Well well well.
A long weekend and a shitload of gigs to get out to.
Here's my picks...

Saturday sees the 14th version of Punks Outside taking place at Sydney Steel Road in Marrickville. Free, All Ages, outdoor fun with Obat Batuk + Roadside Burial + Inebrious Bastard + Ivan & the Backpackers + ratbag + Disintegrator + Stove Tattoo + Riot Nine.
Then get over to Blackwire for another evening of tunes.
Diploid + Dirty Charlie (Bris) + Ache + Frame 313 + Hacked to Chunks
Then sleep all day Sunday or go to church or make tacos or whatever you do with the rest of your life.
Diploid, those Victorian people who play a form of Blackened Hardcore and feature a dual 'gender equal' vocal attack, are coming to Sydney and its surrounds. They are even joined by Queenslanders, Dirty Charlie, on the Saturday. That's two interstate bands plus some pretty good locals for the price of one!
Diploid, the band that has recorded a song featuring Extortion's Rohan doing vocals and that features members from recent to Sydney band Idle Minds, will pleasantly surprise your Sydney elite-ish sensibilities.
Diploid, go and see them.
Dudes split their songs for a release, Melbourne math metal band Vendors Rich and Shut In (Diploid, World at a Glance and Idle Minds). For free download now on the good ol' trustworthy bandcamp. Two very different approached to music, Shut In offers more soundscapey songs, as well as layering some lo-fi brutal downtrodden noises and d-beat, contrasting with Vendors Rich energetic metal/thrash. Never let genres get in the way of a good friendship I say.
Tenderloin Hooker Needles have announced the completion of the Seth Putnam/Anal Cunt compilation that I'd brought your attention to not that long ago. The release is titled Soundscapes for a Deep Slumber, it features many bands from around world and can be downloaded by going here. Here's their spill:
Finally! The unofficial Seth Putnam/Anal Cunt tribute compilation we have been working on is finally here. I want to express my gratitude to the participating bands and strongly ask that you follow these bands and support them wherever you are.
The booklet in the release also has a mini-bio of each band. Here's their origin and links:Diploid (Australia) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Diploid/133984343293662
