Triple R Subscriber Screening - Moonlight

Thursday 19th January @ Cinema Nova, Carlton

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood, as he struggles to find his place in the world growing up in a rough neighbourhood of Miami.

A vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

With widespread critical acclaim including Golden Globe nominations for best picture and best actor, winner of four Gotham Awards, and New York Times’ “Best Movie of the Year”, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths.

Moonlight is in cinemas January 26th with advance screenings from January 20th to 22nd.

Weyes Blood

Weyes Blood

Friday 20th January @ Northcote Social Club, Northcote

Touring Melbourne for the first time in January in full band formation. Though Natalie Mering, who performs and records as Weyes Blood, chose to distort her project’s name (giving “Wise” an appropriately outré, olde feel) with a nod to the ocular (w’eyes), her entire output thus far has been an exercise in exploring the atemporal.

With guests Lost Animal + Poppongene

Friday 24th February @ Melbourne Zoo

Californian dream pop and indie-rock band Warpaint are playing Melbourne Zoo Twilights in 2017, supported by Brooklyn’s Big Thief.

Warpaint’s studio albums, including their newly released third album Heads Up (2016) – which The Age dubbed “album-of-the-year contender” – emphasize moody atmospheres: gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves. This will be Warpaint’s third time in Australia, and first since their 2014 slot on the national Laneway Festival.

Big Thief’s music is rooted in the songs of singer Adrianne Lenker, filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Beat called their debut album Masterpiece “an honest and disarming account of the pain that comes with the gradual erosion of innocence and love.”

The Specials

Saturday 11th March @ Melbourne Zoo

England’s legendary ska band The Specials are performing at Melbourne Zoo Twilights for a closing night party under the stars.

Formed in Coventry in 1977, The Specials are one of the most influential groups in UK musical history. They combine the angry, disaffected voice of punk with the wind-your-waist sensibility of ska and reggae to re-define pop music. The cornerstone of their reputation is their killer sweat-drenched live shows, and an attitude that walked like it talked.

Since the band re-formed in 2009, they have gone on to sell out countless shows around the world and perform at some of the most iconic festivals and events, including closing the Olympic Games Festival in Hyde Park.
