Governments all across the world have a lot to deal with at the moment. There's a global pandemic going on, and a lot of resources are going into that.
However, one member of Victoria's Department of Premier and Cabinet has found a new issue to deal with - updating Modern Baseball's Wikipedia page. Modern Baseball were a great emo/pop-punk band, but as far as we know, they've never had anything to do with the Victorian Government.
Twitter account @AussieParlEdits tracks any Wikipedia changes that come from within Australian Government buildings. They recently picked up on someone editing the Modern Baseball page, editing in details about the band's first concert,. The band's first gig was held at "The Michael Jordan House", aka their share house near Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The band's music video for The Weekend was filmed in various rooms of The Michael Jordan house, so named because, according to the Wikipedia page, "The price of entry [to a show there] was either $3 or a picture of Michael Jordan". This led to heaps of photos of Michael Jordan in the house.
The Wikipedia user in question has also made edits on the Wikipedia page for Modern Baseball member Jake Ewald's solo project, Slaughter Beach, Dog, as well as the page for American Literature professor Ann Charters. We're not quite sure how that last one connects to Modern Baseball, but it's interesting nonetheless.
The IP address linked to the changes is connected with the Cenitex website. Cenitex "brings together the best technology and the best people to keep the Victorian Government operating, connected and working for the community 24/7." They also have a killer taste in music, apparently.
Whoever in the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet is behind these edits, we salute you. We just have one question - are we going to see you at a show soon?
