The Fall Guy

Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt are being silly in a film take of the ‘80s television series: The Fall Guy. He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy, and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?

Mullum High School students have organised a big lineup of bands to play on June 15 at the school’s hall.

Mullum Unearthed will feature eight bands from three local high schools who will compete for prizes with a total value of $2,000.

The winning band will score two days of recording and mastering at SAE.

Campus manager Ben Funnell said, ‘SAE embraces the opportunity to foster creative relationships with the region’s local schools. Byron Shire is a hive of creativity, and this includes the district’s talented high school students. Our studio spaces are the perfect outlet for their artistry.’


The night will also be a fundraiser for the Chrysalis program, which is a prevention-based youth development and support group for young women in local high schools.

Tickets are available at Byron Music, Mullumbimby Santos and Valiant Music in Brunswick Heads. For more info visit mullumunearthed.weebly.com.
