    The First announcement of the lineup for Big Day Out 07 has finally come! And some good news so far:

    Tool
    Muse
    The Killers
    Jet
    Eskimo Joe
    Violent Femmes
    The Sleepy Jackson

    I went to this for the first time last year and loved every minute of it, but I promised myself I'd go again no matter the lineup. Based on this, I don't have to worry much :p Anyone else going next year?

    With the release of the initial line-up, I'm now very tempted to make the trip to Sydney for it.

    Should I find myself with the money to spare and someone else willing to attend, I might go. That is, if it even gets to Melbourne this year - I think I heard that venue changes are wreaking havoc with organising it.

    I heard about that. Big bummer, though I'm sure they'll figure something out.

    Speaking of, I'm crossing my fingers for a few local bands to be added to the list for round two announcements, The Grates being the obvious one. I'd also be surprised if Little Birdy aren't added to the already strong Perth collection. Yay, we're actually good at something here!! :p

    I've already got a load of music lined up over this Summer, so I'll probably just seek out a few individual songs like always.

    Did anyone go to the Foo Fighters at the Opera House last week?

    Tickets are on sale now. As usual, Perth won't be sold out so I'll probably pick them up around november, if I decide to go.

    And what a surprise, Sydney sold out straight away. I'll consider the various options of waiting for the rest of the release or heading to either Melbourne or the Gold Coast.

    I remember going to the BDO at the Sydney Showgrounds, back when it was $40 and didn't sell out until the day. Saw Soundgarden, which was awesome...

    Damn kids!

    SHE LIVES! *points at Foxi*


    Anyway: I want very badly to go to the BDO next year, and I live just around the corner from it too. I could go home and veg out when I wanted to have a rest. But I HATE the chil'uns they let in. I know that everyone wants to have agood time, and I was once a little punk kid who thought they were aweshum at the BDO, but I'm old and easily irritated now. :p

    That being said, I'll still probably go. I mean, the violent femmes are playing!

    I got a strange e-mail saying I'm in the running for Big Day out tickets and they had my name and address. i know my sisters tried to get tickets, but I didn't as I'm not interested really.

    Anyone know anything about that?

    If you need any help *nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more* let me know :p Otherwise, hopefully I'll be there with a few mates. I'm hanging out to see who's added to the lineup first.
