Today I spent the afternoon at the Sydney Road Street Party with Michelle and Ruth. It's an annual celebration for the Brunswick community. We started off by watching a fashion show done by local stores and designers. There were some good clothes, and I now have a couple new stores to check out. We spent the next hour walking down Sydney Road checking out the various booths and sampling the local cuisine. There were also lots of different music acts on the various stages spread throughout the street. Sounds of Polynesia, who perform music from the Cook Islands, were excellent. There was also a very amusing Chinese heavy metal band called The Five Venoms. Their lead singer has the biggest hair I've ever seen.
Ruth and I headed over to The Brunswick Green at 4:00 p.m. to catch a set by Charles Jenkins, who was the lead singer of the band Icecream Hands. The place was packed, but we found a nice spot of grass to sit on out in the beer garden. Ruth's boyfriend Danny joined us there later. For dinner we went to Piazza 51 and had some good pizzas. Unfortunately, someone stole Michelle's wallet out of her purse while we were eating. Not the best ending to an otherwise good day.
