Who can be bored when there’s laundry to do?
Top 5 things you should do today, other than your laundry:
1. Ride yer bike! Go for a walk! Drink a coffee at a sidewalk cafe! Hello sunshine – welcome back, we love you.
2. If that’s all too active, watch some hapless fools work up a sweat, in the water no less. Last day of FINA… Last chance to check out wet muscled super people in Melbourne before footy season cranks up…
3. Tired of lycra? Get some arts up ya! Try: Geoffrey Rush in Ionesco’s absurdist romp Exit the King (5pm), or Anna Tregloan’s perplexing theatrical installation Black (any time 2-5pm) at the Malthouse Theatre in Southbank.
5. City too far from home?
Northies: check out the modestly sublime, melancholic alt-country ruffians from Slipper at Brunswick’s newly renov Edinburgh Castle, sister to Northcote’s Wesley Anne. Slipper will folk your socks Sundays in April and May, 7-9pm, corner of Sydney and Albion.
Southies: swing in to the perennial Prince Bandroom and bliss to the rootsy, reggae rhythms of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars. Sharing the foot tapping, body bopping, soul cleansing, all-star love from 7.30 pm.
