Latin American Food Festival

Just got back from this. Couldn’t believe the range or the prices – $3.50 for a huge tray full of pastel de choclo! I had sopaipillas, empanadas, vigoron, the pastel, Mayan hot chocolate and a slice of quezadilla. No room left for tamales 🙁

When functioning properly, the human psycadian rhythm responds to the psychedelic call of local wildlife and blooms at the morning light of a new day. This response causes an irresistible urge in humanoids to dance as one tribe, magnifying the effect and creating an overwhelming sense of joy.

Join us at Rose Cottage to experience this phenomenon for yourself! Spread over two stages, expect a night of smooth progressive, warped psytrance, twisted minimal and chilled live tunes, amazing performance and dance your way into the new day!

Tickets $15 (+bf) pre-sale, $25 on the door.

Former Iron Maiden vocalist Paul DiAnno is on at the Basement on Monday night.

$50 to watch some washed up dude play cover songs of the band he was booted from.

It’s a bit sad really.

Can you cover songs you have a writing credit for? I’m not sure.

As you can see, Hancock Basement are on tonight in Transit.

The Baterz tribute tomorrow night at the Folkus room is threatening to be huge with half the inner north googling for travellers tips on survival south of the lake and consulting their iphones for directions to those parts unknown. (Italian Club in Forrest, don’t be late).

Wedded Bliss CD launch on Saturday at the polish club in Turner will let us compare the merits of the duelling folk venues.

Also the science festival is on with some stuff that may be of interest:
