September 23rd 2013

Culture Guide Header

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…


Mon 23rd :: Get Cult with The Last of the V8 Interceptors

Monday nights at the Dendy are about reminiscing. Thinking back to a time when Mel Gibson just played slightly unhinged, dangerous characters on the big screen.
