Nothing special... really dont understand why can't they just hold off and do a full announcement instead of this AJ Maddah styled announcement.

About the same

Because we all know that Unknown Mortal Orchestra is Ruban from the Mint Chicks' new band right? So that makes it automatically super awesome

Unknown Mortal Orchestra and J Mascis would both be much better suited to Meredith... ah well.

greggers is happy. does entering the ballot multiple times do anything? like are you more likely to get a code or nah?

What day do the actual bands start, the 29th or the 30th?

shazie

shazie said on the 12th Jul, 2011



29th, last year it was mostly locals for the majority of the day and a couple of smaller internationals. The 30th is when all the big internationals start though.

Interesting. I have a wedding on the 28th and it will take me 10 hours to drive down. I may have to look at getting an early morning flight and hire a car.

could probably give you a lift if I have room chair.

berlinchair101 said on the 12th Jul, 2011

Thanks for the offer but I'll probably have a girlfriend and sister with me so you wouldn't have room ha ha

The easy solution is to tell gregg he needs to hire a van.

When Fleet Foxes played Falls Lorne they were on the 29th- as were another couple of decent internationals. Then again, last year it was pretty average. There's also a funk & soul night on the 28th, which if nothing else helps to break up the flow of punter arrivals.

i want to see Crystal Castles in Sydney, that would be good, too much hope for the Enmore again?

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 12th Jul, 2011



If anything, I'd expect The Metro.

Aidan1234567

Aidan1234567 said on the 12th Jul, 2011

fair enough, though they did sell out the Enmore last time, so i don't see why they wouldn't play a larger venue again, as long as it's AA im happy

dochdochstimmt

dochdochstimmt said on the 12th Jul, 2011

i think i'm just about sold on it..
with battles and metronomy in the mix i think that would have me sold.
lets just hope the ballot treats everyone kindly.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 12th Jul, 2011

I fully expect any and all forum members to help me if I miss the ballot :cool:

Didn't Crystal Castles play BDO this year?

and expect to hear more out of the kooks soon, pritchard mentioned during the chat that the band has already started planning their return trip to australia.

"the plans are being pencilled in for january. obviously we would like to come it's just a long way. but we'll definitely see you in the new year... definitely."
