We're not consciously bacist, but there is a lot of institutional bacism.

14th should be good for me as long as my shifts aren’t change.
I'm voting 14th as well then :) not a proper fest without a marshall stack involved :)
Oh shit... I don't know if it will fit in my "current" car. :lol:

Booked for 11am on the 14th of August. Debase, Morningside.

Two rooms, one with bass amp and drums, the other largely empty.

$10 koha would be appreciated to go towards costs ($140). Any excess will be donated back into the forum.

Edited.

If you think I know what month we're in, you're sorely mistaken.

I've invited a friend who is an occasional NZG lurker, and my nephew who is a handy player and hopefully a one-day forumite.

Might need a third room...

nah mate, its auckland... 3 people and an old dog missing a leg. And two of them will be passers-by.

In further news, I drove past the dogs bollix the other day and its gone, first time that way for ages - another sad passing of a venue, to be expected though. Think we've done a couple of forum gigs there, one with the ARSE on the line-up and a couple of gearfests.

To be fair it went downhill a few years back when they shut for awhile, then came back with the dancefloor gone primarily as a 'venue'
