Something interesting to do Thursday night?

Alf 6 January 2011 12

I just told someone we would do something different on Thursday night and despite an extensive googling there really seems to be nothing happening on the evening of 6 January in Canberra.

Can anyone offer suggestions? With a musical twist if possible.

Just looking at the paper there is a fundraiser at Transit Bar tonight for 2 local MCs MoneyKats. They are raising money to fund a new album to be recorded in the States. Seems to be hip hop. Entry is $5 before 10pm and $10 after that. I searched for MC Omar Musa on YouTube and found this MC Omar Musa also won the Poetry Slam competition.

It actually sounds like a fun night.

Pot Belly was closed on Monday night so you might want to check.

Yep, nothing’s on. Nothing will be open, the lake and other open spaces will be closed. Walking into a park will be an offence. There’s no chance of the cinemas being open, as they have been told not to entertain anyone. The various bars and pubs around have been warned to look out for people who want to be entertained and not to entertain them. Plays at the various theatres around have also been called off. Most of the associations and clubs who normally keep people entertained have decided it’s too much trouble. There’ll be a total barbecue ban, and anyone caught enjoying themselves talking to friends over a drink on a balcony, patio, pergola or manicured lawn will be summonsed for procuring fun. Attempting to ride a bicycle around the lake to enjoy the balmy evening air will result in derision from the fun police and possible confiscation of handlebars.

However I believe Summernats is hosting a concert by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra with a guest appearance by Dame Tiri Te Kanawa (I might be wrong on this, check program guides).

You could go out to Braddon on Thursday night and watch all the Summernat cars. Lol.
