    Texas

    With some of the 90s biggest anthems to their name, UK hitmakers Texas are heading to Australia this December for the first time in their 28-year career. With a new album ‘Jump On Board’, including their new single ‘Let’s Work it Out’, the band continue to release pop classics nearly three decades after they first emerged on the scene with their seminal album ‘Southside’.

    An Audience With Paul Gascoigne

    Often referred to as the most naturally gifted English footballer of his generation, there can be no arguments that Paul Gascoigne is a true sporting icon. Known affectionately by his nickname, Gazza played with a smile on his face and the ball at his feet. His ability to run with the ball at speed and fend off tackle after tackle was a sight to behold. He had some huge career highlights including the famous Italia 90 World Cup run through to the semi finals and ultimately Gazza’s tears. Not forgetting the famous dental chair photos. It is generally considered true that England’s only two near misses since 1966 are both directly attributable to Paul Gascoigne’s immense cont  More info...

    The Minimalists – Less Is Now

    What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want? When they were twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus thought they had everything anyone could ever want. Until they didn’t want any of it anymore. When Joshua was blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage, and Ryan was faced with crippling debt and depression, they began questioning every aspect of the lives they had built for themselves. Then they discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism—and everything began to change. In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, Joshua  More info...
