Top 10 Sydney Culture On this week 08/07/2018
Crawl out of your depressing beer-can fort, Sydney. It’s time to cram something other than mouldy pizza hut down your throat. You’re going cultural.
10) Top Dog Film Festival
Go anywhere without leaving your chair, and let your heart run free. But this time, you won’t have to block out the moans of your semi-obese dog you haven’t walked in 3 months. A little surround sound’ll shut him up.
9) Cat Cinema
10th July-12th Aug
Me-ow. And all the other sounds cats make that don’t sound remotely like that combination of syllables. Revel in the joys of investing in a feline over an infant child. There’ll be no petulant crying and infuriating gibberish to interrupt your film experience here. Just the occasional light fur-ball expulsion and skin laceration.
8) Bondi Winter Magic
The polar ice caps are melting. But we’ve kept our peckers up. And here’s how: Bondi’s giving us a little preview of the sea, sun, sand and ice fun we’ll be having thanks to the complete annihilation of the natural ecosystem!
Slicing through a big slab of ice on razor blades, hurling hardened rocks at your loved ones, sliding down a butt-paralysing slope, attempting to make light conversation last two full rotations on a giant ferris wheel and a feast of consumable flesh that’ll cozy up your arteries in no time. What more could you want?
11th July-14th Aug
Glittering, greasy, lusty, severely deformed and harbouring an exquisite penchant for vengeance; it’s that drunken night you spent deep frying gummy bears next to a naked stranger at 2am brought to operatic life by the genius lilt of an Italian virtuoso.
5) Starburst: Icons of Chinese Cinema
10th July-26th Aug
Some of cinema’s most delicate, lyrical and oft passionately violent and grotesque actresses are curling their way into the Art Gallery of New South Wales. And they’re not even charging admission.
4) Bastille Day Soiree
Liberté! Égalité! Fraternité! Alcohol! Lasers! Electro! We’re pretty sure that’s the direct translation.
3) Bay City Rollers feat. Les McKeown Tour
Tartan may be dead, but these former teen sensations aren’t. Well, mostly. Rest in peace, Alan Longmuir. Raise your glass; raise your kilt to the skyrocket man.
NAIDOC week is back. Time to pull your head out and stand up straight. And…maybe wash your hair. A full week of events; a full week to shake clean the etch-a-sketch of your conscience.
1) Scandinavian Film Festival
Scandal doesn’t even begin to cover it; Ogooglebar.
