Thursday Afternoon Weekend Event's Update, September 3rd, 2009

Good Afternoon, Folks!

Another week has gone and we count down closer to the commencement of the real Events Season. In saying that I notice that the second round of SLEAZE BALL tickets are selling out fast, which means that only final release will be available soon. For those who like thgeir sports hot, I recommend grabbing your ticket/s as soon as you can.

Welcome to Spring although the last 2 weeks have been really too warm, then again... warmer weather gives rise to a different set of fashions, so all is NOT bad after all. - Especially if you have an air-conditioner.

I mentioned last weekend that the Latin American Film Festival is upon us, and it's showing some excellent films indeed. I recommend that you (at the very least) head on over to the MU-MESON ARCHIVES sometime this weekend (and nexct weekend) where the Festival will be having a couple of special screenings specifically tailored for the Mu-Meson set. As far as Film Festivals are concerned, THE SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL has broken out on it's own, this year, and is screening at UTS Ultimo all this weekend. For some of the best professional animated shorts, and secret looks into the world of gaming animation, you can't really go past this small Festival.

I should mention that for those who like some of the darker pursuits of life, reknowned international performance-artist, SATOMI, hits Sydney this weekend to conduct a very intimate performance soiree at BAR MANACLE in Petersham this Friday. Having seen her perform myself, I can only recommend this for those who truly like the restrictive arts.

Of course, if your entertainment leanings are more toward Burlesque, Flappers and Gangsters, perhaps the annual GANGSTER'S BALL will be more to your liking, this year moving from the Gaelic to THE METRO THEATRE in George Street. With a plethora of acts and a strictly enforced 1920s-1940s/Vintage/Burlesque Dress-code, it should keep jeans and T-Shirts right outside and therefore be one of the events of the season. Of course if you like a more intimate event, perhaps THE OCTOPUSES GARDEN PARTY will work for you (and it's a fund-raiser as well).

There are of course the usual weekend events on and the details for those are below.

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).
