Get to know YOUR group ! (Version 2.0)

  • Aug 17, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Like your indie and/ or local music ? Like to meet MORE people from this Meetup group .. but finding you're not getting to gigs ? Well, this is your chance to mingle, meet, share your music knowledge and discuss what's on your playlist at the moment. Talk about anything .... a great concert you've just seen, a song you just LOVE.. or that "desert island disc" you just can't live without ... if it's music and it matters to you then COME ALONG !

The last Meetup we had at the Union was a great success - plenty of music loving folk getting together over a few drinks on a lazy winter's afternoon and the response indicated a second gathering (Version 2.0) was in order !

Wanna know about the venue ? For a good recent review check out

www.timeout.com/melbourne/bars/venues/2533/yarra-hotel$picture0

It's part owned by Mick Thomas (of Weddings Parties Anything "fame") and is a venue well worth making the Version 2.0 meetup "base" from 2pm !

So, if you made the first one and loved it .. come again as you know how much fun it was....and if you missed it last time..don't miss out now !     

(As always, if you cannot make this event, please change your RSVP as soon as you can. Cheers !)

    It was nice to meet new people, big thanks to the organizers! Btw, if anybody is interested in prog, the Melbourne Progfest is on next weekend (https://www.facebook.com/events/549143965127121/).

    Looking forward to future metups and interesting music!

    That was good. Thanks for organising it, whoever organised it. First meetup I've been to. What happens if I press the "good to see you" button? What's it for? I'm going to find out.

    So how many of the group are still here? I'm the old fart in the 'peach' jeans and dinner jacket (& bald). Cheers, Benno

      Hi Benno, we're all sitting to the left of the bar in the big group on the chairs, I thought I saw you at the bar but then you walked out. There's still a few of us here.

    Hi All. We are in the main bar area by the window just near the stage. See you all soon!

    August 17, 2013

  • Matt G.

    Hi Nat. I'll aim to get there by 2, and I'll put an update on my phone as soon as we have a spot sorted. Will start at the pool table and go from there. I am easily spotted - I look much like my photo (only much better looking!) with glasses, a pretend beard, and will be wearing a short sleeve charcoal coloured shirt. If anyone is lost call me on[masked] 424. See you all there.

    August 17, 2013

    • Matt G.

      No worries Mark. Pity you can't join us. Hope you're back up and about in no time.

    Thought maybe Glass Towers at Toff in Town (8pm). Anyone else interested? Cheers, Benno[masked]

    August 17, 2013

    • Matt G.

      Hi Ben. That could be an option - maybe we'll just play it by ear and see if anyone wants to move on. I'm sure there will still be plenty of us there at 5.30. Catch you then.

    Hi all!

    With such a big group and no Mark at the helm today to look for - get well Mark! - it might be good if we have a spot inside the pub to 'meetup'. It looks like there's a pool table inside, so let's make that the meeting spot for those who get there around 2pm'ish. I don't have a smartphone but hopefully someone else will to update this page as we go...

      That's very kind. Thank you Nat :)

    Morning all.it is with regret that I advise I won't be able to attend/host the event today. I have been battling a heavy cold / flu for a few days now and it has really taken hold. Lemsip n Vicks is ruling my world where lagers n laughter should be :( There are some great people attending today - hope you all enjoy each others company and have an awesome day

  • Matt G.

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks heaps for all your effort organising this. It promises to be a great day and I'm really looking forward to it. I'll probably been keen to stay on and catch James Kenyon. Having a listen to his stuff now on his website and it's pretty cool, laidback sounds. I guess we'll just play it by ear and see how things go, but if anyone else wants to stay on I'm sure I'll be up for it.
    Catch you on Sat. Cheers, Matt.
