Best of 2012 Countdown: Top 12 Music Videos.

The OzFest India Diaries: Part Ten - The final two BBQs and a farewell.

Having had a fair dose of laughter thanks to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival travelling roadshow, I headed to Shroom in New Delhi for the Second Aussie BBQ, which was part of a very jam packed final two days of my time in India. The show, in the futuristic surrounds of the venue - where we were introduced to the ‘upmarket’ side of Indian lifestyle - went very well by all indications. Especially considering this was the first time rock bands had performed in the dance oriented venue.

Our AU Review writers henceforth were polled on what they thought were the best films of 2012. What we get is a curious mix of action, drama, comedy and horror. All the elements of a greatly rich year for the film world.

Best of 2012 Countdown: Top 40 Songs - Part 1: 40-31

As we all start making our decisions for the tracks that will make up our votes for the Hottest 100, we had our contributors tell us their favourite tracks of 2012.

For the most part we'll be letting the music speak for itself...

Our 12 Favourite Local Tours of 2012

This country on this far end of the world has it’s own little vibrant scene, and if you are reading this from overseas, then the below tours is one good ‘ol reason to come on down here.
