For those interested in some late night music and dance this Saturday (december 15), there is Spiral Dance's Slightly Early Summer Solstice gig at the Brecknock on King William Street. From 9pm to 1am and entry is free. Guarenteed to be lots of dancing and maybe even a chorus line doing the can-can (or in this case, the can't-can't).
And if that's not to your taste, Melbourne-based band Dandelion Wine is also playing Adelaide at the Grace Emily from 11:30pm (preceded by local band Brillig at 10:15 and Victorian sonsmith Tim Hudsmith at 9:15). Probably much less dancing, as the followers of darkwave are generally too cool to dance, but equally good music.
Decisons. Decisions. At least, if I get too depressed at Spiral I can always go visit Dandelion Wine and associate with the mostly emo-audience (not as tasty as most pagans, unless you get them out of their shell, in which case care must be taken when cooking or they will all fall apart; experience has led me to suggest a light dusting in flour and quickly frying in a light vegetable oil for the best results in this case).
