I think there's a tendancy for punters to just not head out early, pushing the bands back further, it's a vicious cycle. I'm envious of you going to Melbourne, my teacher spent a long time there and says great things.
Yeah I think you're right. Seems a lot of people try to get all their drinking in before they leave home to save money, so start times get pushed back so the bar can make some money. Vicious cycle like you said.
