Sydney meetup?
posted July 27, 2011 2:21 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Thu August 4 at 6:00 PM, The Australian Heritage
100 Cumberland St, The Rocks NSW 2000, Australia (Map & Directions)
Hey all, I'm going to be in Sydney for a couple days next week and would love to meet up at a bar and see those of you from MeFi I never get to meet in person. I have no idea where to meet up, but Thursday night next week (August 4th) somewhere downtown by the circular quay would work best for me.

What sort of place would suit? Is the priority good food, good beer, or a view of the harbour? Sometimes they're mutually exclusive. :)

The Lord Nelson is probably the best place for beer, but it's small and gets crowded quickly. The Australian Heritage is where we took Jessamyn for her meetup; it's bigger with a decent beer selection and lots of food (pizzas, etc). The Glenmore is a bit crappier, but they've got a rooftop bar (which is where we held the 10th anniversary meetup). Any of those would probably do!

The Australian Heritage sounds like the best option to me.
posted by mathowie at 2:43 PM on July 27, 2011


Cool, I just set this as a confirmed meetup at 6pm that night, hope folks can come out!

You set it for Wednesday Matt - is that what you meant to do? Thought you said Thursday would work better...

Oops, yeah, good call. Fixed.

I might drop by.

I could be there, but not till closer to 7.30. Does that suit? Got to put the munchkins to bed....
posted by taff at 12:05 AM on July 28, 2011


OK, unless there's anything I've forgotten, I'm in.

Can I suggest we don't go upstairs to the rooftop bar? Or go up, have a look at the nice view, then get back down into the warmth?

That +googlecal is a nice addition, I've never noticed it. Cool.

Wait, the Australian has a rooftop bar too? I thought only the Glenmore did. At any rate, I vote for being in the warm. :)
posted by web-goddess at 2:40 PM on July 28, 2011


Cool. Will try to join a bit later. Perhaps 6:30-ish.

so... just to clarify.... if i got there closer to 7.30... would anyone still be there?

Not sure, taff. I'd guess from past meetups I'd be there until at least 7 or 8, but then I'm going to be on a new timezone and might be hitting a wall by 7pm.

Great news, and amusebuche and I are a go. Looking forward to catching up with the old crew and meeting Matt.
posted by qwip at 5:48 PM on July 30, 2011


Amusebuche just brought up an interesting point over email - should we book a table? I don't know if it gets busy there Thursday nights. Does anybody remember what we did when Jessamyn visited?
posted by web-goddess at 11:50 PM on July 30, 2011


I was there a couple weeks ago at Friday lunchtime with some visitors, and it was *packed*, mainly with business people, so I'm guessing that after work will be very busy too. If it's possible to book, it's probably a good idea.
posted by amusebuche at 11:55 PM on July 30, 2011


Sounds like a plan. If you're the one that can get there the earliest, do you mind booking it? I'll be coming across the city so I'm not sure I'll get there before 6...

I should be there, most likely with lil ubu in tow (though this could mean leaving suddenly when it's sleepytime). How nice, too, that qwip & amusebuche are back in town - is this just a visit or another working stint?

There's no rooftop bar at the Australian Heritage that I know of, but on the bright side, languagehat said it looks like it belongs in a model railway set, it's that cute. Both pubs just happen to be adjacent to the entry point of the cycle path across the Harbour Bridge; a piece of trivia that might be of interest.

Tccchk. These days Birrong/Regents Park is barely the Inner West. If the Domain editors had their way, the Eastern Suburbs would stop at about Strathfield, the Inner West would extend to Bonnyrigg and you'd start the Northern Beaches one stop after Milson's Point. You heard it here first: Airds/Minto/Ingleburn is the new Paddington.

Mind you, give or take a hundred years of sea level rise and we'll be forcing the matter.

Man you need to branch out from the barely half-way to Petersham Parramatta Road buses and onto the Bankstown and East Hills lines. Live a little.

(For a little while the last Sydney IRL was mapped somewhere in a suburban pub in Cabramatta, which would have made for some interesting navigation. Or some good pork rolls.)

There's no need to go any further west than Marrickville for good pork rolls.

Nah. I haven't heard the song yet (though I know about it) and I doubt it could match the power of the original. Same goes with the touring Finn Brothers cover show.
posted by Lovecraft In Brooklyn at 4:53 PM on August 1, 2011


Web-goddess, I may have to disagree with you. The only thing worse than the tedious original song is that pompous wanker John Bell pompously pompoussing like a pompous, pompous... Well, I watched the video, and cringed, until he came on at which point I just burst out laughing. From tragedy to comedy, a rocket from the crap. Leslie Neilsen couldn't have done it better.

