I thought it was profound! Showing that internet friendships/acquaintances are clearly good for something, if meeting a variety of people of different ages and backgrounds affects your perspective on your situation IRL.
I've had The Cat Empire, Jackson Jackson and now True Live in the showdown. I listen to a lot of jazzy stuff, especially while working, and Melbourne has a great scene for that. Enjoyed some of the Australian hip hop as well. I occassionally stream Triple J, cause they'll have programs that are great for discovering weird music from all over the world.
Some fun live acts I saw last year were Pierce Brothers & Tom Thum.
Got any recommendations, or are you keeping them all a secret until the summer showdown?
thanks for the fr and the friendly usernote. and don't worry, you've improved a lot from where you were a while back. remember when you got those australian fucks to come onto the board? yeah, remember how you were kind of like a rookie at that time? now you know the board and have integrated yourself with it and the users nicely. there's still room for improvement (as there is for everyone, including me), but great job nonetheless.
sorry, i only just saw your other vm when i got this one. cool dude. how were they live?
we can definitely arrange something with that time zone. i can go on any time in the next several hours, though i imagine you're asleep now? I'm not sure, haha.
Oh, I hope to Christ they record this gig. Was gonna ask if you were in the front row but holy shit, you must let me know whatever he throws at you. One of my sister's friends went to see him and he tore into her too. Wish I could remember what was said.
