Welle Welle Welle… it’s a German indie music night!

October 27, 2010

 

It may not be often that you get a hankering for some Oompah … or for that matter a Falco fix…  but if you do have those moments where you want to get your lederhosen on – this is the night for you.  I personally have a weakness for Neue Deutsche Welle, and will be attending this night mit gusto (and bratwurst)…

In the words of the organisers of Schuss In Schwarze:

It’s a great night of tunes and dancing! Everything from Kraut rock, to Ska, Powerpop, Reggae, Punk, Neue Deutsche Welle, 60s Beat, Mod and plenty of the newest music from the German Speaking World! Drink, dance, be merry! Enjoy the best Gluehwein this side of the Yarra!

Schuss in Schwarze has been going for over a year now, and happens monthly at Willow Bar, 222 High Strasse, Northcote.

Join their Facebook Group to see upcoming dates as they’re announced…

and don’t forget – no matter what the weather – to say YES to the Gluhwein..

The Melbourne Browncoats

August 30, 2010

Too late to prime you for Joss Whedon’s flying visit to Melbourne for Writers’ Festival, I can only hope you were able to find that choice morsel on your own… but for Whedonverse devotees now feeling short of a Buffy Bonding session, fear not!

Melbourne has its own semi-official Whedon Fan Club in The Melbourne Browncoats.

Their website describes the following:

About Melbourne Browncoats

Welcome to the new home of the Melbourne Browncoats! This is a place for fans of Joss Whedon’s television series “Firefly” and movie “Serenity”, as well as other projects involving cast and crew of the Whedonverse.

For the past few years, we’ve been building a Browncoat community under the banner of Browncoats Downunder. And we’ve had a blast! Hosting pub nights, supporting the annual “Can’t Stop the Serenity” charity events and running a Browncoat Booth at local conventions.

And there’s more fun to come! We’re getting back to our roots and focusing on meeting local people at local events, hence the refinement in our group’s name.

We invite you to poke around the site, check out photos of our past activities and learn about what we’re up to next. And if you find you want more, why not join us? This is an all inclusive group, and there are no fees to join. Just come along to events which take your fancy, join us on Twitter and meet some of the wonderful folk that make up Melbourne’s Browncoat community.

As you can imagine, the Whedon Visitation was possibly the zenith of 2010’s Browncoat activities, but there will be plenty requiring a serious debrief and withdrawal-redressing any time soon, so check out their facebook/twitter/website and, if you find yourself amongst the saddened Serenity set – join on up!
