Crystal’s Team Pick: Sydney Mardi Gras / GiRLTHING

My team pick is for the ladies of Sydney, however if you live elsewhere then a roadtrip is going to be well justified. Saturday February 27 is the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, the largest gay pride event in the world. If you’re in town and looking for a place to party after the parade, I have it on good authority that the girls who like girls can be found at GiRLTHING’s Mardi Gra party, an epic event hosted over 4 venues. I’m gonna be there. You know who else will be there? LADYHAWKE, bitches. Yeah that Ladyhawke. So who’s coming?

There so much more happening at this event than I’m letting on, so you should check out the full list of DJs and entertainers here. Tix are $32 and selling fast, so get on it!