Mind you, Angus and Julia Stone are appropriate artists to cover Nick Cave: middle-class self-absorbed urgers pretending they warped in from Greenwich Village c.1965, writing inane pop that Rebecca Black would be embarassed to sing and making arseloads of money out of earthy, studenty poverty-chic affectation. Yes, Jarvis, it's as bad as you said. They think that poor is cool.

Someone start me on the John Butler Trio or Powderfinger. I dare you all.

You dare compare John Butler Trio, Powderfinger, or Angus & Julia Stone to St Nick Cave? I saw Grinderman at the end of a massive Big Day Out this year and they easily matched Iggy Pop, Andrew WK, Jim Jones Revue.... I saw Angus and Julia Stone at Peats and I literally had to struggle to stay awake.

Jarvis is the only person you mentioned who's a match for Nick.

Hah. My theories about the venally commercial motivations of Nick Cave fans are reconfirming themselves. See a Bad Seeds collection in the CD case, find Robert Kiyosaki and John Gray self-help books on the shelf.

Hah. My theories about the venally commercial motivations of Nick Cave fans are reconfirming themselves.

Wha?
Yes, when I was 15 and hearing 'The Curse of Milhaven' for the first time on a mix CD on the way back home from camp and was utterly stunned I was being 'venally commercial'. When I played his albums constantly to drown out fighting I was being 'venally commercial'. When I sat upstairs playing Diablo and listening to Nocturama that was because somebody paid me. When I first moved to Australia and, lost and confused, went to Homebake becaues 'holy shit, Nick Cave and a bunch of people I've never heard of are playing in a park!' my motives were all about commerce. When he appeared on stage, preceded by a swarm of bats from The Domain, it was all a stunt. Of course.

You remind me of some of Dave Graney's rants on Mess & Noise, but Dave Graney has the talent and style to back it up.
posted by Lovecraft In Brooklyn at 5:29 PM on August 1, 2011


I'm not going to gainsay your hard-earned and well-displayed music credibility, LiB. I'm just saying Nick Cave is the choice of the Australian middle classes who want easily digestible music for social climbing purposes. He writes his music unthreatening, easily intelligible, and friendly, even when he's trying to be deep and soulful. Hell even when he was doing hard-rock back in the 80s, you could understand all the words and sing along. He is the Wiggles of Australian rock 'n' roll.

John Howard once said that his favourite musician was Bob Dylan---but for the music, not for the lyrics. I'll bet he and Janette have got a few Nick Cave CDs around the house.

Perhaps that is my problem. I don't identify, culturally, as an Australian so I can enjoy Nick Cave as a gothic singer song-writer in the Tom Waits mode or AC/DC and Cold Chisel and Living End as great rock bands without worrying about being too middle-class or too bogan. Like my (American) peers, I grew up listening to Nick Cave.

"He writes his music unthreatening, easily intelligible, and friendly."

Huh? Even putting aside the mostly pure noise of The Birthday Party, the man has songs with body counts in the double digits. He writes about rape and murder and necrophillia and obsession. He may not be making (mostly) atonal noise, but he's certainly less safe than the Washington/Angus & Julia/Powderfinger pap that dominates the airwaves. I never heard anything like him growing up.

'Stoned in a bookstore, sober in a nightclub. Sex is everywhere but nowhere around me' is still a great line, Fiasco. But leave off the Ben Lee, please. I shied away from doing some acoustic Against Me! covers when I found out he did the same thing.


Since we're on the subject, Sydney's best singer-songwriter is a bloke named Perry Keyes. Check him out.

Taff: train to Circular Quay station on the Inner West or Bankstown line, then about five minutes' walk uphill. Don't bother with a bus at that time of day, you'd be better off walking down George St.

Fantastic to see everybody again, as well as a few new faces. Shame we had to take off early, but unfortunately babies tend to encroach on one's beer drinking time.

Have a great time, Matt, and remember to steer clear of "prominent Griffith businessmen" & "colourful Sydney racing identities". These can often look just like regular people, so to be on the safe side it's best not to interact with anybody.

Good to meet everyone! And I look forward to qwip's pictures to see how awkward I look next to the world's cutest not-quite-toddler.

AmbroseChapel, try a search under "Devonshire Street Tunnel" on pictureaustralia.org. It's a brilliant collaboration between libraries and archives--I could spend all day on there if I didn't have to work. For bonus eye-opening material, do an image search under location "National Archives of Australia" and image creator "ASIO".

Lovecraft, I can't believe you blanked out when I mentioned Frankie and Johnny. For your edumacation, brother.

Amusebouche, if you end up wanting more early colonialia after you finish Hughes, check out Inga Clendinnen's recent Dancing With Strangers (reviewed here).

That's what I can recall wanting to look up this morning. Anything else?

Fiasco did not disappoint
