In the last week or so, it has come to my attention that the following bands will be gracing our shores this summer:
The Dead Weather
Them Crooked Vultures
There is also major festival sidehows by Calvin Harris, AFI, MCR, Placebo, etc etc. I'm still holding out for a Muse sideshow too. Possibly also The Killers.
I don't know what to do. At roughly $80 a pop, I cannot possibly go to all of them. It's an utterly depressing thought considering the gig drought 2009 turned out to be. Why must I be denied these brief moments of happiness? Sigh.
Clearly I need to turn to a life of crime. Added incentive comes in the form of the Sydney Festival which this year is also hosting a great number of plays including Hamlet. Meanwhile te Sydney Theatre Company are putting on a production of Chekov's Uncle Vanya starring Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Richard Roxburgh which I obviously have to attend. I mean come on.
I still haven't managed to get rid of this extra Soundwave ticket. Grumps. Everyone says they don't like going to festivals. Uh and I do? Make no mistake, I loathe it with every fibre of my being, but the line-up people! The line-up. I suppose if you're not into it, shelling out a stupid amount to do something you don't like is pretty insane. I can't hold it against anyone. Still doesn't change the fact that I have a spare ticket to offload though.
I'm really going to make an effort to enjoy summer in the city this time around.
But anyway, I suppose that is neither here nor there. Back to NaNoWriMo.
