Dude, where have you been?
Where have I been? Never up around Union House! That place fucking scares me. It's so busy around lunchtime and the one time I went in there, I had a panic attack. Only time I ever have in my life. I try to avoid it. But concerts are enticing.

In any case, last semester, I was in class 10am-1pm on Tuesdays and my 12-1pm tute was really shitty, so I always just wanted to go home.

Do they publish a schedule anywhere of what bands will play? I am totally interrested in this. This semester, I don't begin class on Tuesdays until 2:15, and I'm going to try to get that tute moved to 2:15 on Thursday.

Actually, I've always been fascinated by Liechtenstein since it has such a cool name. I hope to go there someday. I'll definitely make a point of going to the Kunstmuseum. Might even make a playlist of our little setlist and play it on my iPod while I'm there.

They do - it's in the office up the stairs in the middle of Union House. You should really check it out - sometimes they're a bit of a dud, but you might just find a good band there.

So you're relaxing with cricket at about the point when it will get most boring?

Bah, I hope it's online too. I hate Union House with a passion. Though I'll probably have to go there soon for a haircut.

How long do the bands play for?

I think it's best you stay out of Auckland, lest you chase me all over the city

Don't worry, I stay as far away from that place as possible. Mind you, I do have to be at the domain on the 11th March


It's ok, you're safe.

If it's not I can probably go and write it down for you.

Bands play for around 45 mins, an hour as far as I know. And you get a free sausage! And if you're a union member, you get as many free sausages as you want, and apparently beer too!

Damn, I've got to get around to joining that union.
