Its five years this week that we’ve been living in the ‘burbs. Its seventeen months since a little boy appeared and any form of nightlife vanished. Its a long time since I’ve been to a gig!

Johnette Napolitano at the Corner hotel. Dinner at Sylvio’s — a large Sylvio’s special, garlic bread and a carafe of wine — quick, hot, tasty. Then back down to Swan street to the Corner Hotel. A good night. I thought it better than last time Jo and I went to see her back in , Jo thought that the last time was the better of the two. Singing Midnight Oil’s Beds are Burning as the final song of the set — to me oddly reminiscent of Davros singing at one point. Scary voice lady. Other highlights were Ghost Riders in the Sky, and an acoustic/audience participation rendition of Tomorrow Wendy as her encore.
