No, seriously, it will be awesome. Unless you have something else on?

You’re busy? You were free a few seconds ago.

What do you mean you’ve not heard of Lizard Punch?

I’m shocked and appalled you’re not familiar with Dumpster Droid.

Have you not seen Officer Parrot in action?

Really?

Never?

You go out, right?

I mean, you do support Australia’s live music scene?

I thought I saw you at the rally. What was that all about then?

We campaigned to keep the small venues open and safe from strict liquor licensing laws so we could enjoy bands and artists such as these at our leisure and now you’re telling me you’re not interested?

You know what? I’m beginning to suspect you were never that interested to begin with.
