Birthday Extravaganza!

Onto nicer things! Tonight begins my long weekend of birthday extravaganza!!! I was going to have some kind of something to celebrate but by the time I looked in my diary for this weekend, I felt like, well, what was planned was enough. Enough for me to feel happy and loved and joyful.

Tonight I am off to see 13 MOST BEAUTIFUL ... SONGS FOR ANDY WARHOL'S SCREEN TESTS with kathrynlinge. She is currently flying back to Perth as we speak and will hop off the plane and join me for predinner drinks. I shall try and find something in a pretty glass and I shall be wearing The Shoes!

Blurb for the show:
Between 1964 and 1966, pop icon Andy Warhol shot roughly 500 'screen tests' at The Factory, his famed New York studio. Shot in black and white in uninterrupted takes, these four-minute scenes open a window into a dynamically creative era in America.

New York indie songwriters Dean & Britta (formerly of Luna) perform original and cover songs that perfectly suit the mood of each film. Music ranges from dreamy, swirling pop to ominous instrumentals for dancer Freddy Herko, who fell to his death a few weeks after shooting his film, to a blazing version of a rare Velvet Underground song for a young Lou Reed.


And because I refuse to be embarrassed about it ... Saturday is my 34th birthday. Yay me. And I am really enjoying my 30s *grins*.
