Dualplover End of Financial Year Party

Don't know how, but Lucas Abela managed to get Sydney's music scene to go to Home Nightclub. That was an odd experience.

I got there about 9pm, and now that the line up was basically nothing like it was originally planned, I don't know who the first couple of bands I saw were, I'm assuming I missed Godswounds, but the first I recognised were Crab Smasher, one of those bands that are awesome and on every line up, but I keep managing to miss. Was a good way to start the night, there's a short conversation I have towards the start of it, sorry about that, also I can't remember how much of the first song I missed, my gear has been fucking up recently, and I know exactly how to fix it, I just don't have the money.

Drunk Elk played next I think, I've completely forgotten the order, and were a bit of a downer and didn't quite suite the night, but were still great. There's about 5 minutes I cut out in the middle of them just tuning their instruments.

10 minutes of Rice Corpse next, don't know why so short, guess Lucas had better shit to do that night. Still mad regrets not taping them at Auralted States, probably the best I've seen them played, also the longest.

Then in true Dualplover style it turned into some fucking weird rave-core rave for about an hour and a half and everyone acted like a bunch of fucking weirdos, after counting down to the new financial year. It was awesome.

I had been quite excited to see Horse MacGyver, (Probably better known as ///▲▲▲\\\, fucken #\\/\\/|†©|•| |•|▲ยต§, too far? Too far.) so I was a bit shitty that he played a short set, and some cunt spent the entire set throwing shit at him, but when he got into the flow of things it was really fucking good, but by all accounts his set at Serial Space the night before was just mind blowing. Because I decided to consider that I was seeing him tonight and skip out on that show to go to my usual Tuesday Night Trivia at the Clare. I'm dumb.

I saw Teen Ax once before when they were Liz Hurly, and was really impressed, they were still really good but it occurred to me that night that the drummer is just fucking appalling, even playing shit as simple as this and everything about it is so weak. Here, have the potential award.

Whores rule. Whores fucking rules.
