Event: Majura Festival – This weekend

By lukeo at 6:56 pm on Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Details are a bit sketchy on this one, but the Majura Festival kicks into gear this Friday 21st September 2007 in Woolley Street Dickson.  For all you drivers out there, you better find alternate routes because the road is closed from 3pm Friday to 8pm Saturday Night.

Drumassult will be playing Friday night at 10pm after battle of the bands.

I hope to get a few more details before Friday, otherwise see you there at 10pm.

Vote for wintery greatness

By kaydo at 5:37 pm on Monday, June 18, 2007

The cool kids at the National Capital Authority are letting you vote for movies you’d like played as a part of the Winter in the Capital fandango.

The exciting thing is that they’ve chosen some truly timeless classics that I must insist you all vote for:

  • The Karate Kid
  • The Lost Boys
  • The Goonies
  • I’ve seen each of these movies in the last 6 months, and I must say that they really do hold up to the test of time. I am not delusional. Please vote.

i’ve got nothing witty to say about… golf

By kaydo at 11:51 pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Ridiculously cold winter nights are the best time for outdoor activities. We’re bringing back the tradition of the golf driving range. It’s on:

What: Hitting golf balls
Where: Narrabundah Golf Driving Range
When: 7pm Wednesday 13/06
Why: Canberra doesn’t have a baseball batting cage. I’ve checked. Also, there’s heaters.

In the case of PANTS, tradition = when we think of it. When should we do this again?

Little Birdy @ the venue THIS WEEK

By kaydo at 9:00 pm on Monday, June 4, 2007

11th hour update, but constantly cool. Little Birdy are playing at the venue in Erindale on Wednesday June 6th. If you missed them at the ANU recently, or if you’ve seen them in alarming rotation on late night tv from their ‘live at the chapel’ appearance, you’ll want to get down to the southside. The venue website also allows you to purchase tickets online, so get there.

The upcoming list of gigs is also on the venue site, so check it out for some more highlights. (nope, I don’t feel the need to link to them a third time in one post)
