’twas a wet and windy night…
ah, last friday. the first real rains we’ve had in months. and of course it had to be on when we were playing at st ives youth centre, out in the suburbs!
it took us nearly an hour and a half to get there from lidcombe! bloody ridiculous!!! why so many morons needed to be on the road i will never fathom
despite the soggy surrounds it was a rather great night with ample punters and glory up on stage. gallucci went nuts on the floor (literally) and swapped us for some rad tapes, guns are for kids had a great dance up on stage, eucalypt band ripped it up and even featured some sleigh bells, and local band gone by ten put in a solid showing with one of the most gorgeous kits i’ve seen for a long time. and we played somewhere in there too. PLUS the fantastic folk at the youth centre made us delish tofu sangers *yyyuuuummmm*
it’s a great venue so if you’re interested in playing there give em a call or email or something… i’ll post it as soon as i locate it!
ps if you missed it you missed a rad night!
16th May 2021 – Trying to spread things out around Sydney, I contacted St Ives Youth Centre about putting on a show there and they were cool to give it a go. It went well but I didn’t end up doing another show there. I’m not sure if they had any more after this* but it was a good location, although nowhere near a train station, which would have made it difficult for folks from other parts of the city. Well, we gave it a go and the bands were good enough to tough it out without much or any financial reward.
*A quick search for a relevant picture turns up a video of Carpathian playing here in 2010.
