Acqua alta comes to Canberra
It was only 2 weeks ago that we were in Venice and the storms were reported worldwide and the acqua alta prevented us leaving our apartment. That was only for 30 minutes: the tides come and go and that area wasn't so bad and if we had galoshes we could have left. So I'm out with Tilt for my first return gig at Molly and what happens? Acqua alta at Molly Bar! It was all clear before the gig but we heard rain as we descended the stairs and found a drenching stream dropping from the lintel and high water up to the door. But they were prepared: Molly has a ramp to avoid local inundations. We were drenched getting cars and loading but we shared a few laughs with the locals leaving. It was all worth it. Great gig, so much fun to return and play again. Thanks to James and Dave and Molly.
