Update 07 August
Hi gals. I say gals, coz as you may have noticed there's no blokes. For crying out loud!! I'm not complaining mind you.
Anyway, the doors at the CMC open at 2000. I will be running short on time so dinner before hand is probably not an option for me and my guest. We may grab something on the way.
As for the rest of you? This how I see it.
Wld be best to meetup outside the venue at 1930. Earlier the better as we'd like to be one of the first in, so as to grab a good pozy. Look for a tall, lanky guy with shoulder length greying hair, wearing a grey shirt with orange stitching under a 3/4 length black jacket. That there will be me.
Those who wish to grab a bite before hand, here's a couple of options for you. They're all in Oakleigh, 5 mins from CMC and have been given a rating and pricing category on UrbanSpoon;
Red Mango Thai 3a Station St [masked] (Thai - 84% / $$)
Eurobites 21 Portman St [masked] (Greek - 88% / $)
Orexi Souvlaki Bar Cafe 3/18 Eaton St (Mediterranean - 90% / $)
Soban 28 Station St (Korean - 94% / $$)
Ferrari Pizza 41 Atherton Rd (Italian - 88% / $$)
Silk Road Uighur Cuisine 97 Atherton Rd (Afghan, Chinese, Turkish - 91% / $)
Well, that's about it. I'm really looking fwd to this gig and catching up with friends and hopefully making some new ones.
Til then, take care.

I haven't as yet had the pleasure of seeing this band live but am familiar with their works. Join me for a show that you'll remember.
Chk out the following links. They show some of their diversity;
Graveyard Train are a six piece collective from Melbourne Australia. The initial idea was for six men to sing in baritone about Werewolves, Vampires, Ghosts and the like over frenetic foot stomping country music. A wacky idea that worked and instantly collected fans across the globe. In a song writing sense Graveyard Train are storytellers who revel in the dark or macabre. Now, like any virus, Graveyard Train’s music evolved into something much richer, forceful and potent. Banjos, dobros as well as their untraditional hammer and chain have carried the intensity of their notorious live shows through the US, Canada, UK, Europe and of course all over Australia. The legions of the infected fans are growing. They’re instantly at home on any stage and consistently win over incredibly diverse audiences – from the neck tattooed rockabilly in Sydney to the farmer in Tamworth to the derelict punk in Belgium or the hippie in Toronto, everyone ends up singing along. Graveyard Train are not a country band; they are not a folk band; they are not punk band; they are not a vocal harmony band they are not a psychedelic band. They are all of those things and more; genuinely a band like no other that you have seen. 'It’s a creepy foreboding world that Graveyard Train have created, but one that still promotes the virtue of a stiff drink, a sturdy heart and a dancing soul.' JAYMZ CLEMENTS, BEAT MAGAZINE 21/07/10 'Watching them conjures the same kind of kick you might get from hearing ghost stories, but with added visceral grunt… masses have rightfully gone bananas for them.' STEPH HUGHS, TRIPLE J 28/07/10 'I don’t think that I’ve ever gone to a gig hoping that at some point during the evening an angry bearded man would yell ‘you’re all gonna die’ at the crowd, but when I was on my way to see Graveyard Train for a sold out gig at the Spiegeltent on Tuesday night, that was exactly what I was hoping for. And I was not disappointed.' HADASS ORMANDY – NEALE 20/03/11
Cheers and stay safe
