As it stands right now, tomorrow's plan is:

Jen and cin are catching the train from Geelong that begins from South Geelong at 2:29pm. It rocks through Werribee at 3:02pm. It reaches Spencer Street Station at 3:33pm, where I will be waiting, photographing trains and such. We'll make our way up to Flagstaff Gardens and TranceEnding will meet us there a bit later, once she finishes work.

I'm bringing muffins and, I think, wine glasses. Hopefully somebody else is handling booze and other food and a picnic blanket or something. I'll also have some U2 memorabilia on me.

How does this all sound so far? What do we need to add?

Also, just a reminder to everyone that sharing mobile phone numbers would be a good idea - amakaxver[at]gmail.com for me.

Hope y'all have a great time, and sorry I couldn't be there!

Also, I go and watch a Police concert in the city for ONE night and you people make the thread go from four pages to eleven...

I just want to say that if I did not live in Chicago, Illinois, US, I'd show up at a Melbourne gathering.

If you feel like it, check out his myspace page

http://www.myspace.com/jeffmartinsolo

Perhaps you can listen to some samples of his music there? Jeff was the singer/guitarist for the Canadian band the Tea Party, but the band split about 3 or so years ago now, so he's been working on a solo career since then. I've seen a bunch of his shows on the last couple Australian tours and they are really wonderful It's kind of a mix of his new acoustic stuff and the heavier sounds of Tea Party songs. He's a pretty amazing guitarist/musician and vocalist ... often including alot of Middle Eastern instruments and sounds.

I think he's pretty well worth checking out!

So if you lived in Champagne-Urbana, Illionois you'd go to the Mebourne gathering? You know what, sir? I call you on that. I call thee "Liar". Your claims are false and full of the proverbial shit.

If my boss would only fire me, I'd make a bee-line for Australia. Damnit.

But would we let you? I mean, you're in America. Can you pronounce "Melbourne" properly?
