Melbourne Music 29th September – 10th October

“Melbourne music, a new event designed to celebrate the city’s diverse and lively music scene.”

Yet another reason to be glad I moved to Melbourne. While it officially kicked off today, I thought i’d post something to inform/remind you all to get along and support the Melbourne music scene. Whether it be live music, workshops or public lecturers, Melbourne Music has something for you.
