Starfish Hill @ The Paris Crash, ANU Bar

08/09/2010 by Steph Dagmar

Last Friday night the ANU Bar opened its doors to one of Canberra's finest emerging bands, Starfish Hill. Having just returned from recording at Sydney's Maniac and Glebe studios, the band was well rehearsed and it showed as they performed to a modest Canberran audience. Led by engaging front-man Tim Dyer, Starfish Hill performed without lead guitarist Brendan Anderson. Despite missing Anderson, there was not a noticeable lack of sound or energy, especially with the solidity of the guitar work of Tim Dyer.


New Urban venture raises the bar

08/09/2010 by Luisa DeLiseo

With all the hype and speculation that surrounds the opening of a new Canberra eatery in a hot spot such as Manuka, I could hardly contain myself as I leapt towards the big black doors of Urban Pantry. It isn't solely a dinner venue, nor is it simply a cafe. Urban pantry is a concept, a space of versatility amongst the inner south cafe scene. I’m told that from the early hours of the morning, the pantry swings into action with the daily delivery of Sonoma organic sourdough fresh from Sydney, which is used on the menu but also on sale to diners.

Angus & Julia Stone @ Llewellyn Hall

03/09/2010 by Steph Dagmar

It was a magical evening at the Llewellyn Hall as the enchanting Angus and Julia Stone stopped by to impart their folk wizardry on the audience. It has only been six months since Angus and Julia made the somewhat misguided decision to play at the ANU bar. This time around their venue choice was more informed, and the Australian National University's Llewellyn hall the perfect setting.

Local designer, 'a Little Mad Hatter'

03/09/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Canberra student and fairytale lover, Una Park, likes little hats. Driven by the excitement of the Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Una dreamed up her own way to pay homage to the fairytales she loves so dearly, creating Little Mad Hatters. “I have always been dreaming of creating something unique and beautiful, and suddenly thought - mini hats!” Little Mad Hatters offer beautiful millinery in playful colour concepts and adorable styles, inspired by years of hat-watching.


Headspace 10: Self/reflections

03/09/2010 by OutInCanberra

Headspace 10: Self/reflections is a national secondary school student art exhibition. We invited school based art educators from all states and territories to work with their secondary school level students to explore the Headspace 10 theme, Self/reflections, through portraiture. The work could be in any media and can explore the possibilities of portraiture in the broadest sense. Works from schools from Years 7/8 through to Year 12 were submitted for consideration, by a panel, for inclusion in the exhibition.
