The Herd, plus some other acts from Aussie hip-hop label Elefant Traks, are playing at Earthcore In The Park on 13th March. As much as I'd love to see them, I won't be going, because:
- Earthcore is full of other music that doesn't interest me much. (Trance, dance, eletro, ambient.)
- $65 entry.
- They have a really bad web site: poorly designed (little structure, repeated content); inaccessible (images and Flash for text).
I think these last two reasons are the most offputting. They call for volunteers to help in a variety of ways. Perhaps it's time they ditch Loud11.com and call for volunteers who actually know how to make proper websites.
The Herd @ The Corner
The Herd is also playing a gig at The Corner Hotel on 21st April. $18 - much better. But I won't be going to that either: it's opening night for As You Like It and apparently I'm not supposed to just randomly take nights off. :-(
Oh well, hopefully their touring will bring them back to Melbourne some time soon.
