Mojo Juju

To celebrate the release of the pulsing new single Think Twice, Mojo Juju (VIC) hits the stage for an incomparable live show. As unpredictable and dynamic as ever, Mojo Juju trades the sounds that have long defined her for some energising new urban flavours, marking another stop on a musical odyssey from the Bayou to the heaving Nuyorican clubs of the ‘60s and ‘70s and the humidity of a Harlem summer. Juju draws on a heady mix of break beats, funk hooks, and hi-sheen pop, all locked into a groove that lifts up Juju’s political, rapid-fire lyrics. This event is part of the 2017 Fremantle Festival.

British India Forgetting The Future Tour

Melbourne rock royalty British India release their 6th studio album ‘Forgetting the Future’ September 22nd, and will perform it live including lead single ‘Precious’ a few short weeks later at The Newport Hotel! Tickets will go on sale 9am Thursday 3rd August. The band has just revealed the visually arresting video for Precious, as well as announce a mammoth 35-date national tour. After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. ‘Forgetting The Future’ is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.” Lead single Precious is currently spinning on rotation at triple j. Throughout a remarkable 10 year career, British India have attained four Top 10 ARIA albums, seven entries into the Hottest 100 and their single I Can Make You Love Me is also accredited Gold in Australia. The band’s previous LP, ‘Nothing Touches Me’ featured popular singles, Suddenly and Wrong Direction which have collectively accumulated over 3 million Spotify streams.

5000 Poppies Project

2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the First World War. As part of commemorating this, the Australian War Memorial will be creating a stunning large scale installation of 60, 000 hand made poppies, carpeting the grounds for Remembrance Day. Each poppy will represent one life lost in World War I. Online group 5000 Poppies is leading the charge and has put a call out to skilled knitters and crocheters. We would like to help them to their goals! They currently have around 18,000- 20,000 already made but there is still a long way to go! A second project is planned to create 50, 000 lapel pins for the Victorian RSL club’s 2018 Anzac Day celebrations. Whilst they have already created 20,000 of these there is still another 30, 000 to make by April 2018. With these deadlines in mind, Workshop Freo and Coral and Cactus would like to invite you to get together and crochet for this cause. Join us on the first Wednesday evening of the month to smash out some poppies, have a chat and meet some like-minded crafters. Seasoned crocheters, come along with your hooks and your red yarn! Newbies are welcome as well! Cass and Maddy will be there to get you started. Kits to get you going will be available for purchase for $15.  This is a not for profit workshop. About the teachers: Cass and Maddy met as neighbours 6 years ago and bonded instantly over their love of crafting and crochet. After many a crafternoon, they decided to turn this crafty love into a business, blooming into their collective, Coral and Cactus at the beginning of 2017. Cass discovered a love for crochet whilst nursing her first kidlet and passed on her passion & knowledge of the craft to Maddy, teaching her to make her first granny square only 3 years ago. From that point on, Maddy was as hooked as Cass for making everything from blankets, to teddies, to jumpers and more & more…!

Young George Trash Dinner

On Wednesday 25th October Young George will host their first ever Trash Dinner. As part of head chef and co-owners, Melissa Palinkas and Susan Whelan’s drive to be environmentally conscious business owners, everything at the dinner will be made utilising scraps, left overs, by product catches, secondary produce & other bits and bobs that would normally be put in the bin on a day to day basis. “Our philosophy is to use every part of all produce that comes through our kitchen to reduce waste,” says Melissa. “We also want to help educate our customers that you can actually use the things they would normally put into their bins every day to create something amazing!” “When you look at the food wasted globally, and in Australia alone, your mind just boggles. One third of all food produced is lost or wasted - that’s around 1.3 billion tonnes of food and a cost of $940 billion annually to the global economy. Yet one in nine people do not have enough food to eat, that’s 793 million people who are undernourished!” “According to Oz Harvest if just one quarter of the food currently lost or wasted could be saved, it would be enough to feed 870 million hungry people.” The Trash Dinner follows Young George’s initiative to make their kitchen free of disposable plastic earlier this year. “It was a big investment for a small restaurant like ours, but we felt it important and worthwhile and it will actually save us in the long run,” says Susan. Tickets for the Trash Dinner are on sale now from Young George for $75 per ticket including a $10 donation to Oz Harvest for every ticket sold. Ticket includes one trash cocktail on arrival and 4 courses including canapés, entrée, main with shared side dishes and dessert. Call 08 6424 9500 or email to book.
