    Any TB'ers up here?

    I arrived yesterday just until Friday as my new job got postponed for a week.

    Anyone got any suggestions for good bands/shows (or anything) to check out whilst I'm here?

    Yeah, I'm going to try and score a ticket for tonight. If I can't get one then I'll try when I'm back up here at the end of August.

    So you made the big move huh? Fill me in, how does Scotland compare to "sunny" Melbourne?

    It compares very nicely at the moment :D

    It was comfortably warm all week. Nice mild nights as well. Unfortunately I'm back in London now where it's unpleasantly humid :(

    I really liked Edinburgh although it was crazy busy with the festival on. I did a day trip out to St Andrews which was very nice.

    I felt very at home in Scotland. Much more than in London. I can't wait to get back up there actually. I didn't see anywhere near as many festival shows as I intended but will try and remedy that when I go back at the end of the month.

    I know Melbourne has been very cold recently. What's Syd-oo-knee been like?

    It's wierd. Also cold, but I just had breakfast outside and it's quite nice in the sun. I gather it wouldn't even be cold at all away from the ocean.........

    Good to hear you're enjoying the move :)
