A Bastard contemporary Harlem jazz club.
Plenty of Hoochie and Loads more coochie.
It creeps out like a shadow, Jumps and Jives like New York 1933, and then it wails like nothin' you ever heard before.
This ain't nostalgia folks, its sophisticated pandemonium.
Its dressed to the nines and keepin' in step.
Owen Pallett (formally Final Fantasy) opened the show. If you listen to him with your eyes closed you would swear that an orchestra would be playing, yet it’s just one man, a violin, a keyboard and a loop pedal. I won’t even bother describing how utterly beautiful his music is – just watch this (the sound quality is a bit iffy, but the atmosphere is sublime) and have a listen to this.
Then it was Sufjan’s turn. The Age of Adz show was like a sci-fi synth fused slow jam, lit by neon tape and glow sticks. The music was surreal, confusing, lengthy, bizarre, layered, luscious, chaotic, dark, moody and I found it impossible to sit still. I shifted and wiggled in my seat, desperate to dance, particularly when the balloons and confetti burst from the Opera House’s ceiling during the epically long song “Impossible soul”.

Australia Day is by far my favourite holiday; it leaves Christmas and New Year's for dust. This year was no different.
I would be more than happy to hang out with my mates poolside, eating lamingtons and guessing what song will be
number one in the hottest 100, but to get paid for it just puts icing on the cake.

When did Adidas become the bee's knees? I know Stella helped kick start the evolution from sloppy sweatshirts, but the latest Adidas SLVR range made me gasp with delight - it is perfectly pared back comfort in chic cuts.
I think I need to lock up my purse.
