Editor’s Note

While our ~Editor Extraordinaire~ Gloria has been off enjoying a well-deserved Splendour getaway (look out for her front line review on page 36 by the way), I’ve moved chairs in the office to bring this week’s edition of Beat across the line. A true pleasure and privilege, especially given what a brilliant issue we’ve got lined up for you.

Most notably comes our Beat Eats section. Nestled right in the middle you’ll find our picks for choice eateries around Melbourne, from fine organic purveyors Aunt Maggie’s to certified barbeque lords The Que Club, right up to the eclectic wonder that is The Dandenong Market. Choosing from the smattering of options we’re so blessed to have within our city is no easy task, but don’t worry, baby boy Beat’s got your back. We did the work for you.

Gracing the cover comes the gems behind RVG who are coming to WinterWild, while if you flip a little further you’ll also find chats with those bringing you the likes of Adelaide Guitar Festival and Freedom Day Festival.

So whether you’re nursing post-Splendour blues or just downright Splendour envy, here’s to Beat 1636 washing some of that away, and as always, providing you with the next round of things to lap up. Dig in.
