For those about to rock (Mr PeteNel) we salute you.
January is a rockin’ month for sure. The first month of a kick arse rock’n’roll year which so far has hosted the very rockin’ Reverend Al Green blew Sydney’s minds (not that I saw him, I’m just using my imagination), and the legendary post punk Sydney rockin’ music scene is getting it’s very own legends tour on Sunday at the Sando (Sandringham for proper Engrish speakers).
One of Sydney’s legendary legends of post punk guitar, and a good friend of mine, Mr PeteNel will be on stage headlining with the legendary post -punk band Wild West. If you like legends and want to see what they look like then get to the Sando in Newtown on Sunday from the family friendly time of 5pm. I’ll be there, and somehow I don’t think I’ll be the only one rockin’ the double-denim post-punk look.
And there’s a conference too. With pictures! Check it out if you dare. It’s a really important event. How do I know? It’s part of the Festival of Sydney… Oh and that other legend that is NOT Mr PeteNel is in town for it, John Cale.
Off to work in a moment, so I’d better dash. Here’s my ‘going back to work and loving it’ outfit…
Top: VG denim shirt, with press studs! Geez makes my arms look Hulk like
Bottom: I struggled this morning to find jeans that would look okay with the shirt AND more importantly, hide my muffin when I’m sitting at my desk
Accessory: The absolute latest, newest, freshest denim bag I own. Brought all the way back from Tokyo by the most excellent and stylish Fatty Boombsticks NOT in Tokyo. It’s denim AND bamboo with beautiful silk flowery inserts on the inside. Shoulda photographed it. Didn’t
