REMINDER: Balloon in June or: It’s a Brict Broad Balloonlict Nict Tonict*
The Moon’s a Balloon according to David Niven’s first volume of memoirs (currently in the $2 bin out the front of the shop; it’s a cracking read, as is the follow-up Bring on the Empty Horses). But June’s a balloon at Desire, with our Bonfire@Desire Open Mic Night tonight.
*Translation: It's a bright, broad, balloonlight night tonight.
Today just happens to be the 224th anniversary of the first attempt at aerial reconnaissance. By hot air balloon. It’s also the last Tuesday of the month. So the theme of tonight’s Bonfire is ‘Balloon’? It’s been said that a balloon’s not a balloon until you let the balloon go (by one of the characters in Ivan Southall’s Let the Balloon Go). But you don’t have to base a whole children’s novel around it. Take it any direction you like – from flight, to partying, to prophylaxis. It’s your call.
Show begins 8pm sharp.
Performers: arrive 7:30pm even if you intend to be on in the second half.
