Tonight, I am off to Kings Cross to sell my body on streetcorners.
No, wait, that’s not right. I mean, the money would be nice, but I’ve still got my pride. No, tonight, I’m going to see the band with the possibly the strangest name in the world – The Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and Tra-la-la Band – I hadn’t intended to go when the gig was first announced, as I felt a bit let down by the Godspeed gig I saw, but I hated the venue, so I figure I’ll give Silver Mt Zion a go, and see if they’re any better live, in a different venue. I feel like a bit of an eejit, though, as I stupidly assumed that I’d have MP3s of their albums and Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s albums on my work machine to listen to today. I don’t. This is stupid, as they’re perfect music to work to, and yes somehow I’ve forgotten to bring them in with me to MP3, and I can’t seem to find anywhere to grab them from on-line.
I’ve also managed to miss the latest Silver Mt Zion album, so I’ll have to see if I can’t pick it up at the gig tonight.
