A Clockwork Orange @ COFA
If you haven’t read the book yet, quickly do it now! We’ll wait…
You done now? Good, because Stanley Kubrick’s amazing 1971 film version is screening tomorrow night. Get over to the COFA Common Room (on the first floor of E block at COFA’s Paddington campus) at 6:30pm. Aside from the free screening there will also be mulled wine! The screening is taking place as part of UNSW’s annual Arts Week. You can check out what else is happening by downloading the program here.
Red Bull Thre3style
This competition has been making the rounds here and internationally. The Red Bull Thre3style finally lands in Sydney this Saturday with 8 of the states best DJs battling it out at Upstairs Beresford. This qualifier round will see each DJ performing a 15 minute set during which they must include least three different music genres. Sampology and Yacht Club DJs will also be there to keep the night rolling till late.
Women’s oppression! Racial segregation! The constant threat of nuclear war! Although the website claims that this weekend’s festival will be “the ultimate celebration of all things 1950s”, these things probably won’t feature too heavily at Rose Siedler House this Sunday, which is probably for the best. Instead you’ll be given full license to dress up in your fifties Sunday best and roam the grounds of one of Sydney’s most important architectural sites. The will be tours of the house, along with rockabilly dancers, fashion awards, car displays and a range of vintage collectors and dealers selling everything from clothes to kitchenware.
Tickets are $25/20, and there will be a courtesy bus to and from Turramurra station on the day.
