Imogen Sloss

When I am not eating food, I am either making food, writing about food or thinking about the next time I can eat food. I tell people I study Creative and Professional Writing because I read a lot as a child and love storytelling, but the reality is that I am passionate about the correct use of apostrophes and want a degree to justify my obsession. Never heard anyone yell about a semicolon? You obviously haven’t met me. In my spare time, I am an advocate for patting strangers’ dogs, recycling, napping, and using the Oxford Comma.

Review: Alison Wonderland at the Tivoli

November 29, 2018 |

For someone with such a small stature, Alison knows how to play a crowd. When I arrived at the Tivoli on Thursday night, I couldn’t help think about a) how I had work tomorrow and b) how cold and sober I was. Read More

Review: Golden Features at Eatons Hill Hotel

August 17, 2018 |

Let me preface this by saying: when you are used to seeing your live performances in inner-city Brisbane, such as Fortitude Valley, Riverstage or Southbank, having to go all the way out to Eatons Hill is a hell of a trek. Let me also say: Golden Features made it oh so worth it. Read More

QSO REVIEW: Why You Should Watch A Symphony Orchestra Solo

April 10, 2018 |

The idea of “solo dates” is not a new one. To me, asking for a table for one is less lonely and more introspective. Going to see a movie or a gig by yourself allows for a greater immersion in the art.

It seems so much more intimidating, however, to get dressed up and go to see the Queensland Symphony Orchestra by yourself. Read More
