The Null Device

Quelle surprise: A community consortium's bid to take over the Esplanade Hotel, the famously grungy St Kilda band venue, has been rejected, and the hotel's owners are now looking for a commercial buyer. Which probably means it will be cleaned up and renovated into a more upmarket venue (gotta capitalise on those million-dollar views of the bay), where moneyed stockbrokers and football identities can sip their chardonnay in style.
