This is Australian swing music. The hot sounds of gypsy swing mixed with element of New Orleans traditional jazz meld together is a hotpot of cold beers and sunshine to create a style of music that sounds both new and old yet always uniquely Australian.

Andy White — The Guilty & The Innocent

The government's falling down again. Right-wing discourse and extreme racist policies stalk the streets. Offshore islands are too often forgotten, and a border rips its way back through a far-off island as Britain casts off from its neighbours. Belfast-born, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Andy White's latest album The Guilty & The Innocent deals with all of this, offering up a poetry for these times, and the strength comes from sharing this experience in songs. Beauty out of chaos—growing up, that's what his Mum taught him to make. Music has been the soundtrack of Andy's life, of all of our lives. Come together at the Wesley Anne for the Australian launch of The Guilty & The Innocent. Andy will be playing songs from his back catalogue, packed full with his trademark lyrical wit, as well as debuting the new songs.

What drew them to the science they practice? What gets them out of bed in the morning? What started them on their journey of lifelong discovery? Why does the science matter to them?

‘The Sounds of Science’ is a chance to hear from a group of scientists about where it all began for them; their origin story. What stoked their interest and passion into a life long adventure in science?

Come to the beautiful Wesley Anne, grab a meal and a beverage and hear five scientists share their personal stories about science.
