous fun. ZOND
are my new fixation. Royal Headache
(friends and were on pitchfork! Too funny) were tip-top too. Pink Reason, Goodnight Loving and James Arthur's Manhunt were on the bill too, amongst other local bands, and maybe it's my bias but it really felt like the local talent was more exciting than the overseas ones.
It was my birthday on Sunday. I'm getting a dSLR and some other nice stuff. That's it. Sydney is better 'cos I know I'm getting out of it. Tip-top I am exhausted from doing uni work and not sleeping.
