Twin Peaks events
Gelato Messina's Richmond store will be transforming into Twin Peaks’ Double R Diner for one day only. Head down on Thursday May 25 for a scoop – Messina has created three different Twin Peaks themed flavours, and if you’re one of the first 50 fans through the door you can score a free slice of their limited edition cherry gelato pie.
In two special live performances, Xiu Xiu will be taking on the music of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, famously composed by Lynch’s long-time collaborator Angelo Badalamenti. But Xiu Xiu’s performance won’t just be a simple recreation of Badalamenti’s compositions – it will be an entirely new interpretation that will emphasise the drama, fear, noise and chaos. Basically, it will feel like stepping into David Lynch’s plastic-wrapped brain and throwing a party.
This experiential trivia night will be centred around a different episode of Twin Peaks each week. Fans may want to brush up, but you don't need prior knowledge of the show, as answers are revealed as part of the trivia experience on the night. Your evening includes dinner, dessert (with a menu inspired by the show), a glass of vino or a pot, and unlimited, damn fine filtered coffee. Winners will take home a Carlton Club gift voucher as well as a Twin Peaks prize pack.
