  1. Hey there, can I suggest you do a sort of upcoming gig guide for Sydney. I would love to be able to find out about underground concerts etc etc.

    • Hey anon, why are you hiding behind your screen name? SHOW YOURSELF FOOL! And in regards to the gig guide, I would like to point you over to Sydney’s best blog, Polaroids of Androids. They’ve got a gig guide sorted. Also, it would probably seem contradictory for me to post a bunch of events that I would have no hope of attending, what with the HSC and shit going on. However, highly recommend you attend Chicks Who Love Guns show at Frankie’s Pizza on August 15th. That’s gunna be a fuckin riot
