I thought that the Mars Volta concert was tonight. After work I met up with a guy from the Socialist Alternative (don’t worry, I’m not a Socialist! I just wanted to see what he had to say), and then I grabbed a tram, heading down from the city towards St Kilda beach. Upon my arrival at the Palace I jumped in the queue for ticket collection, and this was when my first doubts began. Where I would normally expect a Mars Volta crowd to largely be adorned in black I was seeing quite a bit of color. Jazzy mod haircuts assailed me. My friend was 45 minutes late.
I called him.
I’d stuffed up.
I was in the line for Franz Ferdinand.
Mars Volta will be playing on Thursday night.
