Just a quick reminder that the 2nd reunion for all those who went to the Crystal/Seaview Ballroom in Fitzroy St, St. Kilda is on this sunday. Its starts around 2pm and has two bands, one of which is a tribute to the welsh musician/artist John Cale.
Michael and I saw a video installation work of Cales in the 2009 Venice Biennale which was really interesting. Dyddiau Du/Dark Days. It was set on about 7 screens and showed him traversing the surrounds of his Welsh home town, finally culminating with him climbing up a hill. (It was based on a myth from the area). The score was amazing.
We went to the first reunion a few months ago and it was fun. A lot of old faces, some recognisable, some not. This one promises to be just as good, if not better, and the organisers say that there will be more time for chatting (without loud bands in the background to spoil it) and hanging around. We must all be getting old!
