Canberra’s only AFL game for 2011 at Manuka oval this afternoon.

Swans v. bulldogs. One expects Julia might be there!

Fred Pilcher at Beyond Q, Curtin shops, 2-4pm Saturday 7 May

“?Fred can do things with a twelve string guitar that has to be seen. He is a great entertainer with a song book of stories that can have you on the edge of your chair. His variation on Teddy Bears Picnic is a touch risque but very very funny. ??Fred modestly describes himself as just a song and dance man . . . where as most of us would describe him as Canberra’s Song and Dance man. Great voice, great covers a true musician.”

Cassidy’s Ceili at the National Museum of Australia: Sunday at 3pm


Tonight is kind of a big night at King O’Malleys in Civic. After protracted negotiations & aborted attempts, the Identical Strangers are finally playing their first ever gig at O’Malleys!

If you have seen the Strangers & are a fan – come along & rock out. If you havent yet caught up with the Strangers – drop in for a pint & some finely crafted tunes from 10.00.

Enjoy Identical Strangers – smooth & refreshing!
