Theatre Review: Circus Oz presents "But Wait...There's More" - Under The Big Top, Melbourne (Performances until 12th July)

Hoards of patrons both young and old scrambled along Birrarung Marr on their way to the Circus Oz Big Top for its grand opening night! The foyer of the tent was packed to the brim as we weaved our way past the various indoor stalls. The smell of popcorn and hot jam donuts sailed through the air, as sequins adorned performers enthusiastically pranced around greeting guests.

Eating with the AU: The Bistro at The Village - St Kilda Road (Melbourne)

Those who live and work near the St Kilda Road precinct know that during winter, when the city is swathed by dark clouds and swamped by rain, outdoor revelry is near impossible. So if you’re longing for a homespun, welcoming refuge, then tiptoe beyond the Beer Garden to the heart of The Village where you will find The Bistro – a charming, old pub which offers the perfect recourse for those blustery Melbourne evenings.

Live Review: Jebediah + Bodyjar - The Corner Hotel, Melbourne (17.06.15)

Those kids from the 90's, Jebediah, are back. It's their 20th anniversary and it's time to party with one hell of a tour. To celebrate their first night in Melbourne, punk rockers Bodyjar are the opening act. They kick things off with a few songs from their 98 album, No Touch Red, before playing an assortment of tracks from Plastic Skies and Role Model. Loud and crunchy guitar riffs populate the set as Bodyjar fill the room with an energy that can only be relieved by breaking out into a skank. 'Too Drunk To Drive' brings back vivid memories of their 80's themed video clip and Adalita prancing about like a giant dork alongside a poker faced singer, Cam Baines. However it's 'Not The Same' and the cover of 'Hazy Shade of Winter' that truly demonstrates their punk prowess.

Theatre Review: Rocky Horror Picture Show - Melbourne Comedy Theatre (Performances until July 12th)

It was with much jubilation that I headed on down to Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre to see the one and only Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was opening night, and the auditorium was absolutely packed! The audience was what you would affectionately call an ‘excited bunch’ with chortling laughter reverberating around the theatre, and patrons practically jumping out of their seats with antici……pation!

Arts Feature: Behind the Scenes of the Circus Oz Big Top

It was a crisp morning as I approached the giant tent, looming on the horizon like a glorious castle. I moved with cautious steps, gaining momentum as my excitement grew. I was about to gain entry into the secret world of the Circus Oz Big Top, to go where only few had gone before. A preview of the magic and mystique that happens behind closed ‘doors’ awaited me, and I was keenly anticipating what would turn out to be a marvellous morning.

Eating with the AU: Woody.P - Flinders Lane (Melbourne)

Melbourne’s dynamic food precinct in Flinders Lane has received an exciting new addition to its Manhattan-style eateries and bars. Having quietly opened its doors in May, not even the chilly winter elements or the threat of rain could keep the steady flow of bourgeoisie from flocking to the official launch of Woody.P last week.
