Wow.  A message from Tim.  Long time, no hear from the “original” powderworks list creator.  I’m mostly a lurker myself nowadays.


I remember other names – Indi, Krusty, and Pete (who still posts occasionally).  I fear I won’t connect with this tour at all.  No venue is convenient at all and the timing sux as I have pre-existing commitments in early May, when I might have driven to Atlanta.  Glad I’ve seen them twice before.

Hello all.  I haven't been keeping up with the list, or even dipped all that much into the music for a good while.  However, I watched some of the press conference and so many of the songs are popping into my head.  This is definitely the time for Midnight Oil to be back.

I've been living in Ireland for awhile now, so my nearest gig is London on the 4th of July.  It'll undoubtedly be a brilliant show... but I'd have to go on my own as my wife isn't necessarily a huge fan, and I'm pretty sure our daughter (who will be almost 6 months old at that point) isn't quite ready for the Power and the Passion.

I am definitely struggling with Eminent Practicality vs. FOMO/Powderworker Disloyalty!
