January 6th 2014

Culture guide Banner

Back to work shouldn’t be this hard! As the sunburn fades and the last grains of sand flake lazily out of your swimsuit area it can be hard to find the motivation to get back out amongst it. 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…


Tuesday 7th :: Golden Age Cinema’s On A Mission From God

Head back to the eighties, back to Chicago and that ol’ Motown sound as Golden Age Cinema presents The Blues Brothers for tonight’s Golden Age Bargain. Featuring Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi at their comedic best and cameos from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, the list goes on…

Wednesday 8th :: Ponder the Imponderable

Tonight Alaska Projects brings you the launch of the third solo show by Sydney based photographer Samuel Hodge. His lo-fi photography is described as “a dreamy sex space where it’s always the moment before or the morning after (but without the regret and with an extra side of model)” This new body of work focusses portraiture, humour, fashion & longing.

Samuel’s also one of the nominees for Best Artist at the SMAC awards, and Alaska Projects are nominated for Remix the City
