One-act plays can often present a blessing or a curse. When done well, they can be concise, pacey and poignant, and a one-act can present an idea in a setting that’s best for it. Ride & Fourplay are two one act plays written by Sydney playwright Jane Bodi, with both stories focusing on love – particularly ideas of new love – and they tackle the theme from different angles.

Live Review: SAFIA - Factory Theatre, Sydney (10.09.15)

“Do you guys want an album?” Safia’s loved vocalist Ben Woolner screamed out to a sold out Factory Theatre. In reverse career mode, the Canberra three-piece is now a household name in Australian music with just five official singles. They brought stadium level dynamics to a medium-sized venue (read: strobe lights and moving visuals) and turned an local weeknight gig into something really memorable.

Live Review: Tkay Maidza - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (10.09.15)

Nearly two years ago, a young, Adelaide rapper called Tkay Maidza played a much-hyped show at the Beresford Hotel in Sydney. It was a smallish gig, the crowd mostly made up of curious onlookers, industry people, and fans that had jumped on board her after the release of her first single, "Brontosaurus". What quickly become apparent as the night wore on was that Maidza was anything but a one hit wonder, her rapid fire flow searing through the beats. It was the most exciting thing to come from Australian rap in years.

Festival of Dangerous Ideas Recap: Naomi Klein "Capitalism and the Climate" - Sydney Opera House (05.09.15)

“When you’re in a hole, stop digging.”

Author, filmmaker and activist Naomi Klein didn't shy away from her displeasure with capitalism at her Festival of Dangerous Ideas talk "Capitalism and the Climate".

Eating with the AU: Friday Lunch at The Devonshire - Surry Hills (Sydney)

The Devonshire in Surry Hills has long been a favourite for food critics and discerning diners alike, with the food awarded Chef Jeremy Bentley creates attracting constant, and consistent, acclaim. The hatted-restaurant remains modest, housed in a re-purposed terrace with nothing but a few stools out front facing some old apartments and the nearby Ward Park. It's certainly not a front you'd expect to find such a celebrated dining spot, but as soon as you walk through that door you are met with a stunning, classical restaurant with clothed tables and an air of elegance, balanced out with a quirky, playful feature wall that is fitted with several mismatched vintage mirrors.

Photo Gallery: Dave Graney 'n' The Coral Snakes - Newtown Social Club, Sydney (04.09.15)

Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes enthralled an enthusiastic crowd at a jam-packed Newtown Social Club. The fans were treated to a rendition of the 1993 breakthrough album, Night of the Wolverine, amongst other songs, as well as some highly entertaining banter. Jonathan Armstrong brings you these photos.
