BLISS N ESO

KICK OFF MASSIVE OUTDOOR TOUR
& ALBUM GOES PLATINUM


Bliss N Eso have kicked off their biggest ever tour in style with a huge opening show at Bathurst Showground and a thumping crowd of over 4,000 in Newcastle on Saturday night (12/4/14).




The Circus Under the Stars tour (Check it out here) sees the trio ship tonnes of state-of-the-art staging equipment across the country over a two month period, setting up outdoor stages in massive parks in sixteen cities. They are joined by two of the country’s biggest up-and-coming hip-hop artists; Melbourne’s Seth Sentry and Sydney’s Horrorshow, as well as cult American singer-songwriter Ceekay Jones who features on the trio’s hit single ‘My Life’.

The enormous tour hits Bliss N Eso's hometown of Sydney this Thursday night (Good Friday Eve) where they take over The Domain, one of the city’s most iconic outdoor locations and the former site of Homebake Festival. Alongside an entirely new set-list and incredible production, it will also be Sydney fans’ first opportunity to see the recently unveiled Bliss N Eso customised Kombi. Three years in the making, the Kombi has a couple of special features which are only unveiled in person.


Go behind the scenes on the van’s grand unveiling at Circus Under the Stars’ opening show here.



One of the highest selling Australian albums of the last year, the band's latest album Circus in the Sky (out now through Illusive) has now achieved Platinum sales status – their second release in a row to achieve the feat. The album has spawned a number of massive singles including ‘My Life’, ‘House of Dreams’ (the soundtrack to the AFL Finals), ‘Can’t Get Rid of This Feeling’ (feat. Daniel Merriweather) and ‘Act Your Age’ (feat. Bluejuice).

With tickets flying across the country, massive outdoor stages in every city and the biggest headline bill the genre has ever seen, this is shaping up to be one tour that will be talked about for years to come. Don’t miss out.

3RD ANNUAL SLIDE CAB-FEST

April 14th 2014 01:47
THIRD ANNUAL
SLIDE CABARET FESTIVAL


NEW VENUES, THE LATE NIGHT PIANO BAR AND CELEBRITIES GALORE. SYDNEY - IT'S ALL HAPPENING!

Monday 19th May - Saturday 31st May 2014



Slide Lounge, 41 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst and Pullman Hyde Park, 36 College Street Sydney.

Three Course Dinner and Show Packages from $70.00 7pm (pre purchased only)

Show Only Tickets from $30.00


The THIRD ANNUAL SLIDE CABARET FESTIVAL is the biggest and best yet with the addition of a new venue, a late night piano bar, an exciting variety of supporting artists and of course, the stellar line up of award winning local, national and international artists that Slide has proven can deliver to Sydney time and time again.

We are thrilled to announce the star of Ten’s WONDERLAND, BEN MINGAY as this year’s Festival Ambassador. Last year Ben played the role of ‘Buzz’ for Network 7’s final series of Packed to the Rafters, he also performed as a featured artist for Room 8’s spectacular 'Songs of James Bond'. In 2012, he starred as 'Zack Mayo' in the World Premiere of An Officer and A Gentleman, following a Sydney season as the infamous 'Tommy DeVito’ in the award winning musical Jersey Boys. Spend an evening with the mercurial Ben Mingay as he takes you on his unconventional journey through the entertainment industry!

Get your Pop, Rock and Soul food, a side of Musical Theatre and some Opera for dessert. From Bill Medley to Mozart, Joe Cocker to Carousel, this evening is guaranteed to satisfy your musical appetite.

Kicking off the festival on May 19 is the ACMF Music Trivia Fundraiser hosted by DICKO and CATHERINE ALCORN. ACMF, The Australian Children’s Music Foundation, passionately believes that no child should be deprived of access to a music education. Join your hosts and ACMF Ambassadors Guy Noble, Michael Cormick and Peter Northcott for a wonderful evening that will raise money for the ACMF... with special guest performances and celebrity appearances.

