If you’re going to the Trackside Festival tomorrow, make an effort to get there by 11am.

Canberra’s very own Hoodlum Shouts have been given the homour of kicking off the festival. Awarded the spot as part of Triple J’s unearthed competition, the band will set your pants on fire with their unique brand of infectious rock.

Let the Hoodlum Shouts help you knock the top off your first beer of the day.

Get out there and support local music y’all!

No worries Jim, it would have been company for me on the journey,so I wasn’t being totally altruistic. (Oh, and I’m going up on Saturday, coming back on Sunday, was what I should have said!)

I’ll be taking my pocket camera, not the Canon, if I get any good snaps I’ll send you a link.

Includes a F18 flyover at about 3pm

From the Defence media release:

The welcome home parade will mark the conclusion of Operation CATALYST and will recognise the contribution of ADF and Defence personnel to the stabilisation and rehabilitation of Iraq.

The parade will feature Australia’s Federation Guard, the Band of the Royal Military College of Australia and the Royal Australian Navy Band, marching from Anzac Parade onto the Memorial’s Parade Ground. They will be followed by Navy, Army and Air Force contingents, Defence civilians and ex-ADF members in a march-past.

I don’t know if you’re taking the mickey or not there Jim, but I’ll take it at face value.

Every metalhead worth his/her salt should at least know of Budgie through their influence on the NWOBHM (if not through Metallica covers of Breadfan and Crash Course in Brain Surgery – back when Metallica were an actual heavy metal band).
