The Audreys @ The Abbey
The Audreys are a folk-rock band from Adelaide. You probably know them, they’ve released four albums, won a bunch of awards and toured all ’round the world. There are two of them. Taasha sings and plays tiny guitars and keyboards and Tristan plays normal-sized guitars and doesn’t sing. Sometimes, they tell goofy stories about when they used to be married. They don’t need an excuse to hit the road, but as it happens they want to celebrate the release of their 2014 album “‘Til My Tears Roll Away” on vinyl. Come celebrate with them, who knows what you’ll be in for…

COLIN HAY LIVE @ Canberra Theatre Centre
Colin takes the audience on a journey, through hilarious stories and songs from his extensive catalogue, sometimes straight down the main road, and sometimes taking the twists and turns of the road less travelled. You will laugh, you may shed a tear, but you will most certainly be more than entertained.
AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND TOUR – APRIL/MAY 2015
"This is not a rehearsal, this is show time, each and every moment, of each and every day. This hit me like a ton of bricks sometime around 1991, as I was sitting around my house, waiting for something to happen. Nothing did. I had to make it happen........" - Colin Hay.

On Wednesday night the air with thick – not with smoke, but thick with the excitement of a chicken wing challenge at Smoque in Civic. For the uninitiated, the Chicken Wing Challenge has been a hallmark of the highly successful American-inspired diner since it opened in 2012. All-in-all, some 300 people have sat down and asked themselves, “Can I eat 50 spicy, succulent, slow-cooked wings in just 30 minutes?” Of all those, only 14 have passed the test.