A fabulous night of laughs, trivia, food and goodwill, so get a table of friends together! ACMF - Changing young lives through music.

Award winning New York based cabaret artist KIM SMITH returns to Slide to present his brand new show ‘Nova Noir’ charting a dark and whimsical path through a neo-Weimar pop-fantasia of genre-bending pop and peculiar period treasures. Mining his debut album, Nova, Smith gives his own electropop originals a decadent 1920′s treatment, while re-imagining works by Weimar-era composers, and modern-day artists alike, including: Friedrich Hollaender, Cher, Kurt Weill, the Supremes, Hanns Eisler, and myriad glittering others.

Thanks to this years principle sponsor, The Pullman Hyde Park Hotel, festival goers can look forward to an entirely new concept and experience when International never was and washed-up celebrity UTA UBER KOOL JA comes to town. Like all fabulous divas, this is one comeback tour that will never end. In 2012, she had to increase capacity; such was the demand for her hotel room parties. So now, Uta is coming to Sydney baring all: she’ll dance for you; cry at you; laugh with you. Her intimate parties take place inside a premiere suite at The Pullman Hyde Park hotel on Fri 23, Sat 24, Fri 30 and Sat 31 May. Every inch of the room is Uta's stage, and the audience are her guests. Inspired by amazing women of the 20th and 21st century Uta Uber Kool Ja is a tongue-in-cheek fictional biography of Uta: an actor/feminist/pop star/artist/designer/exhibiti onist/rock star.

AVIGAIL HERMAN presents her brand new show ‘Good Girl/Bad Girl’; a modern day look at the seven deadly sins & heavenly virtues & was inspired by Audra Macdonald’s 2004 song cycle of the seven deadly sins. An eclectic array of songs & stories create a funny, poignant & sometimes startling evening. Through a series of characters & wonderful music written by the likes of Ricky Ian Gordon, Jeff Blumenkrantz, Stephen Flaherty & Lyn Ahrens , Stephen Sondheim, Annie Dinnerman, John Bucchino & Lance Horne to mention but a few, we investigate & ponder just how these sins & virtues instruct & influence our very existence or do they?

After a triumphant debut at Slide last year, London cabaret savant SPANKY returns to Slide with his award winning show Candice McQueen: Nasty - hyper-mythological cabaret and musical fable of an immortal Mister Sister named Candice. Set across time, and throughout the ages, Candice was already here when God created the Earth, she hung out with Mary in biblical Jerusalem, and River Phoenix lured her deep into the Hollywood maddened Los Angeles of the 1990’s! With a spectacular live soundtrack featuring music by the Indigo Girls, Color Me Badd, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Alanis Morrisette, All Saints and Roxette - played live onstage by British rock wunderkind, guitarist Chris Booroff (Kids Can’t Fly).

DEBORA KRIZAK (A Chorus Line, Sweet Charity) brings us cABBAret, the story of ABBA ‘de-flared’ and stripped naked. Behind the sickly sweet melodies of the some of the most successfully written pop songs, lay the sordid tales, the mystery and the genius behind the biggest super group of all time. Join Deborah as she takes you on this “Fabba-lous” musical journey, backed by some of the country’s best musicians- for a toe-tapping, musically enlightening and ‘tragically’ funny insight into the workings of one of the most memorable acts in history.

Just when you think you’d seen it all, THE BOLD AND THE MUSICAL comes along. Bitch fights and fisty cuffs, love triangles (squares and/or oblongs),wedding crashing ex-fiencees, transient amnesiac husbands and wives who rise from the dead. Aussie singer/songwriter Bianca Moon, and renowned Musical Director Anne-Maree McDonal are the women who write the music behind the worlds most watched TV soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, and now, we bring it to you live on stage! Be afraid. Be very afraid! Starring Barry Quin, Michael Cormick, Lesley Hancock, Debora Krizak, PJ Lane and Bianca Moon.

