Briefs Close Encounters Theatre Review
Dreams of acceptance on their own terms with a blasting away of the traditional sense. The sense of burlesque being just for girls or the circus with all its tricks being defined by just one thing.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Movie Review
Solo of course refers to Han Solo, he of roughish charm and one liners. In early chapters, Harrison Ford made the role his own and now Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar! & Beautiful Creatures) gets the chance to put his own stamp on the role.

When Ehrenreich as Solo claims he is an outlaw, it’s a stretch to believe as per the actions that have come before.

The Presets touring Australia this June!
That album was certified triple platinum and won them six ARIA Awards in their homeland. By contrast, 2012’s critically acclaimed Pacifica was comparatively introspective but epic gigs around the world – from Glastonbury Festival and Coachella to Splendour In The Grass – forged the duo’s reputation as Australian electronic music trailblazers.
Continuing in this tradition, The Presets’ fourth album HI VIZ – which lands May 18 – delivers a ‘back to ...
