There’s no better place to spend a pleasantly warm Sunday afternoon than St Kilda’s iconic Fitzroy Street, with its tall palm trees lining the pavement and refreshing breeze whispering in from the sea. Despite it being the end of the weekend, this Sunday just gone saw party-goers flocking to the trendy area in style for none other than Night Tripping – a fabulous extravaganza of Melbourne’s best Asian street-food, drinks and tunes.
More typically, when the phrase “fun for the whole family” is established, the “fun” hereafter mentioned normally equates to something entirely too toddler friendly. Here, you would not expect to see Mothers and Fathers, Grandparents and Grandchildren, couples and singles alike, all equally excited in anticipation.
Have you ever felt the fun immediately get sucked out of something? Maybe you’ve had a flashback to something awkward or doofy you did one time far after the fact, or maybe you’ve felt a sudden unwelcome ache of the body or the heart. It’s not a feeling anyone seeks out but it’s one that comes with the territory of life. But generally, unless you’re being a creeper and following your ex’s band around, this feeling stays away from the band room. Unfortunately, Saturday at the Northcote Social Club didn’t get this memo.

The Curtin looks as if it is a set piece from a movie focusing on the rise of Nick Cave and the Melbourne goth scene. The stage is framed by gold streamers, messy banners twisted up against each other. It makes the wall clock hidden in the corner seem even more out of place, as if a teeny tiny bit of my high school worked its way into the bandroom.
Filmmaking icon and independent cinema's favourite son Kevin Smith has had quite the career. He designed an entire universe based on his off the wall imagination; wrote, directed and starred in one of the most beloved independent films of all time and is worshipped by geeks the world over.
“Ballet is transformative. The moment our dancers step on stage, they become fearless and fantastic storytellers, where bodies move with witless grace and the wildest tales seem real. Audiences are taken to new worlds of sweeping movement, blossoming colour and spine tingling scores. Ballet creates a special place where time stands still and possibilities flourish.” - David McAllister
