Tori Amos w/ Ray Mann @ Canberra Theatre Centre

12/11/2009 by Liam Budge

It was a peculiar night at the Canberra Theatre as many gathered to watch Grammy-nominated Tori Amos. Although, as the audience witnessed a minimalist performance, they could not have felt anything but cheated by an underwhelming concert. Supporting Amos, was Sydney musician Ray Mann. Having recently seen Ray Mann Three at Transit, it was interesting to see Ray Mann removed from his usual musical backdrop.

Restaurant Review: Ostani Restaurant & Bar

12/11/2009 by Sarah Watt

The closing of Hotel Realm’s ‘Bacchus Bar’ happened quickly and quietly... almost as quickly and quietly, Canberra has been given a fantastic new, modern eatery/bar in its place. Ostani Lounge Bar & Restaurant opened a month ago and has already gained a strong following. I visited Ostani on a Friday at lunchtime and I was surprised to see many of the indoor and outdoor tables packed with a variety of diners; a boisterous table of ladies lunching, business people privately seated in booths and couples gazing at one another across the table.

Crayon Fields w/ Jonny Telafone @ Bar32

11/11/2009 by Liam Budge

Don’t get me wrong, I love experimental music. I love music that tests the perceptions and ears of a listener. I love music that subverts convention, and twists popular conceptions. But what I don’t love is pointless noise. In an attempt to experiment, and present music in an mc-style delivery, Jonny Telafone failed both musically and in any attempts to entertain. Unsurprisingly to the audience, he would have also failed a police sobriety test.

02/11/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Organisers of the sold-out inaugural Catwalk Hairdressing Event are delighted that the show surpassed expectations to raise more than $40,000 for Breast Cancer Research, last Saturday night. The event was a unique concept, with more than 10 local hair salons joining forces in a non-competitive format, all for a good cause. Organising committee member, Sandra Leemhuis is excited about the success of the event, and looking towards 2010 to do it all again.
