CSS @ The Corner Hotel

Thursday is like Tuesday right? Well it's better late than never.

On Saturday night we headed into the Corner Hotel in Richmond to see CSS live. We've seen them a few times before and it's always been a fun dance party type of gig so we knew at the least it would be an evening of fun.

The festivities began in the car as Lauren and I enjoyed our Vodka & Cranberry car drinks so by the time we'd made it to The Corner Hotel we were amped for Tequila shots and more vodka. We then mosied on up to the front of the stage where we found a new gig buddy that Lauren and Leah had be-friended at The Rapture gig last month.

Lovefoxx has chopped all her hair off and rid herself of those crazy jumpsuits that we had grown to love to bring the party in cut offs and home made t-shirts.

The band brought a more casual approach to their show this time around but it didn't remove any of the fun. The atmosphere that was coming from both band and crowd was electric.

At some stage in the show glitter was thrown all over the stage and onto the crowd - I'm still finding pieces of glitter in my bedroom.

We danced, smiled and sang along and had a super fun time. I can't wait for them to release some new music and get their butts back to Australia again. Hopefully this time we won't have to wait 3 years between visits.

This week has been crazy again at work . Being a travel agent sometimes we have to deal with crazy situations like trying to get people out of Egypt while there are riots and protests happening. It's been a bit stressful this week but I'm ready to go out and relax while watching the Greenhornes tonight at Northcote Social Club.

Peace Out

P.S Is anyone else super sad about The White Stripes being done? I know they haven't released anything in years but the fact that they've announced that it's really over brings on the sad face. Their music has been such a huge part of my life for so long that it's hard to believe that there won't be anymore new stuff to add to the collection. I'm sure I'll sit down sometime soon and post a bit more about this.
