Loop, and Tegan and Sara

Our Project for 2009 is about visiting new bars in Melbourne city each week, finding new places, meeting new people. I mean, it's 2009 Husband Find, but we've toned that down a bit!! We are drawing out a bar from Dan's pack of Bar Secrets in Melbourne, and really we just need to stay for one drink, at least.

Dan, Nikki, Mary, Alissa, Simon, Bec and I headed down Bourke Street on a tram, after downing a couple of cheeky beers at work, to get to our first draw, Madame Brussels. Finding the rooftop bar's enterance on level 3 of the designated address, we also found a line three flights of stairs long. And we were thirsty!

Thanksfully, just around the corner in little laneway called Meyers Place was Loop, which spilled out into the laneway to meet the drinkers from the bar opposite. Outside drinking in perfect Melbourne summer weather was what we were aiming for all week!

So a little secret bar find of our own, the beer flowed, and people were mingled. Jenny and Mary, and soon after Katie, joined us for Week One's Friday night.

After a spot of food, Katie and I then went across the road to the Palace for our sold out gig. We arrived in time to see one of the support acts, An Horse.

Again, the venue was packed to the rafters with people, ready for the main act, Tegan and Sara.

Never have I seen so much girl on girl action within a crowd, the two sisters up on stage chatted, told stories about wach song, and belted our their songs. I must admit to only hearing their latest album, so I hadn't heard much of their music, but they were quite good.

Encore consisted of an awesome rendition of Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark, before their big hit, Back In Your Head - this song was played with such power and energy, their best track of the night, to finish.