Every Wednesday to Friday night throughout the festival Slide will turn into the LATE NIGHT PIANO BAR when host DARREN MAPES takes over the stage. Ticket holders will be invited and encouraged to stick around after the headlining shows to embrace the old school New York piano bar style and sing along to their favourite tunes. They may even spot a celebrity guest!

Audiences will be treated to extra special entertainment this year as we add supporting artists to the roster including 2014 Cabaret Showcase Winner MELODY BECK, Cabaret Showcase finalist BRENDAN HAY, critically acclaimed Adelaide entertainer MATT GILBERTSON and award winning artist MICHAEL GRIFFITHS.

The Rise and Fall of LITTLE VOICE

April 5th 2014 01:33
Lane Cove Theatre Company presents

The Rise and Fall of LITTLE VOICE
by Jim Cartwright, directed by Christine Firkin

Finding your own voice can be magic…

Winner! Evening Standard Award and Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

“Utterly beguiling.” - London Daily Mail

“Entertainment at its best. Original, hilarious and hauntingly sad.”- Daily Telegraph



“We leave singing, fired by a glowing mixture of grit and innocence, magic, irony and truth.” - What's On

Blown fuses, real and metaphorical, punctuate the action with flashes of pent up energy in this acclaimed play presented this April by Lane Cove Theatre Co.

The diminutive heroine frequently plunges the dilapidated house she shares with her alcoholic mother into darkness by playing her dead father's records at a volume matched only by the soulful power of her vocal impressions.

Little Voice has a hidden talent: she can channel every iconic chanteuse from Judy Garland to Edith Piaf. She hides in her room, crooning and dreaming of love, while her disheveled mother mistakes a seedy agent's interest as affection rather than enthusiasm for the goldmine buried in her daughter's throat. This is an engaging fairy tale of despair, love and – finally - hope as LV struggles to find a voice of her own.

Directed by Christine Firkin, the all-star cast features Wendy Morton, Nick Bolton, Kevin Weir, Luke Reeves, Michelle Bellamy, Mark Reiss and Debbie Neilson as LV.

The strictly limited season of just five performances plays at the O’Kelley Drama Theatre of St Ignatius College, Riverview from 10 to 13 April. Don’t miss it!

Lane Cove Theatre Company presents The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
Thursday 10th to Saturday 12 April at 7.30pm plus Sat 12 and Sun 13 at 2pm
O'Kelley Drama Theatre - St Ignatius College Tambourine Bay Road, Riverview
Bookings: through MCA Ticketing on 1300 306 776 or online at mca-tix.com Tickets: $17 Adults / $14 concession. Discounts for groups of 10 or more.

The Paper Kites National Tour

March 27th 2014 03:53
The Paper Kites

Gearing up to hit the road on their huge all-ages national tour, Melbourne's much loved folk five-piece The Paper Kites announce supports Phebe Starr and Airling.

Sydney songstress Phebe Star has been turning heads across the country and beyond, drawing comparisons with the likes of Kate Bush from Noisey (USA) with her enthralling sound, caught somewhere in the web between Kraftwerk, Bjork and The Cure. In just the last eighteen months, she's drawn 40K iTunes Single Of The Week downloads for her breakout single Jurassica, had her video collaboration with Swedish textile artist Anna Moberg launched by Harper's Bazaar, and been hailed by New York/London blog heavyweight Neon Gold one to watch.



Airling (aka Hannah Shepherd joined by Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Graham Ritchie) bring otherworldly vocals, lush electronics and dreamlike beats to the Paper Kites' tour. Having collaborated with Tom Iansek (Big Scary), Airling is fresh off the release of her debut single, Ouroboros.



The Paper Kites have enjoyed a whirlwind six months since the release of their highly anticipated debut album, States. Having most recently released the video for the track Tenenbaum, the band has also recently embarked on a sold out headline tour of the USA and Canada as well as an illustrious support slot alongside Canadian singer-songwriter, City and Colour. Reigning in at #17 on the ARIA Charts, debut album States received a number of widespread accolades for sophomore single, Young.

