Mr Hill & Rahjconkas: Top Five Eateries

1. 5 Dogs — Brisbane, Brunswick St Mall. I bloody love this place. Nine times outta ten you'll catch me there after a show smashing a big New York hot dog and chilli fries. Good manly portions too.

2. Pizza Inn — Terrigal, NSW. This place is legit. Massive beer garden across the road. After midnight they do these things called instants, where they have heaps of smaller pizzas ready to go for the vultures spilling from the pub. Nom as.

3. Meryland — Melbourne. One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Located inside the Crown Casino. Don't ask me how we found it. Some proper feeds in this joint. Also, get the onion rings too. Thank me later.

4. Pho Hung — Sunnybank. I grew up near this place and discovered the greatest noodle soup with crispy chicken I've ever had. It's a tad hard to get to because it's not in the city, but I feel a lot better after eating this compared to the other four on this list.

5. Maccas. Pretty standard, but if you're not sure where to go in a city we all know the Golden Arches. I’m a big fan of getting heaps too much Maccas and waking up in a pile of bad food. Sweet mustard on the nuggets man. Also, Big Mac for life. Peace.

Mr Hill & Rahjconkas new single, ‘Telescope’, is available now. Mr Hill supports Mr Grevis at the Beetle Bar November 15 and Solbar November 16.

Top 5 Gigs Abroad With Deena

1. The Escape Artist — Taipei, Taiwan. This was a unique trifecta venue with food, music and art. People were eating and drinking in one corner, I was playing away in another and in the next room were artists interpreting my music onto canvas.

2. Caloundra Music Festival — Sunshine Coast, Australia. This was my very first full blown music festival and it was such an exhilarating experience as an artist and as a punter. I got to enjoy the four day festival and the cruisy, chilled, laidback feel was welcomed as it wasn't the usual festival feel.

3. M Bar K — Tokyo, Japan. This was a small Aussie pub in a cranny, away from the hustle bustle of Tokyo city. It was my very first gig and I only did it because I hadn't seen my dad for 7 years and he egged me on to get up there (he was the owner then and live music commonly occurred there). It's where I got the buzz for performing.

4. The Gypsy Den — Santa Ana, US. A funky hub in a spunky street of Santa Ana made this gig one of my favourites. I went there a few times to get some grub during my breaks from recording my debut album. I joined in with the local musicians on my last visit and had a jam off.

5. Music on the Glade — Inverloch, Australia. Who could complain after a morning fish, an afternoon pipi hunt, a cold beer and then playing the sundown while sunburnt to a sleepy sea town of people sprawled out all over the hillside.

Deena supports Taylor at Live At Bond, at Bond University, Sunday October 27.

Drunken Moon Festival Double Pass

Drunken Moon Festival returns to Brisbane for its second year for a spooky and boozy Halloween.

Mystery Road In-season Tickets

Ivan Sen’s ‘Mystery Road’ is many things.

It’s a murder mystery and a thriller, but it’s also a film about the meeting point of white and indigenous Australia.

In the film, Aaron Pedersen plays detective Jay Swan, who returns to his remote outback town to investigate the murder of a young girl.

Inspired by a real life murder case, it tells the story of the investigation, as it explores tension between the black and white communities in the town.

7bit Hero: Top Five Video Games

1. ‘Bubble Bobble’. I never played this game in the arcade but on the Amiga 500, and it changed my life. It involved two dragons called Bub and Bob that could blow bubbles from their adorable mouths. I would waste my days playing co-op with my friend. We would play a run that involved never dying until we reached level 100.

2. ‘Pokemon’. I’m not ashamed of playing this since its inception. ‘Pokemon Red’ was my jam and I chose Bulbasaur. Sure he was grass and would catch on fire at any chance, but he was rad and saved me from Team Rocket.

3. ‘Shadow Of The Colossus’. You’re a cursed kid that must take down creatures as tall as buildings. You spend hours climbing on them while they romp around the empty universe. It was an amazing mix of effort and payoff, but that payoff was the death of something you had scaled intimately for hours so you felt a mix of sad and happy.

4. ‘Battlefield’. I think it’s important to pick a SUPER franchise. This was the first game to have 32 player vehicle combat. ‘Battlefield 4’ is about to drop and I am playing the Beta right now.  The level designers have always perfectly constructed a cat and mouse layout.

5. ‘Faster Than Light’. I recently picked it up in a humble bundle pack and have been blown away with it! It is a rogue-like game that sees you managing a space ship. If you forget one little detail you will die. Like that time my oxygen room got damaged and everyone suffocated while repairing it. Sad day!

7bit Hero performs as part of 2high Festival at the Brisbane Powerhouse Saturday November 2.
