I bump into Tara at Brother Baba Budan this morning and she elaborates on her text from last night: Majorca will be playing a house show in Brisbane, with the Diamond Sea and I Heart Hiroshima (look at me, providing links today!), around the time that Live and Let DIY is on. Now, the shitty thing here is that the weekend that all this glorious stuff is happening is also the weekend immediately following my first week back at work. So right now I'm asking for recommendations: do I risk the wrath of my boss (who already hates me due to the copious amounts of anarcho-syndicalist propaganda that spew forth from my office) and take a couple of sick days, or do I just wait until IHH wanders back down the east coast for a Melbourne show?
Further to the other day's post about Melbourne's booming population, a Business Council of Australia study released yesterday shows that it is actually increasing by one thousand people a week. That's a fucking lot of people. My hope is that they're all vegan - or at least vegetarian - and will cause an explosion in Brendan-friendly eateries.
