If I had the facilities, I would illustrate this post with a picture of a mule wearing a black skivvy and a beret. One for the Melburnians.
Cyndi Boste is playing the Lomond Hotel in Brunswick, which I guess is in Melbourne (maybe I'm thinking of Brunswick Street) this Saturday night at 9pm. If you can, I highly recommend going. She is a wonderful singer-songwriter in the folky-bluesy vein of Lucinda Williams, but very much her own woman.
