Weekend of entertainment
TGIF – by the end of the working week it’s time for a little
relief and Knockoff delivers with comic precision every
Friday at Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm. Brisbane’s
own ImproMafia troupe makes it up as they go along and
spices the act with songs on the last Friday of every month
from 6pm ... And start the week on the right note with a double bill of
music talent also at the Powerhouse every Sunday afternoon, 3.30pm-
5.30pm. See who’s playing at
Free
learning
The local library isn’t
just about reading.
From iPad apps and Facebook
privacy to Pinterest basics, or how
to use Gumtree and eBay – even
how to bring butterflies into your
garden – you can learn for free
at regular events held at the local
library. For the full program see

Tales from
the gaol
From Churchie Grammar
boy to Chopper Read’s
bodyguard – Mark
‘Hammer’ Dixon has had
an eventful life, to say the least, which he has
chronicled in a book called
Hammer Bash for
Cash
. Dixon will be one of the authors giving
free talks about their experiences and their
books at Boggo Road Gaol in October to mark
the anniversary of the gaol’s closure 25 years
ago. Hear Dixon on Sunday 12 October from
11am at what used to be the Contact Visits Area
of the gaol and is now the new shop. For details

Walk back in time
Brisbane City Council has added three new guides to its series of self-guided
walking trails that now cover 10 areas from the city to Indooroopilly. Latest guides
offer maps and a back story to Millionaire’s row in Ascot and a meander around
Albion that traces its heritage from Aboriginal settlement and Chinese market
gardens to industrial prosperity. See
for the guides.
