Swedish Pop "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

One of the saddest moments of my trip to Stockholm earlier this year was the discovery Victorias Bar had closed down. I had been there on many occasions, with many fond memories of their schlager nights. It was there, I discovered the band, Hall hela pressen, seen here performing with one of the members of legendary Swedish band, Blond, and with Andres Esteche who was an entrant in Melodifestivalen.

As I wrote a few years ago

Theyre a covers-band specialising in Swedish pop songs, particularly Swedish Eurovision contenders, from the last twenty or thirty years. The two guys who front the band obviously really love the songs, as they sing them with large amounts of passion and enthusiasm. And a sense of fun, too, I suspect. The audience really loves the music too, and as they dance and sing along to every single song

While the schlager nights continued until earlier this year, the band moved on. Im not sure what happened to the bald guy, but the dark haired guy, Mikael Landby, went on to be part of a group which entered Melodifestivalen in 2014. A couple of years ago when I was in Stockholm I went up to him and asked for a photograph. He seemed slightly bemused at the nameless bloke from Australia, who knew about his musical career, but he obliged, nonetheless.

Hall hela pressen ...

Eat your fruit and vegetables by Akira healthy international students blog

As a runner we need to eat our fruits and vegetables for our health. But where do we find them for cheap?

InstagramCapture_04aabebe-7d60-462c-a356-2e57776186ae

Eating your fruit and vegetables every day is important and it is easy to incorporate them into your meals. In Melbourne we have many markets in which you can shop for produce and produce is as little as $0.99 at the Queen Victoria Market. Melbourne Uni has their farmers markets every Wednesday from 10:30am-2:30pm. They sell lots of fresh fruit and veg and some of the traders might be happy to show you how to cook with them.

If you like a lot of convenience, the universities will have some sort of food co-op or organic shop which sells meals made with lots of veggie love. These are your conven...

Why alcohol should be limited on flights healthy international students blog

There has been a lot of debate on why alcohol should be limited on flights. We are here to talk about this issue as it has been a problem for some people.

 

1Shot_20170907_183823This is what a standard glass looks like compared to the huge bottle

 

Australia has responsible service of alcohol laws to stop people from being drunk in a public place. Well a plane is no different.

It is clear that a standard small glass is about 20-200 calories depending on what you drink. Most of the time alcohol is dehydrating.

Earlier that year there were many instances where people abuse alcohol. Many people drink before their flight having to sit in the lounge or the airport waiting for their flight. In the First and Business class lounges there is alcohol being served and people just help themselves. There is no bar attendant there to pour the drinks. In Business and first class, alcohol is served as a welcome drink and then during their me...

Health and the media healthy international students blog

I wanted to talk about this topic as it affects many people and it is one of my assignment topics for an online course that I am doing.

InstagramCapture_4d8cfcb9-f558-4769-877a-0bbf02bec2a8

Health has been featured a lot in the mainstream media and there are a lot of findings online. But some of them are a scam. The diet ads online are a scam.

Many young people spend their time online looking for health information instead of going to see a doctor. According to the Ted talk, about 90% of people look for information online. But some of that information can be wrong. A lot of things on the web can be wrong.

Too much time spent on social media can be damaging a young persons health.  Young people should spend time outdoors and be socialising rather than indoors and being unhappy with the way that...

3 Songs for 3CR "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

3 Songs for 3CR - Nordanlaat

Each year The Boite and Music Sans Frontieres invite musicians and singers to donate 3 songs, in an acoustic concert at The Boite World Music Cafe, 1 Mark Street, North Fitzroy. Each year its a spectacularly creative and entertaining night of music that raises money for the 3CR Radiothon. In a year when significant music programs and broadcasters have been cut from national radio, the importance of shows like Music Sans Frontieres on broadcasters like 3CR cannot be overstated. It becomes harder and harder for local musicians to get a hearing! 3 Songs for 3CR is an opportunity to show support and ensure the healthy, ongoing life of Music Sans Frontieres on 3CR. Head here for more information and bookings.

Television City "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Bendigo Street, Richmond runs from behind the local Officeworks down to the busy hubbub of Swan Street.

The houses are mostly from the 60s and 70s, and look well kept. At the top of the street is a community garden, and about half way along, at number 22, a substantial red brick factory complex, which has been renovated and turned into apartments. There are a couple of upmarket cafes, and a swanky looking bar.

It's the very picture of successful, hip, inner city Melbourne.


It's hard to believe, visiting today, that this street has had other lives; that it was once part of the industrial heartland of the city, that pianos and baked beans were manufactured here. That, even more astoundingly, this street even has a glamorous past, and was a second home to many local celebrities. But some embossed lettering that remains on the re-modeled factory frontage confirms this unlikely history for us.  It reads: Television City.

But our story doesn't start in the age of television. Instead, it starts in  eastern Europe.

