Event Recap - Maintaining the Rage with Frenzal Rhomb

18/02/2014 by Robbie Allison-Young

So…apparently punk is not dead… at least not in Canberra. The scene at UC’s Zierholz proved as much last Saturday night. As the rain fell hard and the idea of a fun night out seemed further and further out of reach. Instead, I found myself amongst the sea of unlikely revellers (I say unlikely due to Canberra’s tendency to avoid rainy nights out!) who turned up to the uni early, all keen to see veteran rockers Frenzal Rhomb return to the Territory and see how much they’ve aged.

Recap: The Kite String Tangle at Transit Bar

17/02/2014 by Carly Jade Devine

Transit Bar was filled to the brim last Thursday night. A sold out crowd packed the venue eager to see Brisbane’s alternative electronic artist and producer Danny Harley as his experimental solo project - The Kite String Tangle! The night started off with Sydney’s Nicole Millar, an amazing singer who brought us her sweet voice together with her DJ who injected electro sounds into the mix of her sweet yet quirky sound. She was amazing and reminded me a bit of both Lorde and Birdy!


Hitting the Mark - Benchmark Wine Bar

14/02/2014 by OutInCanberra

Bottles and glass pack the interior of Benchmark Wine Bar, a fantastic little space in the heart of the city that takes its wine more seriously than most. For the connoisseur, it’s difficult not to get excited by the range of wines on offer - and dream of a selection worthy of a place among the empty bottles that line the ‘trophy shelf’ along the Northbourne Avenue window.


Myer Face of Canberra Racing Contest - Heat 2

13/02/2014 by Carly Jade Devine

‘Wow!’ is the most appropriate word to describe last night, the second heat of the Myer Face of Canberra Racing competition held at Siren Bar & Restaurant in Gungahlin. This time we had 27 ladies show up and strut their stuff on the catwalk, each competing for a spot in the final. The girls, much like last week, were dressed in their best race-wear with matching accessories and perfectly primped hair and makeup. It is safe to say once again that our job, as judges, was very hard! How do we pick just eight?

Canberra is fortunate to have a number of truly special race days out at our own Thoroughbred Park. The next big event arrives on Sunday 9 March 2014 - with the $275,000 Seppelt Black Opal Stakes raced over 1200m as the feature of what looks like promising to be another fantastic party out at ‘T-Park’!
