Summer Plans: Livin' in a Land Down Under
This summer, I'm going to be living in Australia for two straight months. I'm leaving on May 27th and getting back just in time for the Pitchfork Fest on July 27. Don't panic though, I will continue blogging during the trip (but if you have a package of music to send me do it quick). What am I going to be doing down there you ask? Well, I'll probably be eating alot of Vegemite Sandwiches but also, my Uncle lives in Perth, Australia and I'll be doing a Communications Internship with him (I'm also tagging along with him for a couple of weeks on a trip to Kenya/Uganda).
Music-wise Australia is definitley growing. Architecture in Helsinki, Wolfmother, The Grates, Youth Group, and The Vines are all Australian bands that have done well for themselves recently. Anyone know of any other Australian bands I should check out before heading down there? Anyone live in Perth and know of any good places to see shows? Do the toilets really flush in reverse down there? All questions that should be pondered...
