Naughty By Nature @ Academy Nightclub

10/05/2011 by Jennifer Ralph

In case you haven’t noticed, there is currently a nineties pop culture revival going on. The savvy team at Academy Nightclub cottoned on to this fact and booked Grammy Award-winning American hip-hop trio, Naughty by Nature. I arrived at Academy at about 11:30pm and was surprised by the relatively empty club. Fast-forward an hour later and the club was almost filled to capacity, with fans anticipating the arrival of the main act.

Warehouse Music Festival Round

28/04/2011 by Grace Keyworth

In a move that had more than a few Canberrans confused, Kicks Entertainment moved Warehouse music festival from its usual winter time slot and stuck on the end of the worlds longest weekend. This had its benefits as the weather was warmer and the outside areas and stage were able to be enjoyed by everyone, but having it on the Tuesday didn’t give punters much time to recover for work.


Winter menu to impress @ Ellacure

28/04/2011 by Sarah Watt

One of my favourite things about Canberra is its seasons; the onset of winter shows in the colour of the leaves in the street and the change in flavours on the menus of some of Canberra’s best restaurants. One of these restaurants, nestled away in Bruce, is Ellacure and they have recently introduced their new winter menu to my absolute delight. I recently visited Ellacure with a girlfriend on a freezing Tuesday night and was immediately warmed by the cosy atmosphere, delightful staff and interesting winter menu options.


The Holidays @ Transit Bar

28/04/2011 by Grace Keyworth

The super long weekend found an aptly-named band pack out Transit bar on Saturday night. Hailing from Sydney, The Holidays stopped over to celebrate Easter with their Canberra fans on their Seven Million Mornings tour sold-out show. I arrived mid-way through Gold Field’s set, who have been supporting The Holidays throughout their tour, and was surprised at the level of energy that was on display by the young, hip and friendly crowd.