Don't miss your chance to see The Paper Kites preforming their much-loved old, new, and most popular songs.

BAFTA Scholarship Programme

March 20th 2014 00:13
BAFTA UK SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
OPENS FOR APPLICATIONS

Includes the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros.

London, 19 March: The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is calling for applications to the BAFTA Scholarship Programme, which assists talented UK nationals in need of financial support to study a post-graduate course in film, television or games in the UK. Applications for the forthcoming academic year open today at BAFTAScholarships with a deadline of Monday 16 June.

Each BAFTA Scholar will receive up to £10,000 towards their course fees for a year, mentoring support from BAFTA members, and free access to BAFTA events around the UK. In return, the scholarship recipients will share their learning experiences on BAFTA Guru (bafta.org/guru), BAFTA’s online learning resource, and participate in future BAFTA outreach to young people.



For a second year, three students will each receive one of the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros. These scholarships, an integral element of Warner Bros. Creative Talent, Warner Bros.’ investment in UK creative industries’ skills and training, are awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA. The recipients will have their fees funded by Warner Bros. and will additionally receive a short funded work placement within the Warner Bros. group of companies, access to a Warner Bros. mentor, and invitations to a series of industry masterclasses.

Anne Morrison, Deputy Chair of BAFTA, and Chair of BAFTA’s Learning and Events Committee, said: “The BAFTA Scholarship Programme is fast becoming an important means by which talented individuals, who aren’t from the wealthiest backgrounds, can develop their skills and progress their careers. BAFTA’s support goes beyond the financial, with access to our industry events and one-to-one mentoring combining with their studies to give BAFTA Scholars a well-rounded experience. We want to attract the brightest and the best to our industries, so I encourage anyone with potential who is struggling to fund their studies to apply.”

Josh Berger CBE, President & Managing Director, Warner Bros. UK, Ireland & Spain, said: “This unique collaboration between BAFTA and Warner Bros. enables upcoming talent, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to get their first step into the creative industries. Our inaugural Prince William Scholars have already demonstrated to us what is possible when talented people are given access to opportunities and we encourage people who have the potential and commitment to pursue a career in the creative industries to apply.”

The BAFTA Scholarship Programme, which is now in its third year, is part of BAFTA’s charitable activity to support talented people at all stages of their career in film, television and games. The recipients will be selected by a panel of industry professionals following an open call to UK nationals applying for eligible UK courses.

The BAFTA Scholarship Programme has been made possible by the generous support of the Academy Circle, Kevin Burke, the Edwin Fox Foundation, the Galashan Trust, Evelina Girling, Linda Shire, the Lowy Mitchell Foundation, Rebecca Wang and Warner Bros.

The programme in the UK is part of BAFTA’s wider global scholarship activity, which this year sees the first BAFTA Scholarship Programme in Hong Kong, supported by The Yip Foundation, which is currently accepting applications from UK nationals wishing to study in Hong Kong at BAFTA-HKScholarships BAFTA Los Angeles has an active Scholarship Program offering financial support and mentorship to British students studying in the US; the BAFTA New York Media Studies Scholarship Program supports students pursuing media studies at undergraduate and graduate level institutions within the New York City area.

TINA ARENA THE RESET TOUR

March 11th 2014 00:58
TINA ARENA RETURNS
THE RESET TOUR!



Australian pop icon Tina Arena is set to return to our shores this August to embark on a national tour following the overwhelming success of her latest album, her first original English language release in 12 years, Reset.



Tina Arena is a name that is synonymous with Australian music and pop culture. Her voice has resonated throughout generations from her early days on Young Talent Time, to her coming of age debut album Strong as Steel, through to her incredible international success with sophomore album, ten times platinum Don't Ask and follow up multi-platinum In Deep, and then again with 2001's Just Me.

Tina's career boasts an incredible playbook of anthemic hits that have penetrated the Australian musical landscape and earned her both critical and commercial acclaim both at home and abroad. Hits like platinum selling I Need Your Body, Chains, Heaven Help My Heart, Sorrento Moon, Burn, Now I Can Dance and Symphony Of Life have established Tina as Australia's premier songstress having recently been voted the greatest Australian female singer of all time by her Australian musical peers.



