If music and literature had a very cool baby, it would be A Rock & Roll Writers Festival

First thing’s first – rock and roll is so much more than a genre. Rock and roll is an attitude and a way of life that is built around pushing boundaries, sticking it to the man and generally kicking huge amounts of ass. It makes sense, then, that rock and roll forms the basis of one of Brisbane’s most exciting cultural events. Taking over the historic Old Museum for the April 1–2 weekend, A Rock & Roll Writers Festival celebrates and explores the intrinsic relationship between writing and music, utilising the smartest (and boldest) minds in the business. more

Botanical Bar & Kitchen brings a crisp approach to James Street dining

It’s been a big two years for the team at James Street’s QA Hotel as it undergoes a complete makeover. Reestablishing itself as a foodie powerhouse, the popular pub now boasts a few new additions. Following on from the opening of Farrier and the sprucing of the QA’s heritage elements, the sophisticated Botanical Bar & Kitchen has now arrived – sandwiched between the QA Hotel proper and the newly opened Sage Hotel. more

Surrender yourself to the sleek and sexy world of Film Noir

Global conflict is a pretty awful thing, but there’s at least one small positive we can take away from it – it makes for some pretty spectacular art. Born as the product of the Great Depression and the disillusionment of the post-war era, the genre of film noir has remained one of the most enduring in the cinematic universe. After all, what’s not to love about femme fatales, private eyes and all of the neon? From March 31 to May 21, GOMA’s Cinémathèque will take on the moody and broody classics for Film Noir, a program that celebrates the darker side of life. more

When cooking at home, making a mess is pretty much a part of the deal. You can’t make a decent meal without ending up with a few scraps, right?

If you have been feeling a little bit guilty for throwing away a good portion of your groceries each week, then read on. more
