Work frenzy in the venue room again this weekend, all-too-familiar theme here. Then nights working the Spiegeltent bar. Long shifts. Saturday night was freekin’ mayhem. Graveyard Train played a raucous show to a packed house as part of the opening to Leaps & Bounds Festival. It was a huge night, punters in fine drinkin’ mood standing 6 across and 4 deep waiting for another drink at the bar. I hardly looked up – a frantic drink-pouring robot for 4 hours. Perfect Storm, the drink of choice – a dark cocktail of Sailor Jerry’s rum, ginger beer & bitters – left everything sticky behind the bar by the night’s end. Anyway, what I heard of the band (& the little I saw) I liked.

Doggies got up again this weekend, narrowly beating a much improved Carlton. Vale Adelaide FC coach Phil Walsh too. His murder late last week continues to shock and bewilder the football community.

Fires out.
