Bicicletta - Reenergized and Reopen

19/10/2011 by Luisa De Liseo

When Bicicletta opened in late 2010, it quickly gained a reputation for delicious, affordable and universally pleasing Italian fare. A creation of the owners of Pizza e Birra and Mille Vini in Sydney, it was a tried and tested business model that hit the ground running in Canberra, where it was located beside the already established Flint restaurant and Parlour wine bar. It didn’t take long for it to be considered among the best Italian dining in Canberra.

17/10/2011 by Daniel Taylor

Melbourne local and Australian hip-hop innovator Phrase returned to Canberra last Thursday as part of his Babylon tour. After two long weekends in a row, it seems Canberrans were all worn out, with a less than expected turn out. Supporting were The Owls and The Preachers, a surprisingly different warm up which suited Phrase’s new musical direction.


Interview: Pnau

12/10/2011 by Brigette McQuillan

Pnau are a pretty big deal now-a-days. They have four brilliant albums with a bunch of singles and a heap of international credit under their very heavy belts. These stage-dominating Sydney boys are not only making awesome tunes, they kick back with Elton John when he is not gallivanting around New York and work hard in the studio. In November, the London-based duo will return to play in their home country, including an appearance at Foreshore on November 26.

Before their national tour, we chatted with guitarist Pete Gillies from Sydney's youth pop-rock band New Empire. The four-piece has steadily climbed Aussie music charts, recently knocking The Beatles "1" from the top spot of the Australian iTunes best-sellers with their new album "Symmetry". "That was a true honour, and regardless of context, that was ridiculously awesome. Let's hope it stays up there," says Pete.

The burgers are better at Charlie Black

06/10/2011 by Jil Hogan

With the slogan, 'The burgers are better at Charlie Black,' plastered across the side of the Manuka venue, we couldn't help but be intrigued. Perched on the corner of Furneaux and Franklin Streets, Charlie Black is perfect for drinks, dining and people watching. The menu offers a selection of starters, pizzas, burgers, pastas and meat dishes. The meals are very reasonably priced, but the quality is still a notch above what you'd expect at a brasserie.
