Massive night on Friday. Went out with Renata from The Vagrants to The Gasometer Hotel (cnr Smith St & Alexandra Pde Collingwood) to see Dirty Harriet & The Hangmen. And they were fantastic. Balls-to-the-wall punk rock n roll with a blistering rockabilly edge. Go see these guys if you can. High energy, wild attitude – great songs powerfully delivered. I met the lead singer after the show & ended up drinking with the band down the street at Ya Ya’s til 5am. Crazy night.

Yesterday, Australia Day, was a little slow for me. Ended up back at the Gasometer around 9 for a beer with TC. Home by midnight.

Right now, the Luna Festival is happening down the end of our street (Chinese New Year). They’ve shut down the main road (Victoria Street Abbotsford) for a huge carnival. I can hear the bands form here. Might have to head down for a look…

Fires out.
