Melbourne’s Cookin’ On 3 Burners Are Performing in Sydney This Week For One Night Only!


With the Kungs vs Cookin’ On 3 Burners version of their classic soul joint “This Girl” hitting number one in France, Germany and the UK, the band bring all the heat of their live show to Newtown Social.
In true Burners fashion, it’s set to be all live and full of vibe – with Ivan Khatchoyan keeping those drums tighter than a mosquito’s tweeter, Jake Mason making the Hammond swell and scream and Dan West twanging his guitar like a boss.

Ladies and Gentlemen: your funky feast awaits!

Beyoncé: Grown Woman


Queen Bey has surprised us once again. Not with another album (although I’ve heard some rumours here and there), but an alternative video to one of her hit songs.

The song itself, Grown Woman, was never released as an official track but if you were at any of her recent live shows, you would have heard her belt it out there or you would have seen the original video when you purchased her recently released self-titled album – the one that I still have on repeat.

Check out the *surprise* alternative video for ‘Grown Woman’ NOW.

Event Review: The Blue Room


Last week, ABSOLUT put the ‘ART’ into PARTY.

Sydney’s Goodgod was revamped and renewed into an entire new venue for one night for ABSOLUT’s The Blue Room.

Palatable cocktails and canapés were on offer and the good vibes did not slow down until well on into the night.

ABSOLUT invited a host of Sydney’s most artistic, influential and upbeat socialites to join in on all the party antics amongst the fashion, media and art industry’s elite and the lucky competition winners! 😉

Product Review: LAYERxlayer Micro Dot Pouch


Let’s face it. If you are looking for a bag today then there are a lot of factors to consider. Lots and lots of factors. And usually the main one is that you don’t want a bag that looks and feels the same as everyone else’s.

That’s where LAYERxlayer are different.

They have a number of items that are finely crafted and full of smart detailed design. Those details are exactly what sets their bags apart too. Each incorporate a number of domestically sourced materials like duck canvas, waxed canvas, leather, and denim with a few non-domestically sourced brass buckles and other metals to create the perfect palette, mixed in with a balance of colours and patterns.
