Finn Andrews (of The Veils) 2ND SHOW

Band Room // $39.80


Since signing a record deal at the tender age of 16, Finn Andrews and his band The Veils have released 5 albums together, appeared in David Lynch's reboot of Twin Peaks, as well as on soundtracks by luminary film directors Tim Burton and Paolo Sorrentino, and was also recently been commissioned by the Belgian government to write a 20-minute orchestral piece to commemorate the antipodean dead of World War I. It was while writing 2016’s Total Depravity that the New Zealand-raised musician realised a different streak was beginning to emerge. Fuelled by the end of a relationship, Andrews took some time out from London and from The Veils, and returned to New Zealand to begin work on his first solo album, One Piece At A Time, which will be released in March 2019.

Australian born vagabond Stu Larsen and Japanese harmonica player Natsuki Kurai have announced tour dates to finish a massive year that has taken them from Australia to Japan and on to North America, with a giant European run coming up next month before finally returning to Australia for their final shows of the year.

Earlier this year, the duo released their second EP together, aptly titled Stu Larsen & Natsuki Kurai II (via Nettwerk Records). The 4-song EP includes two original tracks – “My Poor Father” and “Hajimari” – but, also two reinterpretations of tracks from Larsen’s last album Resolute – “Chicago Song” and “Going Back To Bowenville.” Natsuki adds a swagger and energy to Stu’s observations on life from his travels.

Nearly eight years ago, Natsuki and Larsen met in the middle of Tokyo and quickly connected with each other. “I spoke no Japanese and Natsuki didn’t speak English so we found we had to communicate in other ways. We both agree that this allowed us to form a deeper connection, without the use of words,” says Larsen. Since then, they’ve continued traveling back and forth from Australia to Japan, playing shows and festivals along the way.

Imogen Clark

When an artist first emerges at a young age, they often have a limited well of knowledge and experience to draw from, yet on her sophomore album Collide, Imogen Clark tackles, with great clarity, the tumultuous process of entering adulthood, the joys and challenges of learning about yourself, those around you, and your place in the world, and the duality of emotion that is the undercurrent of so many of life’s experiences.

Collide was produced by Australian legend Mark Lizotte (Diesel) and has already become one of the most talked about albums of 2018, charting at #4 on the ARIA Australian Country Albums chart, only topped by industry giants Kasey Chambers and Keith Urban.

The range and conviction within Imogen’s songwriting and live performances will continue to capture the hearts and minds of new fans as the bruised, honest and ultimately optimistic songs of Collide make their way into the world.

This Spring, Imogen will embark on the 'Late Night Girl Tour', her most extensive headline tour of the country to date, a reflection of the way in which her new album has catapulted her to new heights. There are no signs of slowing for Imogen Clark.

Raised free range on the Darling Downs, (south east Queensland), cacao-dusted cottony folk singer Pepper Jane and her guitar, Maureen, have finally released their official debut single, 'Keys', September 21.

"In the beginning, the song happened really quickly. I seem to have developed a little sensory sensitivity over the years, and 'Keys' is about that crunchy, obnoxious noise keys make when you pick them up off the counter, in a dark, empty room", says Pepper. "And I guess I was missing someone."

Pepper is taking the track on a national tour to celebrate the release of 'Keys', 4 years in the making, starting in Hobart from October 16.

We are thrilled to announce Melbourne-based, NZ-bred indie popstar TAMMA joins the lineup, alongside Tasmanian folk singer Madelena.

TAMMA released her debut single 'Beat You Down', October 12, already added to rotation across commercial radio stations nationally, and Madelena was just announced on this year's Woodford Folk Festival program.

Northside Jazz Orchestra

Band Room // $10

Beginning only last year the Northside Jazz Orchestra was formed in good old Northcote.
Consisting of five saxes,four trumpets,four trombones, guitar,bass,piano and drums for that “full” big band wall of sound that needs to seem to be believed.

NJO fearturs two Vocalists in Its line up.
Nitida Atkinson brings her amazing vocal style which fits in perfectly with this ensemble and adds some beautiful colors to every performance and needs to be experienced.
Sam Qualtrough sings with a passion that spices up every song and he clearly gets a kick out of it and so will you. We enjoy it too.

Northside Jazz Orchestra features musicians from some of Melbourne’s best bands and Its a privilege to get them all in one room at the same time. (NJO) plays modern original composition written by band members also original arrangements of classic standards, some well know others more obscure but not to be underrated.

Go support live music in Darebin it’s a win win.
