the tote -- melbourne, orstralia's long-lived music venue -- went tango uniform this past weekend for the usual stupid reasons. sounds like a place i would've felt at home. you can see vids of a protest rally held on the eve of its closure here and listen to the live-to-air broadcast of its last night here. when my fave local rawk dump went south back in 2007, i wrote a book about it. muso-scribe bill gibson will have his say on the tote's demise via the i-94 bar when craig the barman reopens for biz later this month.
