Always a big highlight of the year for me and this year I was glad that I did not have to take emergency measures unlike last year so I could afford to make it. I had already had a lot on in March and ended up going to quite a few comedy festival shows, but I was looking forward to this since the theme was announced back in January and I make a point of purchasing tickets for this show as soon as they are on sale.

I like the music of the Cure although I have never been to see them play live. They do have a good variety of songs that the different performers could interpret in their own ways. I can't really say I had a favourite as everyone was good in different ways. I always like seeing Aurora sing and it almost made up for missing Geraldine's show by seeing her perform here.

I am now a regular at the Half Arsed three so it was good to see Casey doing a few songs during the night also along with Scott Edgar.

It was a great night and I am looking forward to next year's show already.
