When the center of Hobart bursts at the seams with art, you know you're in the right place at the right time for Mona Foma. This Festival Of Music and Art was the most cultural start of my Tassie trip I could have wished for. There was eighties music as well as dub step dj's and lots of hipster things happening. The time span did pose a serious dilemma about how to style my hair. Spanish band Los Coronas made me dance my legs off, as did Pretty Lights at the shed party. There was an orchestra that played music for one of my favourite books of all times: 'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan. They made me shiver and melted my heart. And Australian band Graveyard Train knocked my socks off. Six men playing men's instruments just as they were born to do. I'm all about that.
