Why is Modern Monetary Theory important?

Since the federal government has no nominal limitations on spending, it means that it can always afford to buy anything for sale in its own currency, including labour. As such, unemployment is a political choice, not an economic imperative.

Hello Tut Tut at the Treehouse in Belongil on Friday
Hello Tut Tut at the Treehouse in Belongil on Friday

Tut Tut!

It’s been a quick ascent for Melbourne’s freshest gypsy band Hello Tut Tut as they’ve gone from playing frosty morning markets and quirky cafes to some of Melbourne’s most iconic venues around town. Although it’s early days, it can be safely said that Hello Tut Tut leave patches of sweat and odours that smack of a good time in their wake. Over the last six months this juicy six-piece of gypsy jivers has brought nights to staggering starts and chaotic conclusions, whether it be on the grungy dance floor of Bar Open, under the olive trees at Farouk’s Olive, or by the red-and-white checkered candle-lit tables at Open Studio. Their enthusiasm for embracing any opportunity to put on a high-energy show has seen them gaining a reputation as head turners, jaw droppers and gypsy beat boppers. They play the Treehouse in Byron on Friday.

Parcels – at Byron Theatre at the Community Centre on Saturday

Last Parcels before Berlin

Since landing back on home soil Parcels has released a cracking new track, Older, which has been picked up by Triple J (worldwide first airplay), Sydney’s FBi Radio and Brisbane’s 4ZZZ to name a few. ‘People seem to be liking our new track, Older, over here too. It received a bit of Triple J love and the song has a somewhat sunny feel to it, which obviously makes sense in Australia. It’s so nice to have positive feedback and we really appreciate the support from all angles.’ After the Australian tour wraps up the Parcels boys are headed back abroad where they will launch straight into another tour to support Two Door Cinema Club throughout Europe. They play the Byron Theatre at the Community Centre on Saturday.

Giving the New Year a nudge

Nudge into the New Year at the Billinudgel on Sunday and help the Cunning Stunts surpass December’s donation of $4,000 that they raised for You Have a Friend. The January Nudge Nudge Wink Wink features an amazing lineup starting with Mullumbimby based DJ Morrisboy aka Trent Morris, who’ll be kicking off this New Year Nudge with his eclectic grooves. Followed by sets from beloved Cunning Stunts DJs Dale Stephen, and Lord Sut taking ravers through to the final DJ of the day Nick Field. Originally from England and now based in Bali, Nick is a true legend on the decks who has his own sound influenced by his loves of disco, electro and house. With almost 25 years’ global DJing experience, you should not miss his set! January’s event will raise money for local not-for-profit Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre’s More Than a Meal program, which is in immediate need of funding. In 2016 they were able to serve 12,500 meals to community members and help many with social isolation and improving their overall wellbeing. Ensuring they can continue to do so in the new year is a priority. Food carts, an outside bar and amazing raffle prizes all contribute to this not-to-be missed FREE event that the first Sunday of the month has become. Billinudgel Hotel from 2pm till 4pm.
