- Guns N' Roses, Metallica & Faith No More Tribute Bands @ Corner Hotel Richmond
THEY SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN (Riot Festival Tribute) GUESTS: CUCKOO FOR CACA, KILL 'EM ALL + GnR THEY SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN (Riot Festival Tribute) THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+ During the summer of 1992 Lars Ulrich and Slash held a press conference announcing the “They Said It Would Never Happen” Tour (Later referred to as the Riot Festival). This co-headlined tour featured the two biggest bands in the world at the time, Guns’n’Roses and Metallica, during their Use Your Illusions and Wherever We May Roam tours respectively. This now infamous 26 date North America and Canada tour also featured the up and coming band Faith No More as the opening act and was the epicentre of the 1992 Montreal Riot where Guns’n’Roses lead singer Axl Rose left the venue not returning after repeatedly throughout the tour being up to 2 hours late to take the stage infuriating fans and the other bands. At one show it also saw James Hetfield (Metallica singer / guitarist) receiving 3rd degree burns on stage after a pyrotechnic incident as well as being the point in time where both Faith No More (who left the tour early) and Metallica swore off ever playing with Guns’n’Roses again ‘if the tour ever ended’ What we are presenting is a recreation of this festival event with 3 of Melbourne’s premiere tribute acts: • Cuckoo For Caca – The Australian Faith No More Show • Kill ‘em All – The Australian Metallica Show • GN’R – The Australian Guns’n’Roses Tribute Show Ticket's are $33.61 which includes booking fee.

- Sunday Lunch at Spottiswoode Hotel, Spotswood.
I will book the table under the name of 'Ken/meetup' Spottiswoode Hotel have an amazing special of a $10 roast on Sundays. Even better is the fact that their roast is delicious. Due to this deal plus the fact that we get great service and its a nice hotel, we have been going here most Sundays for the last year. We think that the atmosphere there is good for meetup events and hope to enjoy it more in the company of other meetup people. The hotel is easy to get to by public transport being diagonally opposite the Spotswood Train Station which is on the Werribee and Williamstown lines. There is always plenty of parking in their car park on the opposite side of Hudsons Rd. Their standard menu is available at http://spottiswoode.com.au/Main-Menu.php but the specials are better value. The size of their servings for all meals other than the $10 roast is very generous. If you have one of their great desserts, you are best to share it. Please note that we have placed this event into several meetup groups so the numbers that have RSVPed here are not indicative of the number of people coming.

- Brunswick Scottish Party and Dance - BYO drinks etc
A ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is a night of traditional Scottish dancing. Join with the Brunswick Scottish Society and learn how to do fun dances, and have some BYO drinks. Don't worry if you don't know how to dance -- the lovely people will teach you. This is the best $5 night you'll ever have! This is like a big party in a hall with BYO drinks, BYO glass/cup, BYO food and lots of Scottish Dancing. Most of the dances are like square dances with everyone being told or shown what to do. A few of the dances are similar to those done at ballroom places such as the Pride of Erin Waltz, Parma Waltz, Charmain Foxtrot or Evening 3 Step. Don't worry if you don't know any, they teach you. It finishes early, about 11pm, which is good as it's cheap drinks (BYO) you are probably best to use Public Transport. The 96 Tram gets you back to the CBD quite quickly. Some of us pop around the corner after and go to the Lomond Hotel on Nicholson St. The Lomond Hotel normally has a good band and dancing with free entry. Note: The number 96 tram just outside the hotel is one of the trams that is now running all night. FAQ: COST: $5 tickets at the door TIME: 7:45pm for an 8pm start LOCATION: Fleming Park Hall, 96 Victoria St., Brunswick East (the building just east of the Brunswick Bowls Club - 96 tram, stop #26. Note: If you end up at the tram terminus you have gone one stop too far. FOOD: bring food for the shared dinner - such as pasta, a salad, or cupcakes. DRINKS: bring your own + bring glasses/cups WEAR: plaid/tartan if you have it. It's not required, it's just way more fun! AFTER: drinks at the Lomond Hotel on Nicholson Note: This is being placed on a number of meetup groups and similar. We feel that having around 50 people dancing is quite good for this hall but recently had months with it going towards double this. Consequently we're now setting maximum RSVP numbers with the maximum being shared between groups. We monitor the total RSVPs over all groups and when we get enough people we cut off each group's maximum so that further RSVPs go onto wait lists.
