Splendour, Shotgun Polly and the Big Uke Jam

Guess who has two thumbs and too much awesome going on?


I'm going to Splendour! Woohoo! You'd think that as an event manager I'd have paid to attend a music festival before turning 23, but there you go! In return for the fortunate timing of birthdays in July and smashing results at uni so far this semester, my family have shouted me admission to the most kick-arse line up I've ever seen at my favourite venue.

I believe that my band, Shotgun Polly, has its first gig in a month or so. Despite discussing here, I actually do want to keep it on the down-low in fear of royally cocking up on stage in front of my peers. I probably won't tell you when it is, even if it's before I return to Facebook and Twitter for more sly promoting, unless I don't fear your opinion should I screw up. It's a gig for fun in my books anyway, and is one's first gig since the good ol' college talent show days at International House, so I'm not too worried (#denial?).

The first Brisbane Ukulele Festival is still in the works, yet the major, four-day event will now take place next year. Exciting stuff will still be happening this year in September, so keep your eyes peeled around West End and South Bank for that, and get in contact if you'd like to showcase, sponsor or be involved in other ways.

Also, I'm colouring my hair blue again (for real!) in a week or so once the dye is delivered. Have missed it so much since 2008.

That's all! I had better get back to this psych essay now and stop using my website as LiveJournal circa 2006. Cheerio.
