Get out!
few gigs on worth checking... Brooklyn reggae MC Coolie Ranx is on tonight at Safari Lounge in Ponsonby, with support from the WBC, should be killer...

and the second annual Base FM Shake & Bake is coming...

"Time for another day of live aerosole art, fun, football and bad Base tunes. All down at the the local gem of Ponsonby - Western Park.

Come check live graf by Pest 5, Component, Trust Me, Flox, DT & Enforce One while Peter Mac, Plantmaster Grant, The Boil Up, Captain Midnight & Tuff Enchant, JC & MrMu and the Sandy Bay Social Club hold it down on the 1 & 2s.

There'll be stalls down there selling clothing, coffee & kai. Come check it, Shake & Bake -Saturday 18th March at Western Park, 12pm till 6pm. Watch out for the afterparty."

And Kanye West is still coming, even tho his U2 support slot is off.
So, U2 postpone their shows, but no official word on refunds or when/if the shows might happen. Bono channeling Johhny Rotten - tells 76,000 Kiwis - "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" Nasty.

The sound of Oscar
Have a listen, some soundtrack moments from the movies, to help with your Oscar picks.

My weekend highlight? Since you ask, watching Chris mixing up black doris plums, berry-flavoured ice cubes and vodka in the blender for some fine, fine vodka-plum slushies. And then we had roast pork and veges....

1.10pm... E-online has the red carpet live online, with Isaac Mizrahi asking questions of the stars. There he is telling Ang Lee he is a doll, and wishing him good luck.
