It's been a month (so far) of a lot of things happening and so I have been somewhat lax in my postings... I shall try to get that together for you in the next week or so. Sometimes economic life intrudes (how dare it, I say). There is one thing that is good with real life, though, and that's that people get married - and I have to send out a HUGE congratulations to the GILLIOT (GILL & ELLIOT) for meshing more than their names this Saturday :)
So, let's look at the highlights... Tonight DANDELION WINE is having their album launch at The Excelsior which will throw steampunk into the ambient waves :) Definitely one to hear this evening. That coupled with MZ ANN THROPIK'S SOS Tour launch at Hot Damn1 na dUtopia on Saturday makes for a busy one.
The poster-child for Sydney Fetish Clubs, HELLFIRE, is having their 16th Anniversary this Friday night at The Gaff. 16 years of controlled (but just barely, at times) fetish indulgence is something to be celebrated and celebrated it shall be. With special guest performers and welcoming a new resident DJ (Sveta) into the fold, this will be a celebration to be spoken of in gasps. LOVE & HATRED gears up for an 80's night extravaganza on Saturday night, which will see The Taxi Club go all flouro and will be a night to give any Retro-80's-Gothy club (any club actually) a serious run for their money (not to mention if you're dressed in 80's 'fashion' it's only $5 at the door. of course for a different take on the evening, you may want something a little darker and harder at the opening of another ALT.SAT.FORBES night called NO VITALS.
See? Just a 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).
