It’s no big shock that I don’t get out too much these days for fun (I’m trying to work on that), but this Tuesday just past I made an exception to my hermit ways to see one of my favourite bands in concert. Melbourne is a great city for live music, but with international acts not coming here all that often the tickets are usually sold out within minutes of their release. So when I happened to notice that tickets were still available (in December) for Death Cab I just had to jump at the chance.
To say I was a bit apprehensive was an understatement. I went on my own and I had never been to this venue before and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m not as confident as I used to be about these things. I was pleasantly surprised.
The Palace Theatre has a floor area and 3 balcony levels. I got a spot on the first balcony and it was really great because for the most part I could see.
It was a great concert. Dappled Cities opened the show and they were great! Usually the support isn’t that good but they were pretty ace. Then Death Cab came on and played for 2 hours straight!! They played stuff from all of their albums and there was a great moment where everyone sang along to ‘I Will Follow You Into The Dark’.
Here are my favourite shots I managed to get from my iphone of the show.

My Grandma’s lovely friend Joy (the awesome vintage finder) found this Catalogue and thought my dad might like it. I quickly snapped it up for me. Not for the content, but for the design and layout.
Design with computers is a fair bit different to what it was in the 50s and I just love the 1950s style. This is a booklet for caravan and trailer components, so the content may not be that fascinating but I love the mixture of hand drawn and the different type they have used.
I love the map and directions in the front cover and how it shows the tram route to get to it. I also thought that the last picture with it’s ‘Dual Purpose Trailer’ that can be for your car or your horse! was pretty cool!
I’m sure I’ll use this for design inspiration in the future. I think it’s great that these things survive so that new generations can see what things were like.

Happy Friday! I just wanted to share my Scoutie Girl column with you today. I think it’s one that you might enjoy reading.
I sometimes think that people get caught up in only creating something that is perfect and forget about how creating with others has more than one purpose. If you’re interested, you can read it here!
