The Jungle Giants 2015 Australian Tour
Out on Friday August 7, the new full-length from The Jungle Giants and the follow up to 2013’s ‘Learn To Exist’, is titled ‘Speakerzoid’.
“What’s a Speakerzoid?” I hear you ask.
It’s the result of misheard song lyrics courtesy of a friend of the band while they were enjoying the opening strains of Sonic Youth’s ‘Teenage Riot’. The band loved the made up word; it summed up the listening experience of the album so much it became the album title.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Movie Review
Thankfully such scepticism is unfounded as Ritchie's rebirth of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a solid cracker! It shows Ritchie back on key and looking like the kind of director who would be capable of pulling off something as cool and snappy as Lock Stock.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was conceived in the mid sixties as a kind of 007 for TV, indeed Ian Fleming himself was involved in the programme's conception. Its likeness to Connery-era Bond is clear and Ritchie does a superlative job in ...
Prize Fighter at La Boite
A co-production between Brisbane Festival and La Boite, Prize Fighter will transform the Roundhouse Theatre, Australia's only purpose-built theatre-in-the-round, into a spectacular boxing arena showcasing the story of Isa, a talented young Congolese boxer.
Played by Pacharo Mzembe, one of Queensland’s most talented young actors, Isa’s powerful left hook offers a new life in Australia, but as he prepares for the biggest fight of his career he is faced with his greatest opponent – ...
David Guetta – One Night in Melbourne
Last in the country for Stereosonic in 2013, Guetta’s stunning gigs are a sensory thrill with seven LED screens, huge projections, over 300 pyro hits on and off the stage, lasers, strobes and so much more. Prepare yourself Melbourne for the biggest dance event of the year.

Emma & the Hungry Truth – Feast on You at JWCOCA
The brainchild of internationally-acclaimed singer-songwriter Emma Dean, Emma & the Hungry Truth are a sight to behold when performing live. Their musicianship and camaraderie is only matched by their fierce stagecraft and otherworldly aesthetic.
Sonically, the band consists of piano, synth, drum kit, cello, electric guitar, violin and vocals. Group tribal drumming compounds their cutting-edge sound, which is coloured with obscure instruments including theremin, glockenspiel and clap ...
Fantastic Four Movie Review
Despite its incredibly successful Marvel brethren, this Fantastic Four is yet another dud, albeit a dud with a $200 million dollar budget.
The story is fantastically linear: we follow genius, Reed Richards, from childhood as he meets each of the characters who we know will become part of the Four as well as the guy we know is destined to be the villain, Victor von Doom (with a name like that, how could he not turn bad?).
Usually in an instance like this the structure of the film would ...

Ginger Meggs: Australia’s Favourite Boy Exhibition
Ginger Meggs first appeared in the Us fellers comic strip in Sydney’s Sunday Sun newspaper in 1921, and he and his gang – including girlfriend, Minnie Peters, and arch nemesis, Tiger Kelly – have kept us company ever since.
This mischievous Australian icon was created by James ‘Jimmy’ Bancks. With his instantly recognisable red hair, shorts and shoes, his larrikin charms and endless ability to get himself into and out of trouble, ‘Ginge’, as he was affectionately known, ...
Judy Strikes Back at JWCOCA
Asked about writing her autobiography, Judy Garland stated: “When you’ve lived the life I’ve lived, when you’ve loved and suffered, and been madly happy and desperately sad – well, that’s when you realise you’ll never be able to set it all down. Maybe you’d rather die first.”
And die she did. In 1969.
But now she’s finally done it, her autobiography is hot off the heavenly presses and she wants to share it with you! This is the come back to end all come backs. ...
