Monarchy – You Don’t Want To Dance With Me – Acoustic Version

By | September 22nd, 2018|music|

As always, listening to an archived Monarchy song satisfies a craving I never knew I had.

I really enjoyed Lansy Feng's performance of How I met my dead husband, at the Gasworks as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival tonight.

Last night was the perfect evening in many ways. Just great company, great food, and amazing music. I was so lucky to see Cool Out Sun at the Reverence Hotel last night. I was following my friends into the band room, I could see them just in front of me, and the door bitch said [...]
