Alice Creed Film Premier @ Dendy Canberra City

25/08/2010 by OutInCanberra FreeStuff

WIN TICKETS! On a suburban street, two masked men seize a young woman. They bind and gag her and take her to an abandoned, soundproofed apartment. She is Alice Creed, daughter of a millionaire. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic and his younger accomplice Danny, have worked out a meticulous plan. But Alice is not going to play the perfect victim – she’s not giving in without a fight. In a tense power-play of greed, duplicity and survival we discover that sometimes disappearances can be deceptive. "An ingenious British thriller." - The Times


The Cat Empire @ ANU Bar

25/08/2010 by Liam Budge

Cat Empire has done it again. They’ve reinforced their status as one of the greatest live acts in the country. They’ve proved their staying power in a fickle music industry, and they’ve proved that there will never be a substitute for live music. It was Canberra’s ANU Bar that was treated to a night of horn blazing and booty-shaking as the Empire released their new album Cinema to Canberran audiences.


Whitley @ The Maram

24/08/2010 by Carrie Dennes

The Maram crowd appeared very disengaged from opening act, shoegaze extraordinaire Chris Bolton (from Melbourne band Seagul’), who with his acoustic guitar played a support set that was full of potential, but resulted in being background music while the audience talked amongst themselves.

1927 Cocktail Lounge opens, East Row

24/08/2010 by OutInCanberra

Most nightclubbing Canberrans have visited Rolo’s pizza in the Sydney building for that 3am slice. Nestled between the Phoenix Pub and Iori Japanese Restaurant (some late night folk will be saying ‘oh is that what it’s called') Rolo’s pizza is no longer, making way for a new night spot, 1927 Cocktail Lounge. Don’t fret at the loss of pizza because 1927 owner, Dimitri Livas has ensured pizza in abundance at his new cocktail lounge.

Local pub menu a real winner

23/08/2010 by Luisa DeLiseo

I have to admit I was a little more than surprised when I found out I would be reviewing The Australian Bar & Restaurant. Perhaps like most Canberrans, I thought it nothing more than an inner-city watering hole, frequented mostly by tourists and inner city stragglers for the odd beer or two.
