I should be in bed...  
..but I think I'm too wired to sleep. I stayed in the city after work tonight, and after a quick meal headed down to here:

The Queensland Performing Arts Centre, to see the most amazing dancers - where hiphop meets classical:

Bloody brilliant, it was.

Brisbane is so pretty at night, with all of the lights reflecting back onto the river.

Can you tell that I'm kind of in love with my city?

The dancing was really great, thanks for the vid.

And yes, your city looks wonderful at night. :D

I'm glad you enjoyed it, they really were fantastic. It went for over an hour and the sheer energy of it made me feel quite slothful by comparison.

You're very welcome, thank you for looking and commenting. It looks so lovely at night with the lights reflected in the water and Victoria Bridge lit up like that.

It must have been wonderful to see these dancers 'live'. Just watching the vid, (to quote you) bloody brilliant is what I thought too.

It's amazing what coloured lights reflected in the river can do to glamourise a city. It looks great in your photos.

It was wonderful for sure. They've toured all over the world with this show and it really was world-class.

Brisbane certainly looks good all gussied up with lights.

Good grief, watching that dancer spin on his head is making my head hurt in sympathy. This is who you went to see? How wonderful. I love the way YouTube lets us share what we saw with friends.

All the acrobatics reminds that last night a happy fairy in Midsummer Night's Dream did a totally unexpected backflip. It made me grin in sheer sympathy.

Brisbane looks spectacular, and I am so glad you love where you are living. It makes such a difference to life. I know you moved quite a way to get there. Are you from Brisbane and moved back, or is it a new city to you?

They were absolutely marvellous. Of course it wasn't the actual fashion night event but it was the same show with the same performers. Bach is my favourite composer and it was amazing to see how they welded baroque with break dance.

Back-flipping fairy would have made me grin too, I think. The sheer unexpectedness of it!

Brisbane looks very spectacular at night - by day it's an ordinary city, not really any different to any other city. But at night, when she puts on her paint and pearls, she's utterly transformed.

It's a new city to me, well when I say new it's been ten years now, but I used to come up here for cat shows a lot, and once my son moved here it seemed like the right place to be. I've lived in a LOT of places over the years - in fact I once did a google search of every place I could recall living, and posted about it here .

ETA: the first five are suburbs of Sydney, the next two are on different sides of the Blue Mountains, the following two are on the Central West (NSW) plains, and three prior to Brisbane are on the far north coast of NSW. Coffs Harbour was a beautiful place to live, I have to admit.
