Thursday Afternoon Weekend Events Update, February 12, 2009

Good Afternoon, Folks!

Just a quick update before the weekend hits us.

THE RUBY REVUE returns in time for Valentine's Day, so grab your tickets as soon as you can. Also, the Official Launch for the 2009 SYDNEY GAY & LESBIAN MARDI GRAS is at midday on this Sunday at Victoria Park (next to Sydney University). I hope to see you all there (or at DIE MASCHINE the night before) :)

Money raised for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal has topped $40 Million, and still rising. Various support agencies can still use your help, though. All those things that you no longer wear, or use, can be put to use by those who have nothing. Please give generously, and don't forget to donate blood as well.

As far as donating cash is concerned, remember to ONLY donate through the official channels and not to bogus collectors, or through bogus emails. Only donate online if you know that theplace you are donating to is genuine, and NEVER reply to unsolicited emails.

If you're wondering on how to donate, here's an idea I floated earlier in the week... Pick an event you might not go to normally. 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).

As you know, we're deep into the Movie Awards Season, now, and SYDNEY SCREENING is still organising attendances to Pre-Awards Oscar Nominated Film Screenings at the moment. Keep an eye out for the continuing schedule (they're announcing them on LiveJournal, and Facebook). That way you get to see the films and have an idea if the Academy is on the ball or not at the end of this month.

See? Just a very short intro this weekend. 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 our 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).

This list is being mirrored on Google Groups, Facebook and MySpace as well. So, if you have a Google, Facebook or MySpace Account - keep an eye out for us there.

This coming weekend 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, remember to have a look at Faster Louder for that Independent What's On Listing (which we also supply details to).
