Music Feeds Recommends… Gig Picks 17/08/09

Well lads, ladettes and non-gender specifics, it’s Monday afternoon and for most of you out there that probably means four more solid days of work before the weekend winds around again. We here at Music Feeds feel your pain, so we’ve decided to start trying to brighten up your Mondays by sharing with you our picks for the best gigs on around Sydney this week. Now, we realise some of these are on school nights, but what better way to give the boss the finger than to wander in to work late the next day, bleary eyed, hungover with ears still bleeding from an awesome gig the night before? (Well, you could stalk from office to office with an Armalite AR-10 carbine gas-powered semi-automatic weapon, pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers… but we reckon our way’s more fun.)
