Marvel will celebrate the 80th-year milestone of Marvel Comics this year with a free exhibition of iconic superhero artwork at Melbourne Central next to the iconic Shot Tower. The exhibition will honour the iconic characters and stories across every decade of Marvel’s rich history, from the early years as Timely Comics, to the latest adventures in the Marvel Universe fans know today.

Nocturnal

Following a string of successful past events, I was excited to attend the Melbourne Museum’s monthly live music event, Nocturnal.This month, as is fitting for the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Nocturnalput on an all jazz setlist. Entering the spacious atrium, my friends and I found the occasion to be in full-swing. Melodic echoes of beat boxing and vocal reproductions rang out as we wove through the colourful crowd. As with the previous events, there was a whimsical array of lights projected onto the ceiling and bouncing off every shined surface. What impressed me wasn’t merely the talent of the acts but also their adaptability. The entrance of the Melbourne Museum is (undeniably) a peculiar space for live music, with its mezzanine floor, and glassy, modern architecture.

There were no acoustic knockbacks or audio mishaps, but instead a chorus of perfected sound and colour bringing another unique set of experiences to life. …
