Culture guide Banner

It’s hard to know what to do after work sometimes… when you’ve got The Z Factor and Please Date My Horribly Awkward Son doubling up on TV, how could you possibly consider heading back outside?! Luckily, we’re keeping our eyes out to bring you the best, brightest, and usually cheapest stuff on the Sydney arts and culture scene.

So when the lure of comfortable pants and reality TV threatens to maroon you on the shores of mediocrity, FBi’s culture guide has got you sorted…


Monday 2nd :: Final days of Spew Bag Art

Does high art make you want to spew? What about bad puns? Gemma O’Brien has found the solution and it’s been circling at 50,000 feet. The Sydney-based typographer, hand-letterer and illustrator has lovingly created a series of hand drawn and lettered spew bags featured weird, wild and wonderful pop-culture puns. They’re on display at UNM gallery for just a few more days. If you miss this you’ll be spewing!! *groan*
