The Arts Centre Melbourne’s new Winter season begins this year on July 26. Running for three weeks, there will be over a dozen events featuring theatre, dance, puppetry, music and digital installations. The theme this year is Arts, science and technology. The Arts Centre chose the theme because: We look to science and technology to [...]
I collected the ticket stubs, I bought the t-shirts, I poured over the magazines that coincided with their tours. I don’t remember throwing these things away but they’re long gone and I’d probably be okay with that if my memory wasn’t fading away too. There are so many gigs, concerts and festivals that time has [...]
Originally conceived in Paris in 2002, White Night or Nuit Blanche is not translation for THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE!! but a dusk ’til dawn showcase of art and culture. Catching a train into an estimated crowd of 100,000 thousand people, only to discover it was closer to 300,000 thousand was a little eye-watering but [...]
I was lucky enough to catch Dave Grohl’s documentary on analog music studio, Sound City last night. Birthplace to recordings After the Gold Rush, Rumors and Nevermind – it’s a tribute to an iconic recording studio and a reflection on the changing face of the music industry. Grohl was supposedly inspired to make the film [...]
I haven’t been to a Big Day Out in 13 years but my mid-life crisis and I really enjoyed ourselves. There wasn’t much aggression, and I would gladly pay $165 dollars again if it results in twelve hours off from my kids. I read a guide to the Big Day Out for over-35s – I [...]
This Saturday I’ll be attending the Big Day Out in Melbourne and I’m frightened Aunty Em. The last Big Day Out I attended was in 1999 and things were already beginning to change. Fifty-two thousand people is a sold-out show now – that is a lot of bodies – and something tells me we’re not [...]
Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak – William Congreve Dear Music. Though I cannot play an instrument to save myself and my voice sounds like a cat being strangled – you complete me. Last night I was treated to a brilliant gig by Perfect Tripod [...]
If blogging gave me nothing but free tickets to art gigs in Melbourne, I’d be a happy clam. I love my home town and its penchant for weird and wonderful and hidden and tasty and hip. The summer series at the Arts Centre is currently home to some great shows. I’ll be stalking checking out [...]
As the year winds down to an end, please allow me to reflect on the moments of 2012 that went straight over my head: The Olympics Excellent Danny Boyle opening ceremony this is GREAT! Is it over yet? Peter Slipper When it comes to edible underwater creatures, mussels would have to be my favourite. I’d [...]
I recently came across an article in the Wall Street Journal entitled Dysfunctional Family Bingo where Psychologist Amy Johnson recommended a humourous version of bingo to help ease the family tensions inevitable on Christmas Day. My own family has a rich history of Christmas Day dramas. There have been relatives who’ve fallen out of trees [...]
