Massive Attack @ Royal Theatre

23/03/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

On a chilly Canberra night, 1400 Canberrans filed into the Royal Theatre in preparation for dark, cult 90’s trip hop outfit, Massive Attack. With the venue only filled to a quarter capacity, it was clear that only ‘hardcore’ fans had invested $120 in a ticket. Shouts of ‘Canberra you suck’ came from the audience, with the incredibly tame and sometimes mute collection of punters non-reactive.

Angus & Julia Stone @ ANU Bar

18/03/2010 by Steph Dagmar

Fresh from a nine-month break, brother and sister duo Angus & Julia Stone sang their way into many a heart on a sweaty Canberra evening. Performing for the first time in nine months, Angus and Julia showed no sign of cob-webs as they played songs from their new album Down the Way. Excited to see their new material, and a few old classics, the crowds filled ANU bar as support act Boy and Bear strummed thoughtfully and began to warm up the ANU canteen. They were a solid choice for support act, and eased the crowd into an acoustic and folk-tinged mood.

In the name of late nights and lost mornings, Urthboy is coming to your town on the Sneakquel Tour. Nominated for this year's Australian Music Prize (one of the only artists nominated twice) Urthboy is joined on stage by the incandescent Jane Tyrrell and DJ/producer Elgusto.

New Italian hot-spot hits mark

17/03/2010 by Canberra Critic

Locanda Italian Steakhouse at Rydges Lakeside is Canberra’s newest and most surprising destination for Canberra’s fine dining junkies. I use the word ‘surprising’ because you wouldn't necessarily expect one of the industry’s finest Italian restaurants to be located in a Canberra hotel, but that’s exactly where it is. I visited Locanda on what I thought would be a typically slow Wednesday Canberra night, but was pleased to find a buzz in the restaurant, with people chatting away in the relaxed setting.

Restaurant Review: Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse

09/03/2010 by Sarah Watt

On a busy Tuesday night, I slipped into the warm and inviting Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse. Upon entrance into Kingsleys, you may feel as though you’ve walked out of Bunda Street and into a classy cattle ranch (unusual thought I know). The warm timber tones and subtle lighting makes for an instant welcome.


Black Opal Fashions on the Field Review

09/03/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Black Opal 2010 was a muddy affair. But the persistent rain didn’t stop the show ponies from emerging in high heels and dainty headwear, in anticipation for the Myer Fashions on the Field competition. For the first race on the Canberra Autumn racing calendar, the Fashion's on the Field stage didn't see much of this season's trends, with only sprinklings of metallics, nudes and strong shoulders making a show. Instead, racegoers opted for traditional black and white in classic silhouettes, with leather gloves aplenty.
