17/11/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Showcasing the work of five emerging artists, play_pause_repeat_ explores ideas of movement, body and digital manipulation in the context of time-based mediums. The works featured are designed to stretch the potential of the human body, investigate the position of the body in the digital age and explore the merge of man and machine. Through utilising and mimicking digital and computer technologies (such as file manipulation, torrent downloading and youtube) we are embracing the prospects these technologies give us.

The Australian

12/11/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Owner of the new city pub, Jason Graham puts it simply; The Australian is a good ol' fashioned pub. "There are so many cocktail bars in Canberra we wanted to do something more laid back, based on good beer and good food." The Australian launched last week, occupying the city centre space formally home to Woodstock Pizzeria. Not just your run of the mill pub, inside you'll find a full restaurant and up-stairs Sports Bar. The Australian aims to project the 'great Australian dream' with 44 gallon drums-come-furniture and other outback inspired décor.

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.
