Hot off the press! The gorgeous happy yess market moles have sent out a call for Darwin creatives to get their crafty fingers to work and donate said artsy tendencies to create promo posters for the market. And, you guessed it- I'm the lucky girl to have her poster put up around town for the upcoming month! Keep your eyes peeled for a poster that looks a lot like this (well, exactly like this):
If people don't see it, be sure to direct them right here! And, if you like it, please feed my hungry comments letterbox with your thoughts- I always love to hear them!For those of you who don't know, happy yess is a collective of committed locals who support Darwin's muso's and often help get young kids/ fledgling bands the exposure and opportunity to play that they need to get their feet off the ground. It is such an awesome Darwin 'thing': as well as its' involvement in the music scene, happy yess hosted my first post-uni exhibition with my friend Emma Long 3 years ago when it used to have its' own premises on Bennett Street. Now on Smith Street in the Browns Mart Complex, happy yess is still given loads of love and time from wonderful people who are paid mostly in the deep satisfaction of supporting something they truly believe in.
Check out the website on http://www.happyyess.com/ to see what's happening this month, and go along to some of the great gigs this Dry season; you never know what underrated musical gems you'll see play! If you have absolutely no idea what to see, go along on Thursday 19th May to see my gorgeous friend Gretchen (whose birthday it is today- happy birthday!) play in her band with Kris Keough, Red Plum and Snow- this would be an awesome place to start your happy yess experience, or even just to reacquaint yourself.
And, of course, cancel all your hair-washing plans for Sunday, 5th June and come to the happy yess market instead. I'll be there with bells on ready to meet all your poor things who missed out on the fun last time!
Happy Monday from Monty and me,
