Adelaide is a lively little city with something going on somewhere every night of the week from live bands and dance clubs to art-house film and avant-garde theatre. To find out what’s on check out The Guide in Thursday’s Advertiser, which has film and theatre listings and reviews. There’s also a thriving free press. The Adelaide Review (adelaidereview.com.au) is top of the culture stakes. This monthly covers the visual and performing arts, dance, film, literature, history, wine and food. It’s available from bookshops, some cafés and the tourist offices. Rip It Up (ripitup.com.au) is a gig listings magazine out every Thursday, with film, theatre, club and music reviews and interviews. Look for it in record stores, cafés and bars. db Magazine (dbmagazine.com.au), in the same vein as Rip It Up, is published every two weeks on Wednesdays. You’ll generally find it in music shops, cafés or bars.
