It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this blog…unfortunately uni has taken over a little bit and I’ve hardly had time to breathe, let alone write anything. But never fear, 3 readers, holidays are almost upon us, and transmission will soon resume as normal!

In the meantime though, check out the latest showcase offering from Musicadium. This time around they’ve managed to score a prime Saturday night spot at Bar Soma in the valley, on the 3rd of October. Featuring on the evening will be Sietta (Melbourne), Brisbane’s own Felinedown, and ex-QUT student MC Castel. Closing out the festivities will be 3 ace DJs, including my fellow Musicadium Intern DJ Jane Doe!

Tickets are only $10 entry, and it all kicks off from 9pm, Saturday 3rd of October. For those of you playing at home that’s uni mid-semester break, so there is absolutely no excuse not to come! See y’all there.

And for the regulars, I’ll start posting things as soon as uni dies down a little bit.
