WE WERE SO EXCITED TO PLAY IN DARWIN FOR THE FIRST TIME SO WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME PREPARING OURSELVES MENTALLY

Darwin 003 - Adam getting a bit more ready

IT WAS SO GREAT TO ADD OUR NAME TO THE RAILWAY CLUB WALL BESIDE SOME OTHER GREAT AUSTRALIAN BANDS

THE DARWIN CROWD HONESTLY SEEMED PRETTY CONFUSED  AT THE START OF OUR SET MAYBE THEY DON’T REALLY GET A LOT OF ART ROCK BANDS UP THERE ANYWAY AFTER THE FIRST SONG THEY GOT IT AND WE ALL HAD LITERALLY THE BEST TIME TOGETHER

Darwin 0044 - We sold out of hats great job The Stiffys

THE BEARDS DID A REALLY GREAT JOB AND SANG A LOT ABOUT BEARDS AND EVERYONE REALLY ENJOYED IT

NATHANIEL BEARD FELL OFF THE STAGE AND HAD TO GET PATCHED UP BY THEIR TOUR MANAGER APPARENTLY HE DOES THAT A LOT EVER SINCE THEY STARTED DRINKING FACEY MCSTUBBLINGTONS

SATURDAY 11 APRIL – DARWIN

TO BE HONEST SATURDAY MORNING WAS A BIT ROUGH AND WE NEARLY HAD TO CALL AMBULANCES FOR OURSELVES BECAUSE OF ALL THE DRINKS THE NIGHT BEFORE

Darwin 01 - Jason not having a great time

WE THOUGHT THE BEST THING TO DO WOULD BE TO GET SOME FRESH AIR AND HAVE A RELAX IN NATURE

Darwin 05 - NT News

WHILE SHE INITIALLY DID NOT WANT TO LET US ON THE BOAT, THE TOUR GUIDE WAS REALLY GREAT WE PRETTY MUCH JUST BOBBED AROUND FOR AN HOUR WHILE SHE OFFERED BITS OF MEAT TO THE CROCODILES ARMED WITH NOTHING BUT A STICK

SHE SAID THAT IF THE BOAT TIPPED OVER THE SMARTEST THING WE COULD DO WOULD BE TO SWIM AWAY FROM THE LIFE JACKETS AS CROCODILES ARE ATTRACTED TO BRIGHT COLOURS

SHE EXPLAINED TO US THAT THEY DIDN’T REALLY BOTHER CARRYING A FIRST AID KIT BECAUSE IF A CROCODILE PULLS YOU IN YOU’RE PRETTY MUCH DONE SON

WE’D SMUGGLED A COUPLE OF DRINKS ONTO THE BOAT SO WE WERE FEELING MUCH BETTER BY THIS STAGE AND WERE MAKING SOME GREAT JOKES FROM DOWN THE BACK OF THE BOAT THE TOUR GUIDE SAID THAT SHE REALLY REGRETTED LETTING US ON THE BOAT BUT IT WAS TOO LATE BY THAT STAGE HAHAHAHA GREAT JOB THE STIFFYS

WE POPPED INTO THE HUMPTY DOO PUB TO REFRESH OURSELVES BEFORE HEADING BACK TO THE RAILWAY CLUB TO GET READY FOR THE SECOND SHOW

WE HAD A REALLY GREAT SHOW BECAUSE THERE WERE HEAPS OF LADIES DANCING UP THE FRONT THAT HELPS US PLAY BETTER AND ALSO MAKES EVERY MAN BECOME VERY INTERESTED IN DANCING

ONE WOMAN IN THE FRONT ROW YELLED AT US WHEN KISSY KISSY FINISHED BECAUSE SHE SAID SHE WAS JUST ABOUT TO ORGASM SO YEAH THAT’S PRETTY NICE HOPEFULLY SHE WAS ABLE TO GET DONE WHAT SHE NEEDED TO GET DONE DURING THE NEXT SONG

EVERYBODY DID SOME GREAT GUITAR SOLOS THAT NIGHT SO WE CELEBRATED AND THEN THINGS GOT PRETTY CRAZY THAT NIGHT BECAUSE IT TURNS OUT ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY IN DARWIN REALLY ENJOYS DRINKS SOMEONE RIPPED THE TOILET DOOR OFF

Darwin 10 - Broken toilet door

AFTER ENJOYING A FEW MORE DRINKS OURSELVES WE RETIRED TO THE BEARDS’ ACCOMMODATION BECAUSE THEY HAD A POOL NATHANIEL BEARD THREW HIS JOCKS UP ON THE ROOF SO ADAM DID AS WELL THEN NATHANIEL THREW HIS TOWEL ON THE ROOF AS WELL I WOULD HAVE JOINED IN BUT I DIDN’T HAVE A TOWEL OR JOCKS

APPARENTLY THE LADY THAT RUNS THE HOTEL WASN’T TOO HAPPY ABOUT ALL THE JOCKS ON THE ROOF THE NEXT DAY BUT THAT’S THE MUSIC BUSINESS AM I RIGHT HAHAHAHAHA GREAT JOKES GUYS
