Today I had lunch “in the nice food court” with my old workmate EO. She gave me some surprising news – I’m not telling you what, it’s “private”!
After work, Dave & I had some dinner at the Eat Art Truck located at Belmore Park, near Central. I had a very flavoursome Confit spatchcock ssam with crispy noodles $12 (this turned out to be extremely un-IBS friendly) and Dave had Pulled Pork in a bun with mustard cabbage with hot sauce $12. I also had a Pear & Rhubarb EAT Juice which was very nice but also dangerously un-IBS friendly.
We then walked over to Cake Pop-Up Wine Bar in Chippendale, where we met up with The Brad, Confused Machines, Adam & Ben.
FraserStudios will be closing their doors soon and the team at Cake wines will be sending the Chippo warehouse off in style with a pop-up bar. Across three weeks there will be hand picked events including FBi live broadcasts, a solo piano session from Joyride, DJ sets from the boys at Future Classic DJs as well as art installations, theatre and of course wine tastings. All four cake varieties will be pouring as well as boutique cider from the Hills and beer from 4 Pines Brewery plus delicious food from Bourke Street Bakery. it’s part of the studios’ “30 days & 30 nights” mini-festival, so go say cheerio.
It was an interesting, not too hipster gathering. There was the Jafé Jaffles van – with dishes such as the David Jafflehoff! I had a banana, with caramel & nuts number for dessert – the caramel could have been gooey-er. There was an art exhibition as well, a variety of artworks from traditional painting, installation, sculpture and video art were on display.
After that, we walked down the road a bit to Serial Space for this… blurb taken from The Thousands (so it must be cool)
Bee Mask from Philadelphia is a bit of a smarty pants. His music has been dubbed “intellect as sound sculpture” and comes from “[taking] entropy way too personally”. An appropriate co-star, then, is Pimmon, who was once deemed “second only to Fennesz as a laptop artist”. Stitched Vision washes low tides of noise-hush over synth melodies, and you’re probably familiar with the Krautrock mysteries of Secret Birds. Quietly, I’m most excited because DJing all night is HTRK’s Nigel Yang.
It had an old school experimental music night vibe to it, like the Clan Analogue or Frigid parties from back in the day. I met a few new random guys – there was Matt 2 and Matt 3 but Confused Machines was disappointed that there wasn’t a 4-matt/format/fourth matt. Ha ha.
