[gigs] Time to Hibernate?

As usual the approach of winter means the gig guide starts getting a bit sparse. Not much new to add this week, mostly just a few corrections. Why don’t people go out more in Adelaide in winter? It’s not like it’s that cold. We’re not snowed in or anything (in fact, it still doesn’t even rain much). Fortunately, even though there are not many international tours happening, there are a few interstate and plenty of good local bands to go and see. Also while the other touring companies don’t have much for us at the moment, it’s good to see that Heathen Skulls are still bringing bands over here.

    Pikelet or F!SR,F!???? – it’d be a tough one if Deep Sea Arcade weren’t supporting. Rocket in a hearbeat. Once the metro has a better bandroom, then we’ll reconsider 🙂

    and of course i meant “heartbeat”. 🙂

    Yes, with Wolf & Cub + Like Leaves playing that night as well, I reckon you’d have to have a damn good reason for not being at a gig on Friday night (like say …. being on the way to Melbourne to see Autechre – that would be an example of an acceptable reason)
