WEEKLY PREVIEW: 4-10 April

GIG OF THE WEEK:
FRIDAY: Soundbreak Live Japan fundraiser gig
Featuring Inanimate Objects, A Cat Named Kessey, Tainted Fist, Jevon Tawhai @ Rydges CBD Bar
7pm, $5

You’ve surely heard about this great fundraiser over the last few weeks. If you haven’t, here’s a quick cheat-sheet style round-up of what you need to know:
* A fundraiser for the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami
* 100% of the cover charge (a measly $5) goes straight to the Red Cross’ relief efforts in Japan
* Headlined by the incredibly awesome and very elusive INANIMATE OBJECTS, playing their first gig in aaaages
* At the Rydges CBD Bar, one of the bets venues in Wollongong
* It’s right next to the train station as well; so the excuse of “I have no way to get there” just won’t cut it this time
* The proximity to public transport is also very convenient if you’re planning on getting Charlie Sheened on the night
* Dress code? Formal dress-up. The perfect excuse to break your old tux out of storage and put on your best James Bond impression (not sure if martinis are available at Rydges, but I’m sure they could set you up with a nice alternative)

Cheap entry, rad bands, excellent cause, easy to get to, Charlie Sheen and James Bond – what more incentive do you need?
