Party write up from Monster Children 

WHAT HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED THIS PAST YEAR? ME? I WASHED MY SHEETS TWICE AND MANAGED TO RETURN SOME LATE DVD’S, I ALSO WON A ‘FREE SCRATCHIE’ ON A INSTANT SCRATCH-IT THAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY. I GUESS YOU COULD SAY 2014 IS MY YEAR.

Then you have those overachievers – I’m talking about the people with the sticky tape in between their glasses who land space probes on asteroids, come up with vaccines for ebola and can hold down a full time job at Woolworths.

The good guys at North Journal are overachievers. They recently just released ‘North Journal No.4′ as well as ticking over a full year in the independent publishing game, and when you reach a milestone such as that, you do as any independent publisher does and spend what little money you have on throwing a big fuck-off party!

The boys did just that, and with 450 RSVP’s who knew what to expect on the evening. The night ended up turning into a complete blow out as the thirsty crowd congregated at the Wild Things gallery, the space ‘wild’ by name and nature.

Northern Beaches swamp rockers The Ruminaters launched their debut album on the night. The crowd sweated profusely as they lost their shit to the Rumi’s (honourable mention to the guy with his junk out the entire set) and afterwards Rad Dan took control of the decks and spun everybody’s favourite Aussie anthems.

My accomplishments for the evening? Drinking half of Dan Murphy’s as well as eating my body weight in CFC (Could be fried chicken), where I got my meal upsized for free before catching the bus home. As previously mentioned I guess you could say 2014 is my year.
