    Dog Eating Festival

    I was glad to hear this years Dog Eating Festival in Korea was cancelled, however the 15,000 at the food festival in China weren't so lucky. Please don't click on this link to view the photos if you are squeamish http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/171939/20110630/chinese-festival-dog-meat-industry-animal-abuse-15-000-dogs-slaughtered.htm#page0 I find it disgusting and barbaric. Yes I know, I still eat cow etc, but to see these poor dogs suffering is terrible:cry:

    Brisbane Festival 2011

    After the Winter Festival and the Ekka the next cab off the rank is the great Brisbane Festival to welcome in spring. As my programme arrived the other day I thought I would give a overview for those new to Brisbane so they don't miss the fun. Brisbane Festival runs for 3 weeks and starts this Saturday (3rd - 24th Sep). It is held in venues all over the city from Southbank, QPAC, Judith Wright Centre, Powerhouse, Metro Arts, King George Square etc etc...It contains all types and styles of performance from the world of dance, music, theatre, comedy etc. Looking at the programme I reckon there really is something for everyone. It starts with a big bang on Saturday with the massive Riverfire: Riverfire is huge, around 500,000 people attend, so get there really early to grab your spot. Some new surprises this year apparently. Amongst many other opening day events I noticed the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra will perform a free "lunchtime symphony" at 1pm and 3:30pm in the Roma Street Parklands that might be worth getting a picnic made up for. From Sunday night, in a first for Brisbane and Australia, a new of kind of choreographed laser and light show from the guys that did the Sydney Olympics will beam from the bridges and buildings of Brisbane. The Santos City of Lights spectacular will light up Brisbane every night for the 3 weeks: Apparently the best vantage point will be the Santos Lounge setup on the cultural forecourt (outside QPAC on the river). There is also going to be some new fangled light installation named The Liquid Interactive Light Scope to try: ("8 Xbox Kinects, with 500 LED Screens and an original soundtrack, with crowd based human interaction, all in a large scale environment – a 30metre tunnel") There is also other free stuff all around south bank and other venues around the city eg. the Princess Cruises Lawn at Little Stanley St for picnics with free movies and live music. The Wunder Bar will be open at QPAC from 8:30pm from Wed - Sat for "sassy soulstresses, Bohemian jazzmen, funked up folk singers, tango nuevo, stomping piano and swampy beats. Featuring the stunning set-piece from Wagner’s epic opera, The Ring Cycle, Wunder Bar is the official after-party of Brisbane Festival" Found the link to a bunch of free performances on at the Wunder Bar at QPAC: http://www.brisbanefestival.com.au/Free/Wunder-Bar The Courier Mail Spiegeltent will be a temporary Belgian cabaret club setup in King George Square for the duration of the festival with a host of performances. You can buy a discount pack of tickets to see multiple performances at the club. These sassy girls are the opening night party at the club. I love this stuff: [YOUTUBE]0Wybhr-SguY[/YOUTUBE] I'll post a few events I noticed in the programme that seem worth considering (amongst many others). You can see all of them at http://www.brisbanefestival.com.au/Default.aspx (Repost)

    Soundwave Festival - Perth

    Lineup | Soundwave Festival - Looks like an amazing line up, anyone else interested in going?
  9. Hi, due to some other commitments a few of my friends have dropped out so I have spare tickets to the We Love Sounds Festival, June 12th, Sydney. Underworld and Felix Da Housecat are playing plus loads more. Let me know if you're interested. Cheers, Joe.
  10. My partner and i have just emmigrated from the UK and have been in Melbourne nearly 3 weeks now and are looking for like minded people. Without wanting to turn this into some sort of lonely hearts ad .. I'm Craig, 32 (celebrated my birthday here on that grim hail stoney long weekend haha) originally from Marton in Middlesbrough, i'm a sonographer/radiographer and working for a company that has clinics all over Melbournes suburbs so can get about quite a bit. Into Family guy, American Dad all those sorts of shows. Steven's 27, from Washington, used to work for the Legal Aid back home and currently on the job hunt here. Into music / gigs and cinema. We're very much normal guys .. pretty much non scene / non camp. We lived in Newcastle Upon Tyne city centre for the past 3 years and always had friends and family over or somethign to do .. and as much as we are loving things down under and the way of life here, it is becoming a bit crap resorting to the telly after a day at work. We're currently living in North Melbourne so only 15 mins on a tram to the CBD. With the comedy festival on the horizon (24th March - 18th April) what better opportunity to get out and about and meet fellow (Brits .. or Aussies .. or whoever ..we really don't care as long as the comedy and company is good). Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2010 We're thinking about seeing; Beyond Reasonable Doubt Dave Jory Sarah Millican - Typical woman Julian Clary To name but a fe, haven't booked any tickets yet so we aren't yet limited by the date but gonnas book some soon .. also we are trying to budget ourselves as we have got to furnish out a rental in 2 weeks however could be up for some of the other events if anyone fancies it. Alternatively we're also going to next Sundays F1 Grand Prix and have general admission tickets so will be out and about the track for the race and probably on the lookout for a good viewing spot near a good (but no doubt overpriced) watering hole. Australian Grand Prix Have a good one and maybe see some of you soon. Craig / Steve
  11. I've found out that Sarah Millican will be back at this years Melbourne Comedy Festival, and wondered if anyone else wanted to go and see her? Last years show was brilliant I know its ages yet until the Festival, but am so excited about seeing her again... :biglaugh:
  12. From Times Online July 10, 2009 Foreign tourist killed at Pamplona bull festival. Sad or "one up" for the bulls.

    River Festival - Any Tips

    Hey It’s River Festival this weekend here in Brisbane. (Big fire and firework display over and along the Brisbane River.) Now it’s our first experience of this so I’m asking any of the established PIO Brisbanites for some tips on what happens?? I imagine the best point is around Eagle Street Pier or near to the Story Bridge??? As Lady RedAussie leaves everything to me to try and find out and organise and then blames me when it all goes wrong, :arghh: What ya reckon is best to do Brissy people? Probably best for some food and drink and watch the display, I’m told it starts around 5pm and runs on until about 8pm. Is that right? Best to go in on the City Cat in the afternoon, but does it still run if there’s an event on the river? All useful tips and advice greatly appreciated.
  15. :arghh::arghh: we paid 15 bucks for adults 10 for kids and it was a compleate let down!! i was expecting a lot more fun, stall for kids, more british things and i was sooooo dissapointed:daydreaming: why go to all the bother for a crap event! we left after 30 mins and people were leaving in droves!...whoever organised this event wants to do a degree in marketing and events management! very dissapointed xpat:policeman: and i wont be going again!
