We made it to Straya! We'd been thinking of this moment all day - getting to my older bro's apartment in Melb city and slugging a cold beer. Andy didn't disappoint - cold Chang on arrival. Kate also ensured the M&Ms were separated already - or Kaney wouldn't go on stage that night... We met our first tour pet, Tutti Frutti - the indoor apartment cat.
So we had a bit of a mare with overweight issues with our ol mates Jetstar in CHCH earlier on today. Kaney had to ditch one of his lefty strats and Metz has had to go on a drum diet whilst over here. I hacked it up and should've got us all a 40kg weight allowance. Seedaz to know for next time. Our combined allowance was 120kg and we were clocking in @ 137. Managed to get it down to 119. All I could think of was darts - GET AWAY FROM THOSE 18s!
Maaasive day tomorrow with our first two Melbs shows back to back on the same night. We pick up our rental from the airport first thing in the morning and head out across town to pick up our backline.
We are playing an early set @ The Espy - we are on first @ 9pm so get there sharp cobs! We have jumped on some local Ska bands bill for this one. Gonna be phat to play the Espy and can't wait to kick off our Aussie mish @ such a wicked venue.
We'll then be hooking back to the centre of town and playing a late show @ Pony. It's a 1am start @ Pony, so it's gonna be pretty filthy but equally fat!
But I couldn't resist a couple o Vomit Bombs on the flight today ;)
Chur for driving us today Spay!
That's it for now - gotta get 40 winks! Gog
