Weekends still mean something in Australia. Weekend penalty rates mean you can be compensated for working when everyone else is relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends. Getting rid of weekend rates would mean a sudden pay cut to workers who can’t afford it, and don’t deserve it. But that's exactly what many employers are trying to do. They are demanding the Fair Work Commission cut weekend penalty rates. It's time to stand up and save our weekend. 12pm. Parliament, Spring St, City. Organised by United Voice.

Known to audiences for his stand-out, polarising performances with his bands, Over-Reactor, Mammal, Full Scale and The Ox and The Fury, his loyal fan base continues to grow by the album cycle, and these shows are sure to be in high demand.

Ox will be holding audiences captive with his narratives, reflections and musings on politics, music and the human spirit for five shows over three nights:
Thursday, January 12 (8pm), Friday, January 13 (8pm and 11pm) and Saturday, January 14 (8pm & 11pm).

The Empire Cafe , 295 Sydney Rd, Brunswick. $15/$10.
