Thursday Afternoon Weekend Event's Update, August 27th, 2009

Good Afternoon, Folks!

Another week and another set of things to do - which is kind of nice seeing as Spring has decided to come along early this year. last 2 weeks have been really too worm, but then again... warmer weather gives rise to a different set of fashions, so all is NOT bad at all. - Especially if you have an air-conditioner.

Still... there are things on this weekend and I am looking forward to a few of them. Tonight, for example, the AUSTRALIAN CENTRE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY is launching their next exhibition and I am looking forward to heading on up there to see the displayed goods on show.

FIlm festival season is upon us - and just like the Canadian Film Festival, it's nice to see such a great limeup at THE RUSSIAN RESSURECTION FILM FESTIVAL this week, the SOUTH AMERICAN LATIN FILM FESTIVAL coming up in 2 weeks time. Speaking of film festivals, the SYDNEY UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL is ramping up to be very cool in a little over a week, and, for the first time, the SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL is forging out on it's own with tickets available now, apeaking of tickets available now... SOUNDWAVE 1st release tickets are on sale now... well WERE on sale now... They've mostly gone - payday for me is Saturday, but I am still tossing up whether it is worth my time and money to go all the way out to Eastern Creek and have an event screw up as badly as the last one. Anyone have any suggestions? or should we wait for the sideshows... which will sell out in 11 seconds as well ;).

Still, if you're into her, P!NK is playing her last two shows in Sydney this weekend, although some might want to go and see OUR LAST ENEMY and KINDRED at CLUB BLINK, and don't forget that this weekend also sees the very welcome return of BERSERK, which tips it's stovepipe hat to the Steampunk set. I should also add that this is also the opening weekend of THE COBWEB CLUB as well, so there may be a little moving between venues from BERSERK to THE TAXI CLUB. Still, we'll see.

OK, I think that's my lot. A short-ish 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 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).
