It’s the weekend already and we have a fun line-up of things to do this weekend starting with Friday.
Friday 20th June
“What would you not have accomplished if you had been free?”” “”Possibly nothing at all; the overflow of my brain would probably, in a state of freedom, have evaporated in a thousand follies; misfortune is needed to bring to light the treasures of the human intellect. Compression is needed to explode gunpowder. Captivity has brought my mental faculties to a focus; and you are well aware that from the collision of clouds electricity is produced — from electricity, lightning, from lightning, illumination.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
Bishop’s College Auditorium No. 15, Boyd Place, Colombo 03, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

A night of rap, hip hop and live looping beatboxing and a kaleidoscopic grooves.
Listen to Larry T Hill http://quietbackroad.tumblr.com/audio Larry T Hill isn’t all about the music. With a striking solo performance, Larry T Hill crafts cheeky musical tales using just voice and a looping pedal. He records layer upon layer of his voice live on stage, creating elaborate yet fun musical pieces which you might expect to hear from a small band.
Charcoal Gallery Cafe 75 Hotel Road, Mount Lavinia.
When I was a kid I stole my bro’s skateboard and that didn’t go down well. In my first attempt I broke my skull like trying to skateboard (tiny exaggeration) and then I got a lot of preaching about how stealing your brother’s stuff is a very bad thing.