Then there's her extraordinary parallel pop career in her adopted home of France, where she's sold over 4 million records and received that country's highest cultural honour, a Knighthood of the Order of National Merit - a first for any Australian artist.

Tina was also the first woman to win the ARIA Award for "Album of the Year", and was bestowed the honour of opening the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 and she has won several World Music Awards - there's also been her critically acclaimed stints as a music theatre star on the West End in London. And, more recently, her double platinum Songs of Love & Loss tribute albums and national symphonic tours. Away from music, in 2005, Tina became a mother to son Gabriel.

2013 marked Tina's triumphant return to the Australian charts with Reset being one of the highest selling Australian albums of year spending 3 months in the ARIA top 20, and earning a spot in News Limited's 'Top 20 Albums of the Year' list reconfirming Tina's unmistakeable ability to connect with Australian audiences. Described by News Limited's Cameron Adams as "... classy electro-pop ... modern but timeless ...", ABC radio called it "a landmark album - extraordinary" and the Sydney Morning Herald said "stylish and adult - all class"
You Set Fire to My Life, Reset All and Only Lonely are 3 songs from the album that have already charted and there are more to come.


Reset is Tina as we've not heard her before but at the same time doing what she does best.

2013 was also the year Tina had 7 albums and 10 singles simultaneously charting on iTunes after a high profile TV interview. She also released her anticipated biography "Now I Can Dance" last October and it's already in its 4th reprint.

With this latest album as the catalyst, Tina is embarking on the national Reset Tour this August and in keeping with the theme, Tina has created an exciting new show where she will bring to life the album and thrill audiences with hits from her entire career as they've never been seen before.

World-renowned director Bruce Ramus, who has designed and directed countless international live shows and events including U2, R.E.M., Bjork and David Bowie as well as some of television's biggest events - Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Awards and Super Bowl Halftime Shows - has also jumped on-board as Tina's co-creative director, and the results of this partnership are destined to be magical.

Tina said "I'm really excited that Australian audiences will be the first in the world to experience songs from Reset in a live environment. I'm so happy this album has connected with so many people and these songs are going to really come to life in this show."

Don't miss your chance to see Tina Arena light up the room on the Reset Tour when tickets go on sale from 2.00pm local time, Thursday March 20, 2014. The Reset album is available now through EMI Music Australia.

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

March 11th 2014 00:30
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
& NINE INCH NAILS


KICK OFF EPIC DOUBLE HEADLINE TOUR TO APPLAUSE AND ACCLAIM


Australia has confirmed yet again that they are Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age’s home away from home – the rock powerhouses kicked off their double headline tour at a packed Sydney’s Qantas Credit Union Arena to rapturous applause and adoration from fans and critics alike:



‘NIN brought an exhilarating mix of the pulverising industrial rock that first drew many of us to them…

“We’re trying to do something that none of us will ever forget, that's the point of tonight,” Homme said after leading his band through the squealing riffs and sultry groove of I Sat by the Ocean. Mission accomplished.’
– Sydney Morning Herald

‘It was billed as the Massive Double Headline tour and the combined alternative rock force of Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails proved to pack a mighty punch at the opening concert in Sydney last night.’ – The Daily Telegraph

March will see the pair of iconic rock bands touring in arenas throughout Australia and New Zealand, with Queens of the Stone Age wrapping up the month with a solo headline show at Hobart’s Odeon Theatre that sold out minutes after going on sale.

Having already performed more than thirty shows together and teamed up for several recordings over the years, the relationship between Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age is no secret and no surprise. Their dual mastery of the live stage is a force to be reckoned with and lucky ticketholders to this double headline show will be able to witness it firsthand.

Very limited tickets remain to what has been touted as one of the tours of the year – be quick to get your ticket, buckle up and enjoy the ride!
