As July dwindles, we have found some nice things to do before the month ends. If you are in Melbourne, rug up and head along to the Victoria Markets for a night of music, food and fun. There will be jazz elsewhere during and week and beats to get you up and dancing at the end of the week. On Sunday the National Gallery of Victoria hosts Unplugged Live where folky songstress Melody Pool will warm hearts with her sweet voice and artful storytelling.
