Difficult Music Festival 2011 underway

Written by Michael Carr on January 10, 2011

Having started last week with the first event taking place on January 2nd (I know ay, they waste no time), Sydney’s Difficult Music Festival 2011, a not-for-profit series of events is already underway, and if like me you’ve missed the first run of gigs be sure to get your shit together and make up for your laziness in the weeks to come.

Here’s what’s left of the schedule below, the January 15th Fabulous Diamonds and Interzone show at Sedition, and the big one at the Excelsior on Jan 28th being my two top picks for the festival.
