Sydney Road Brunswick
"Suburb of Melbourne"
I don't know a lot about Brunswick, having only been there a few times, but I know that Sydney Road is quite a well known shopping street (and exceedingly long, at that).
It seems to have a bit of everything - trendy pubs and cafes, shops, factory outlets, churches, furnishing and wedding dress shops, to pawn and antique & junk shops,
It's not far from the centre of Melbourne.
Another historic building in Sydney Road.
Azio in concert at the Noise Bar with friends...
For the occasion of Azio's first melbourne original show gig since my husband joined them in April 2005, we travelled to Melbourne - I travelled separately on the train to meet up with french friends and website contacts for dinner near the gig pub site, while the band came down on a bus along with a load of their supporters.
After our dinner of 34 people, there were just a few of us left to go to the concert:
My swiss French friend Fred and his Japanese girlfriend, Frenchies Nolwenn and Guillaume, Mike, Simon and from Martinique-Cameroon, Cyril.
A rather multicultural gathering!
Cyril, Nolwenn & Mike
Tak and Fred
Guillaume finds a new 'friend' in the audience...no idea who he was, and we hadn't even spoken with him briefly (he was just THERE) and kept wanting to be in our photos or dance with us...very friendly and not too drunk or obnoxious at all ;-)
There he goes again, with Nolwenn this time!
there he is again, shaking hands with Guillaume after having succeeded in encouraging the latter out onto the floor to dance.
Fred & Tak again
Kitto Concert at Cornish Arms Hotel
"Sydney Road Brunswick"
After I met Martin NL from Vt for the first time at dinner in Carlton, Paul and I took him along with us to a concert of Kitto in Brunswick (I'd never heard her music before, but a French friend said she was great).
Apart from having the deepest female vocal voice I've heard in my life (which was a shock), I did really like several of her higher songs, including one called "Catalina" which is just new out.
