How’s everything going on your end? I’m surprised I can even hold a pen properly, I’ve got the worst case of the shakes, it’s been a massive week but it’s almost over and we’ll probably be home Saturday morning.
The wedding on Sunday was unreal, everyone had a great night and everything seemed to go off according to plan. The hotel we had was amazing it was massive and overlooked this really posh golf course we felt very upper class/out of place. Love any excuse to get in a suit and sleaze it up.
We made our way up to Brissy for BIGSOUND Monday Morning, we filmed some stuff when we got here, it should turn up online sooner or later, it’s pretty much just me being a dickhead, you’ll be so proud haha. Then we went out for dinner with all the label guys and gals and we’ve pretty much been drunk ever since.
Benny and I went and saw some of the BIGSOUND speakers on Tuesday, there was some pretty interesting stuff. Tom was on a panel discussing ‘the future of heavy rock music’ it was a really good listen, plus we got to take the piss out of him on the live twitter feed that was streaming behind him.
We had our two shows last night and I think they went really well, we had a lot of fun with them, you just never really know with industry shows it always just feels like a bunch of suits with their arms crossed, but we got a good reaction. The first show was at Tempo (that’s the place with the $15 super jugs I was telling you about), we were sharing the stage with the Closure guys so as you can imagine we were in our prime, and there were plenty of super jugs.
We killed a couple of hours and then made our way over to Electric Playground for the Permanent Records launch party (with an entourage of girls and winos we amassed at tempo) haha.
This show was a lot more fun, it was 1am so everyone was nice and loose, it felt a lot more like a Strangers gig. I’ve enclosed one of the ‘free drink cards’ that Leigh handed out to everyone at the party. Surprise! it’s me in my underwear, so proud.
So I’ve just woken up, and the rest of the night is a bit of a blur, Timmy and I ended up back at some chicks place drinking straight vodka that someone had back washed red bull into, a fucked colour but it went down all the same, but came up even quicker. Their room mate wasn’t too impressed haha, it was probably his vodka. Was definitely a walk of shame this morning. I looked like a cheap whore walking down the street with my boots in hand, and Timmy was a piece of shit.
Benny B and I are going to do some interviews this arvo and then the after party. Wish us luck! We’ll be leaving tomorrow as soon as we’re sober enough to drive. All the guys say g’day and they’ll see you soon.
xoxo love you.
P.S. Can you transfer over $20 or so for the trip home please. Xoxo
