Week 44

Week 44
Day 302 – 308
22 December 2016 – 28 December 2016
Zo Damage 365 Day Project

Week 44 was pretty crazy and to say that finding a gig on Christmas Day was challenging is an understatement. After discovering that two venues that advertised live bands for the day had cancelled the shows it was The Curtin and an amazing SMS received on the tram ride home inviting me to a Christmas Day house party that saved the day! Stoked to finally have a house party in the project too! Week 44 of my 365 Day Project features Dusty Ravens at The Retreat, Even for the Even Christmas Party at The Corner, Jurassic Nark at The Tote, soul jams at The Curtin, an epic house party in Northcote Toga Rock, Fuck The Fitzroy Doom Scene at Ding Dong Lounge, Her Majesty's Hangover at The Old Bar and Draught Dodgers for the Cherry Awards at Cherry Bar. It is now 9.30pm on New Year's Eve … time to head to a gig! All the very best for 2017 folks and thanks for your rad support over this year. You seriously rule.
