I must hang my head in shame as I press each keystroke for this blog post due to guilt. The fact I haven’t given this party any Waves love, especially when its their one year anniversary just around the corner, is quite bad form on my behalf. So, to the hosts who can boast the most roast, Biscuit & Laila, I humbly apologise!
To keep in theme with the theme of the party, let the news reporting begin! Day Care was born on March 18, 2012. The hosts of the party are the dynamic duo Biscuit & Laila. Its a monthly Sunday day party. It takes place on third floor of the Carlton, otherwise known as the Hasti Bala Bar. Indoors and outdoors – there is a place for everyone. Countless of talented individuals have graced their presence at Day Care – Misha (PAM), Michael Kucyk (NIMH), Andee Frost (THDF), Roland Tings (100% Silk), Bayu & Kanzo (Puff Puff Pass), Roman Wafers (Internasjonal/Bamboo Musik), Tornado Wallace (ESP + more), Michael Ozone (ESP), Otologic (C-Grade), Bobby Boomerang (Cut Copy), Richard Kelly (Empty Sleeve), Matthew Brown, Dj Sweet Puff (Jez, top bloke), Zanzibar Chanel, .. OK there are heaps more – an all-star roster. What if you are hungry? Or even thirsty — don’t fret, its all sorted; plenty of drink and food specials. Parents, bring your little tykes as it is kid friendly! Free, what’s your excuse?
