Small World

Took a few days to coach to Canberra and spend some time with some good friends. I got a phone call off a mate in Adelaide asking about the IA show and I was telling him about my night and where we stayed etc.. and the guy in front of me in the coach overheard me say 50 Lions.

Looking at this guy you’d never think he was into hardcore. I like being surprised like that. Turns out he had caught a coach up to Sydney for the IA show, which I had driven from Melbourne for.

Also turned out, this guy was the IA tour manager in Japan last time they toured there. Crazy hey? We chatted about bands and tours and then he slept and I watched a movie on my ipod and probably dropped off afterwards too.

Stayed at the Vegan House in Canberra – many good times, got woken up by two kittens and a puppy every morning which was cute – but sometimes too early. Like 4am too early.

Caught a coach back up to Sydney, went to the beach – buried a very tall friend, caught some waves, got badly burnt just in time to fly to Melbourne.



After a terrible red eye flight to Melbourne where the person next to me was throwing up for literally three hours, I arrived still jetlagged from Qatar and literally passed out on Sam mid speach sometime later that day.
Rough Times.

Melbourne always equals trips to the following joints for me.
92 house
La Panella
East Brunswick Club
Lord of the Fries.


A bunch of us decided to make the ten hour drive to Sydney for the IA show. Our fifth person bailed last minute so we decide our friend Andrew was going to come with. The plan was to tell him we were taking him out for ice cream and when he realised 2 hours later that we were on the highway to Sydney, we would tell him we’re actually going there instead.

The poor thing had to cancel his movie date for the evening.
So five of us ventured out in a car packed with soda, glowsticks, brownies, la panella, a carton of Coopers and some of Natalie’s baked treats.

It was an epic car ride.

The show was definitely worth the travel.

“For those of you who had a sad about the fact that this wasn’t internal affairs playing, it’s just as well that you missed it”.
We appreciated every minute of it, and every single bit of sweat that was exuded. On a side note, Iron Mind were mind blowing.

A hectic night out and way to much redbull saw three of us attempt to rest our eyes at Kelly’s place on his wooden floor without blankets, pillows and for me – without sleepwear; all whilst listening to the farts and stomach sounds of some very ill men in the same room. We’re all very good friends now. ha.

In Attendance.

Hopefully see you there 🙂

Also trip to Canberra is back on… Be there Sun – Tue.

Travel Bug.

So I’m going to Sydney this weekend for IA – well the singer anyways.. and to catch up with some people.
Maybe head to Brisbane before that – not sure yet.
Going to the good ol Canberra for two days, before heading to Melbourne for a week.

God I love Melbourne.
