Arrogance does not count as humour. You're not Stephen Colbert, no matter how conservative your haircut is.

I'm DJing 80s yacht rock at Shameless at Iguana Bar in Kings Cross this Saturday night. It's just like me DJing a house party I guess.

finally set up a wordpress to pimp all my music activities: dylabsoundsystem.wordpress.com

another manic weekend in which I didn't achieve my primary objectives. but that's life.

Twist and Shout is back for a third outing on Friday 9th at The Brighton Bar... come down...

Sydney's favourite decade-specific dance party, Twist and Shout, is back at The Brighton Up Bar for round three. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair as we present a belated Fourth of July extravaganza (on July 9th) celebrating all things Americana, 60s and danceable: from Motown and Stax to Monterey Pop and Woodstock. From the Summer of Love and Andy Warhol's Factory to The Stones at Altamont. From doo wop to bubblegum pop to psych rock, we'll have Sydney's Mad Men, Motowners and Moptops shaking their tailfeathers and dancing in the streets.

"It sounds like: the soundtrack to Forrest Gump if it was directed by Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino" – us in The Brag Magazine

What: Twist and Shout: 60’s Dance Party
Who: Djs Milli Von Ill, Twist and Shout DJs
When: Friday July 9th, 9pm – 3am
Where: Brighton Up Bar (upstairs, Brighton Hotel, corner Oxford and Riley Streets, Darlinghurst)

You're Welcome Ireland [Nov. 5th, 2009|03:19 pm]
mr poovey
Ireland has given us faous literary figures, amazing music, iconic beer and incredibly friendly good times. Australia has given Ireland Harvey Norman ads (Go Harvey, Go Harvey!) and The Panel.

I'm loving it here. Maybe it's the self-deprecatory sense of humour, their friendliness and honesty about life's up and downs, their playfulness with the English language or just the love of a good beer and a yarn, but I definitely feel like Dublin and Ireland have reminded me of a part of myself I never knew existed. Also, coming from Irish stock and looking somewhat like a leprechaun I feel at home walking the streets, unlike in say, Chicago or The Mission in San Francisco where I was recently.

They also have Coopers Beer and Tim Hortons coffee - so I've never felt more culturally confused about where I am at one time.

I also love the history here. It surrounds you. The Vikings, the church, the Troubles, the bog bodies, the fact they still have evening edition newspapers. It's really everywhere.

Now onto London
