Ampersand Window

To coincide with the Ampersand launch we got the mag to dress our window and we just love the party lights!

Sunday, November 2, 2008


Please join us at Pigeon Ground this Thursday 6th of November for the launch of Ampersand, a new journal straight out of the rocking boat of Melbourne. Ampersand is a curiosity journal: ideas unfettered on pages without the distractions of fashion and pretension: a step towards better understanding the world through time travel, landscape architecture, erotic fiction, thunderstorms, literary conventions, fraud, audacity, flunkyism, biology, fiddle music, clubs and societies, out of print books, historical events, mental health, night, etymology and printing and spelling mistakes.

Free booze supplied by Cooks Lot and tucker supplied by The Falconer Cafe, Darlinghurst (zing!)

Performances by Eddie Sharp and Eden Falk! Standing around talking and drinking by You!

Please join us! From 6:00pm. Don't forget to check out the new Spring/Summer ranges of clothes and general goods, and fresh stock from Tim.

Pigeon ground is, and always will be YOUR ONE STOP OLD SCHOOL VARIETY SHOP!

We are part of Sydney Design Festival

Sydney Design Festival runs from 7-24 August and Pigeon Ground is proud to be involved in the 'There's a Hole in my Bucket' project.
The Project
100 bright yellow buckets will be introduced into the Sydney landscape, each of them rendered useless by a hole cut into their bottom. Since the buckets are no longer able to carry water and undertake their functional purpose, they will be used to signpost examples of design that in the photographers opinion, are flawed or counter-productive in some way.

There is no restriction on the content of the photographs, the only condition is that they must contain a bright yellow bucket with the identification number visible.
For inspiration check out -

The images wil be uploaded daily and a closing party on Mon 25th August will celebrate the project and award prizes for the most thought provoking and ingenious submissions.

So come in, grab a bucket at start shooting from the hip and highlight something that frustrates you about Sydney and the designed environment we live in.

Scientist Vs Mad Professor?

Who did better album covers and who's a nicer guy? Word on the street is the Scientist wins on both those counts. By a nose on the former and a country mile on the latter. Who made better dub? Well, that's still up for debate. They'll be battling that one out on the sound system at Pigeon Ground over the next few weeks (or until sold). They're very lucky King Tubby isn't in on this fight, as although he'd lose on the first 2 criteria, on account of his rubbish album covers and the fact that he's also dead (which disqualifies him from being nice or otherwise), his dub would easily blow those other two knob twiddlers away, but I digress...

There's lots more great dub, roots and rocksteady offerings doing battle in the "fresh stock" rack as of today. First in, best dressed...
