DIY Wotz on guide for the weekend of 19 September

By johnboy - 20 September 2008 37

[First filed: September 18, 2008 @ 08:56]

Apologies for the lack of a photograph this week. I did take one but appear to have mislaid it. Or perhaps the dog et it?

Moving right along Hive-Minders what knowledge can you bring to the table about events worth going out to spend our hard earned discretionary dollars on?

Post away in the comments.

Et Voila! The image appears.

What’s Your opinion?

Thumper said :

whoops, an update.

The Feldons transit gig is not on.

Instead I think we’re at the Front…

Filthy’s will still be worth attending, Thumper? Tuesday’s my limit on free nights next week.

Thoroughbred Park has the races on – 19th September. Free entry.

Thumper 2:48 pm 18 Sep 08

Thursday at the Transit will probably be the better of the two.

Aurelius 2:40 pm 18 Sep 08

That Feldons gig sounds like a good idea!
Will have to buy you a pint Thumper 🙂

Thumper 1:21 pm 18 Sep 08

And next Tuesday 23rd September at Filthy McFaddens- Musical Madness featuring The Feldons at about 8.30 or 9.00pm I think.

And I have no idea who the other bands will be 😉

Also catch the Feldons at the Transit Bar on Thursday 25 September.

Just on t’other side of the weekend: Trivia in the Trams at the Tra dies Club in Dickson on Monday night. Rego from 7pm, quiz kicks off at 7.30pm and it’s all over bar the shouting (I’ll have an Old, thanks) by about 9.15pm.

Last night of a six-week trial. I’m hoping not to get let off for time already served…

Free to enter. Cash and voucher prizes, games, a little ritual humiliation, and probably more cryptic, groan-inducing place name quizzes.

Friday: Damian Howard and the Ploughboys/Gentle Souls. Doors 6pm, music from 8pm. The Folkus Room, Mawson. http://thefolkus.org.au/Folkus_program1.html $15/$12.
*** I’ll have a couple of tickets to give away on Disc Drive, Artsound FM (92.7/90.3 Tuggers) at about 5pm (though that does clash with the Johnboy and Marianne Show on XX) and I’ll be talking to Chris Young, Ploughboys’ manager on air and playing a couple of tracks. ***

No Merry Muse tonight because everyone who can will be at The Turning Wave festival in Gundagai (lucky %^$#@% *&^%$#@#s).

Saturday: Afternoon jazz with As Famous As The Moon and the Yass High School Stage Band. The Folkus Room, Mawson, 2pm-5pm. Link above.

Sunday: Jenny M Thomas (Vic) and Rebecca Moore (currently South Coast). The Folkus Room, Mawson. Link above. $15/$12. Doors 6pm, music from 8pm.
*** I’ll be talking to Rebecca Moore and she’ll be playing a couple of numbers live on air on the Patchwork program on Artsound (92.7/90.3 Tuggers) between 10am and midday plus I’ll have some free tix for the evening show. ***

Qwerky, if you’re out there, you should post the details of the singing workshop with Rachel Hore this weekend — you never know who might be interested. You never got back to me with a Sunday price!

For me, I’ll be trying to get to that Open Source thing on Saturday morning and then wielding the mic at the reception of a lovely young couple who are tying the knot on Saturday afternoon.

Chase the Sun and Cass Egar at Old Canberra Inn on Friday night. Two great acts, well worth seeing.

And there’s still a lot of really great photographic exhibitions happening as part of the Vivid photography festival: http://www.nla.gov.au/vivid/exhibitions.html

This Saturday is Software Freedom Day. Grab your free CD and see open source demos at the Computer Fair in the Bus Depot Markets.

Advance warning for next Saturday the 27th – Install Fest at ANU (CSIT building – Room N101). Bring your hardware and we’ll help you get it up and running.
