Equine art final
ARNCLIFFE artist Craig Taylor has been chosen as a finalist in the worldwide Inglis Equine Art Prize. The winner will receive $18,000 at a gala function at the Inglis headquarters at Randwick next Thursday, August 9. It is perhaps no surprise that seven of the 34 works chosen for the finals are of Black Caviar. Taylor's painting shows French champion, Americain, in the 2011 Zipping Classic. The selected entries can be viewed at Inglis Newmarket, Young Street, Randwick, from 10am to 5pm on August 10, 11 and 12.
BUDDY Holly fans can watch a tribute at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre from 8pm tomorrow night. Starring in this two-hour show is Scot Robin, who has played Holly in the Australian stage production of Buddy and around the world. You can look forward to hearing more than 30 of Holly's hits including, of course, Peggy Sue, plus Raining in My Heart, Maybe Baby, and That'll Be the Day. Robin's performances around the world have been outstanding.
Tickets: $49.90/$46.90. Phone: 9521 8888.
Kath, Kim are back
CHANNEL Seven viewers will be aware that the Kath and Kim series is returning to television, and a new Kath and Kim movie is coming to a cinema near you. What Seven isn't saying is that the movie, called Kath & Kimderella, opens in cinemas in St George and the shire on Thursday, August 30.
Miike Snow thrills
SWEDISH indie pop band Miike Snow (pictured) packed out the Metro Theatre for their sell-out Sydney gig on Monday night. As smoke filled the stage with eerie effect, out came the evocative sounds that form the group's latest album, Happy To You. Fans' highlights? The ever-catchy Paddling Out, The Wave and encore-worthy, Animal. Fresh from the Splendour stage, Snow certainly did not disappoint.
