December was a weird month, throwing up many challenges, both in finding gigs and personally. That being said, it's great to have life back to something that resemble normality.

Week 46 of The Project delivered across the board and features an amazing array of bands with Tyrannamen at Shimmerlands for Shadow Electric at Melbourne University and Gold Class at NGV for Friday Nights at NGV. The pubs and dive bars did not disappoint with grindcore from Shitwreck at The Brunswick Hotel, solo folk artist David Grimson at Whole Lotta Love, the amazing Gregory Page at The Old Bar and Ashley Naylor and friends at Cherry Bar. Passengers on the 86 were treated to a random acoustic guitar performance, while the final night of Week 46 found me all but stumbling into Samba Night at the Queen Victoria Night Market.
