Well ‘John Howard’ will be doing the ACT Launch of the rivetting climate change book Climate Code Red today (Friday 30th January) at 5pm at Smiths Alternative Bookshop in the Melbourne Building. Rumour has it he’ll be apologising for his policy lunacy. Be there to hear this historic speech.

Overheard said :

Tonight (Thursday): Domus Adultus at the Hippo Bar from 8pm (from memory, possibly earlier). Stack of great acts but don’t have them to hand. Check out the CMC website or your favourite search engine for more.

A little bit more info on this one:

Subject: Domus Adultus, Alison Procter Fills a Hole

Domus Adultus, the new CMC weekly night of music that kicked off last Thursday, continues tonight and excitingly for those of you who might find it exciting, Alison Procter has spontaneously agreed to fill a gap that arose in the schedule when The Bionic Hearts bionic hearts failed them at the last moment. This will make it your last chance to see Alison Procter, solo and unwed, in Canberra or anywhere else for that matter. Thus the line-up for tonight will be:

Ted Conrick, Manouche a Trois, Briony Wills and a cameo from MC Ben Drysdale.

It runs from 8pm to midnight and costs $7/5 for CMC members.
