Q&A: Rusty From A Day By The Green


When’s the gig and with who?

The show is on Saturday January 12 at the St Kilda Bowling Club. The Fucks Fucks are headlining with Valentiine, Mesa Cosa, Cold Harbour, Hell Hounds, Marilyn Rose and the Thorns, 12FU, Fiona Lee Maynard And Her Holy Men, The Divine Fluxus and Noir.

If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be and why?

It would actually be a box of Cadbury Favourites. Plenty of choice, and something for everyone.

What can a punter expect from the gig?

A diverse selection of extremely talented local artists. Great value for money. Cheap drinks and great food. Happy people!

Why should everyone come and see the event?

To support a wide range of Melbourne artists and to prove that St Kilda still has a vibrant music scene. Also because it’s great value and great fun!


Where would you like to be in five years?

Still presenting A Day By The Green and hopefully using what we’ve learnt to put on other like-minded events. Melbourne has one of the worlds’ greatest music scenes, but we have to work to keep it vibrant.

When are you doing your thing next?

The next one will be in April, followed by one in October. We aim to present A Day By The Green three times a year, but we’ve learnt to avoid the colder months.

What makes you happiest about what you’re doing?

Seeing great artists and the joy on fans faces, enjoying great live local music and catching up with friends.

Describe the best gig you’ve ever organised?

Every A Day By The Green has been mighty fun, and we certainly expect this Saturday to be the same. There’s a lot of hard work involved, and we’re exhausted by the end of the day, but they’re all worth it.
