i  {heart} marrickville festival 23/10/11
...and so do about 29,000 other festy-goers (so says who, along with yours truly, languished in the 'blink and you'll miss it' summer tease, lapped up the visual feasts and live music on marrickville rd. 100 stalls - 75% local (poor effort, should have been 100 - just sayin'!) of food, art, fashion + design were complemented with wham bam slam poetry, wicked live tunes + sexy dance routines.
