Crack Wednesday is tonight!

05:42, Jul 15 2009

Whoa. Hello. Sorry for not blogging yesterday. I wrote a blog but it was a bit controversial and our blogs editor said I couldn’t put it up. Fair enough, I don’t want to get Stuff in trouble.

So anyway, I just wanted to write a quick note to tell you folks about this thing called Crack Wednesday. Crack Wednesday happens every other Wednesday (although it may become monthly some time soon) at Mighty Mighty in Wellington. What is Crack Wednesday, you ask. Some sort of drug-fuelled night of mayhem? Sort of, maybe, kind of.

Crack Wednesday is a party. Not one of those parties where you sit around drinking a coke and eating a chip while talking to your friend’s mum. They won’t let your friend’s mum into Mighty, and they don’t have any chips. No, Crack Wednesday is a night of drinking, live music (Tommy Ill, The Crackhouse 5, Guest Bands – this week it’s Rap Authoritah), and DJs (DJ Kerian Austin – on tour from Melbourne, and DJ Tea Time, on tour from Mt Cook) playing heaps of bangers and maybe one song by Anco. Oh, and entry is free. Pay no money! You could buy me a beer though if you wanted.

The Crackhouse 5
and I have organised the whole thing, and the last few have gone pretty darn well. We’ve been promoting the thing by wandering around Cuba St with little bags of crack with flyers attached and giving them to strangers. Some people run away, others get excited, others get upset. In fact I think we’re doing that again around 5.00 tonight so if you are around Cuba St at that time you could come give me a high five and I will give you a free bag of crack cocaine. It’s totally not crystallised sugar I swear.

Things you can expect at Crack Wednesday:
- Bangers
- Anco
- My buddy Hamish might drop a beer or three
- A bunch of funny-looking people rapping
- Someone with a moustache will make a pass at you
- You might meet Mark Sainsbury/Jeremy Wells
- Chicken Burgers (from Welcome Takeaways afterwards)
- Questionable dance moves


Things you can’t expect at Crack Wednesday:

- Being punched in the head by a guy in a Hallensteins shirt
- Diabetes
- No rapping
- Meeting John Key
- Tofu Burgers
- Fighting the bulge

So come along to Crack Wednesday! The next one is tonight! You didn’t have any plans anyway. You might get to meet me and that would be super exciting for you because I’m some guy who has a blog or something. So yeah, I’ll see you at Mighty tonight around 10!