Hugo Wertheim
Hugo Wertheim was born in Lispenhausen, Germany, in 1854. The son of a successful businessman, who himself came from a merchant family, Wertheim came to Melbourne in 1875 to make his fortune. He took a junior position with his father's cousin, a wealthy manufacturer of sewing machines, and soon established himself as har...

The Morris Ward Combo "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Jack is the only musician in the Festival older than Wayne Shorter. He began his career in the back row of the massed Trombones of the Royal Airforce. This fearsome outfit was known to descend shrieking like banshees on an unsuspecting populace armed only with 86of brass pipe each, and blow the bejaysus out of a wide range of unsuitable big band pieces.

Once brought under control due to the post-war valve oil shortage, Jack was shipped out to New Zealand or Sydney or both, and continued a remarkable career.

The sly old dog has now assembled the likes of Izzo (piano) Brunton (trumpet) Chalmers (saxophone) and Andy Moon (double bass, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) into a hot band.

Old age and treachery (Jack), combined with youthful enthusiasm(everyone else), will be ripping it up at the Faulder Watson Hall, Sunday 3.00pm, and then at the Cumberland at 9.00pm not to be missed!

Melodies and music of Cole Porter & Gershwin. Throw in a taste for Latin Rhythms with a little Fats Waller on the side, and you have the beginnings of a passionate dish to be heard savoured. I am now fortunately able to travel the World singing Jazz in Umbria Italy, Melbourne and Darwin. Born in Melbourne& studied Music at the University of Melbourne Melba Conservatorium. I had a previous life in TV and Theatre, and taught music & drama at International schools in London & Bangkok. I am now turned full circle and have been reborn as a Jazz Singer of sorts.

The Bridge Hotel "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Shes back! The Bridge Hotel has reopened. Deep in the heart of the Goldfields cool country, Castlemaine, the beautiful 1860s pub has swung open her heavy wooden doors once again. Our motto Keep it simple, fresh, approachable, with just a touch o fancy

Not their first rodeo, new owners Mace Williams and Catherine Fletcher (formerly Grace Darling, Strange Wolf, Hells Kitchen: Melbourne & Jealous Lovers: Bali) have tarted up the ol gal, with a lick o fresh paint, new bar-top and some slick new joinery to restore the pubs history and magnificence. Keeping the bones, theyve crafted a fresh but well-trodden patina, add to this a sunny beer garden, a veggie patch and a locally re-homed beehive and youve got a recipe for some good country vibes.

Nestled amongst overflowing grapevines and with a badass view to the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, the Bridge entices punters with cold beer, live music and top-notch nosh. Despite her pretty looks this hotel aint no damsel; shes a rough-riding country belle with city flair.

Want local beer? Come get it. A classic cocktail? With pleasure. How about chowing down on some Nashville Spicy Chicken Wings, or Southern Pulled Pork, while listening to an indie/country soundtrack? Hank Williams coming right up. The Bridge heralds a return to the democracy of drinking: good ol basics and local wineries serving up their best drops at reasonable prices with pots and pints of BLOKE house beer poured from a tap with a rustic saw-handle.

With straight-up brews and something for the more adventurous, this is a space for buckaroos, bull-riders and babes alike. Fresh, locally sourced produce stars in classic, not-too-fussy dishes. The menu includes free-range pork belly and salads picked from the garden by local chef wunderkind, Luke Hards. So leave your guns at home (no parole), grab your Stetson and Martin D-28, jump on the train with a fellow traveller and some unfinished, hand-written lyrics, and head north west to The Bridge Hotel.

The Chewton Town Hall "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

A gorgeous intimate performance space, the Chewton Town Hall is a substantially intact and rare example of a small town hall from the Victorian gold rush period of the 1850s. Possibly the smallest intact Town Hall in Victoria?

It will be buzzing during the festival with a limited bar set-up and fabulous home-crafted artisan pies, cakes, and tea and coffee provided by Honky Tonks of Castlemaine.

The Town Hall was built in 1858 as a community hall in the centre of the rapidly developing Chewton township, and served as the meeting room of the Chewton Borough Council from 1861. In March 1997 the Town Hall building, the similarly historic Post Office next door and Ellery Park were handed over to the local Chewton community in recognition of the role this precinct plays in the life of the town.

The hall has undergone a major restoration by the Chewton Domain Society thanks to a state government grant for restoration works in 2013, and continues to be a central part of Chewton community life for the past 160 years.

Check out the relocated portable police lock up right next door.

The Miles Nicel Quartet "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

The Miles Nicel Quartet evolved from a chance meeting of guitarist Peter Ryan and bassist Steve Nicel at a Melbourne jam session one Sunday afternoon late last year.

Peter from Melbourne and Steve from Eurora starting playing together and sharing their musical expertise. This developed into the basis of a band and Steve co-opted his son Miles to play drums and Peter talked his mate Colin Garrett (Tenor Saxophone) to join yet another band. With weekly rehearsals the band soon built up a sizable repertoire of jazz standards and Peter Ryan originals to be presented at the Castlemaine Jazz Festival.
