Is the hockey a licensed event (ie can I drink beer in a big cup)? Serious question – couldn’t see anything on the Kuniggits website.

You sure can mate, upstairs in the bar overlooking the ice.

Simone Penkethman at the bootlegs at the Phoenix on Monday night will actually be Simone and the Soothsayers together on stage for the first time since their Circus Funhouse show for Fronge 08 – they promise to play selected old crap and maybe even something new!

A tenner is not really that hard on the pocket 😉

UG Beats at Transit tomorrow night has some sort of ‘rock’ theme, as opposed to the usual ‘repetitive beats’ theme.

Also Downsyde are at the same venue tonight. You’ll have to pay to get in (a tenner I believe), which is unusual, but there you go.

Skipping Girl Vinegar + Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens (duo) + Jonno Zilber tonight (thurs) at The Front in Lyneham. You might recognise Skipping Girl Vinegar’s tunes from JJJ or commercial radio, it’s a cosy night of alt-acoustic pop. doors at 7:30pm, $18 I think.

Doomsday Festival is $15 not $25 due to a reduction in the original amount of bands that were going to play .

Saw the Melbourne show last weekend and Looking Glass were amazing .
