Monday Afternoon Weekly Events Update, February 9, 2009

Good Afternoon, Folks!

Last weekend Australia lost a town - in fact we lost a few towns, which were razed off the surface of the planet in an event worse than the Ash Wedneday fires. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families affected, and our admiration goes out to the Fire-fighters and volunteers who have done (and continue to do) an incredible job in fighting the fires. With 108+ dead and 750 homes destroyed in this tragedy, I think I will recommend something for everyone to do this week. Pick an event you would like to go to, then stay at home instead. Then, donate the money you would have spent that night to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund. Either follow that link through the Red Cross site, or drop into any National Australia Bank branch and ask to donate it.

Remember, pick an event and don't attend, donating the money instead (don't worry, there'll be more events on later in the week/end).

OK, I think that's my lot. A short intro this week. So, let's just get on with the process of putting this list out :)


To visually follow Events In Sydney I direct you to our Google Calendar and, there is a Calendar function in our Events_In_Sydney Yahoogroup, so those of you who get the bi-weekly emails, can log in and have a look at that, as all events are displayed there as well (they're all the same events - just in differing formats).

Just a reminder that Events In Sydney has a Facebook Group which you can find by following this link. This list is being mirrored on Google Groups and we have a MySpace as well. So, if you have a Faceboobk, Google or MySpace Account - keep an eye out for us there.

That seems to be everything I have to rabbit on about, for the moment, so let's get on with the listing, shall we?.... This coming week there's more than a bit of stuff coming up - so browse through and have a look. For those bands you might be interested in, have a look at Faster Louder for that Independent What's On Listing (which we also supply details to).
