Mick created TAGG - The Alternative Gig Guide in 1979 with Helmut Katterl, the world's first real Street Magazine. He had been involved with his father's publishing business, Toorak Times and associated publications since 1972.  Mick was also involved in Melbourne's music scene for a number of years opening venues, discovering and managing bands and providing information and support for the industry.        



Melbourne’s own international prizewinners, the Affinity Quartet, returns from a period in Europe to perform Beethoven’s first foray into string quartets, the Opus 18, over two nights only at Gasworks Theatre. With these six compact and ground-breaking string quartets, a young Beethoven, still in his twenties, defies the logic of the Enlightenment to create a striking new direction for this intimate medium. Don’t miss these powerfully crafted, timeless programs performed by one of the most exciting chamber music groups in Australia.
