Austin Brady

Friday 30th January

Austin sings, plays guitar and does the occasional tap dance on a Loop pedal.

His songs are kinda funky and bluesy one minute and exquisitely delicate the
next, he also likes to throw in some old favs from people like Tom Waits and John Martyn that have been carefully arranged for voice and guitar. Tim Pledger occasionally pops in and has a toot on his clarinet for which we are all very thankful.

Captain Apples

Leah & Andy Senior
Friday 30th January

These dim halls have lain ungraced for too long a time. Time that is, of course, entirely meaningless to an allegorical spectre made of ectoplasm and whimsy such as the ghostly (but never ghoulish) Captain Apples. Time that is, nevertheless, all too long to each of us, concretely corporeal manifestations of the universe that we are. Let’s get drunk and dance waltz time to the ever-enlarging troupe you knew once and will hopefully love again. We’ve missed you. We'll be supported by the appallingly talented Leah and Andi Senior, who will sing you some scarily beautiful songs. See you at The Wesley Anne. It'll cost you $12, or $10 if you are actively and formally engaged in the pursuit of 'knowledge' (i.e. a B.A.).

Refraction

Thursday 5th February

Drawing inspiration from such artists as Tord Gustavsen, Esbjorn Svensson, Robert Glasper and Weather Report, the group’s material is centred around drummer and leader Chris Broomhead’s compositions and arrangements – pieces which allow space for collective ensemble interpretation, interaction and improvisation but hold a clear vision that makes the journey the very destination the music is seeking.

Friday 6th February

Since starting in 2008, Melting Pot's Songwriters in the Round has gained the reputation of being one of Australia's premier regular acoustic events.

Featuring a unique concept of 3 highly talented singer-songwriters seated facing each other in a circle in the middle of the band room, they each take turns in playing their tunes, one by one, and so it goes 'round'.

It's intimate, often interactive and incredibly special to be part of for both the artists and audience members alike!

"Cancel all plans for the first Saturday of the month. We don’t give a s**t even if it’s your nan’s 90th birthday – you have to go and see Grain of Truth instead. This is goddamn hilarious." - **** Beat Magazine

Zee has an inimitable talent for improvising onstage that is simply exhilarating to watch. The raspy blues tones unleashed in her wild and passionate delivery fill the air with a buzz that seems to flow on tap from the source, inspiring standing ovations from music legends Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Roger Daltrey (The Who) and the late great Amy Winehouse. Their high octane live performances are an experience that put Z-STAR on that list of bands you must see live!
