Gold Coast library events

The Gold Coast library offers the perfect place for families holidaying on the coast when a little rain spoils your day.

Merry Indie Xmas

New York culture hub ANIMAL parodies the “indie Christmas cover” with spot-on results. The Christmas carol cover has become a predictable holiday treat, and not just from DMX. That’s why the fake album Merry Indie X-Mas — apart from the pitch-perfect stylistic homages — rings so true. Guitarist Adam Horn, of Brooklyn’s Bear Ceuse, created these covers, parodying the trademarks […]

No lights, no lycra, no fear
