Star Scene: Adam Ackerman ~ SORORITY NOISE

Review Scene: Shonen Knife

September 28, 2017 Maryanne Window

Music and fashion were the passions at The National Gallery of Victoria last Friday night. The fashion was courtesy of Christian Dior and the music from Japanese power pop trio Shonen Knife. Whilst big in Osaka indie rock circles since forming in 1981, they gained attention on the world scene after releasing albums on K Records and Sub Pop in the USA in the late ’80s.

I use a mini scoop to shape the mix, that way they all end up a uniform shape and size. […]

Pop-up Globe, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, Shakespeare’s theatre, the second Globe, is ready for action … are you?
