As mentioned in Paper Mag:
Australian pop band Cub Sport, comprising queer married couple Tim Nelson and Sam Netterfield, Zoe Davis, and Dan Puusaari, have been following (and conquering) fear across the U.S. since dropping their self-titled third album earlier this year. While touring major cities, they have a chance to spread their message of radical self-acceptance and love to crowds both large and intimate.
The video "Limousine" premiered on PAPER on the 14th of May 2019. Featuring direction and styling by Tim Hardy and Kurt Johnson, who Nelson calls a "queer dream team." Nelson and company rock some ghostly makeup by Kate McWilliam, pop bottles, and open the sunroof of a moving limo. Super 8 filming adds an otherworldly touch to the visuals.
"It's an ode to deepening developments in love, sex and spirituality and the way I feel like they're all intertwined."
"I wrote 'Limousine' at a time when I was starting to open up about a bunch of things I'd never really said out loud before, a lot of which involved my sexuality — something I'd learned to feel ashamed of when I was growing up," Nelson says. "This song was inspired by that feeling of being completely exposed while I'm still figuring myself out and working through things. It's an ode to deepening developments in love, sex and spirituality and the way I feel like they're all intertwined. The closing section of this song feels like some sort of other-worldly rebirthing or shedding of a former-self and right from the first demo of this song, I envisioned a video that captures the heightened energy and other-worldly vibe that this song holds for me."

1. An independent outdoor music festival, Easter weekend, strictly limited tickets.
2. A three-day event dedicated to devoted music enthusiasts and artists whose only aim for the weekend will be to create a community of dancers whilst also providing a sojourn for the soul.
3. Carefully selected international guests within a specially selected rural location, will steer and sound out a platform for catharsis and freedom of expression by way of some solid thump – a warm and very inviting thump, a soulful thump.
4. Every aspect, from sound to setup will be thought out to ensure the festival is an all inclusive, environmentally neutral and a musically blissful affair.
Eg. "Dancing is an essential, elemental and a simply fundamental way of warming your Inner Varnika”

Wax’o Paradiso celebrated their fifth birthday with a big bang by throwing their first-ever charity ball. They rolled out the sticky red carpet for an evening of decadent debauchery and discotheque at the iconic Espy, in the freshly spruced up Gershwin Room.
Wax’o Paradiso presents the Met Galah - a tongue-in-cheek take on the black tie ball.
All proceeds from the evening were donated to the Dr Tracy Westerman Aboriginal Psychology Scholarship Program, a unique and exciting opportunity to invest in the future generations of Aboriginal psychologists working to make a difference in our most vulnerable Indigenous Communities. Congratulations to the boys and everyone involved for raising over $10k!
Everyone came dressed in their best with the dress code for the evening as black-tie and “birds of paradise”. Have a look for yourself through these fabulous photos I took on the night.
