Chet Faker

Thursday 31 October

SOLD OUT

Hailing from the tight-knit disco and house music scene in Melbourne and taking elements from an acoustic past, Chet Faker has carved out a unique style that fuses personal stories of love and loss with an electronica soul. He came to everyone’s attention when his cover of Blackstreet’s classic ‘No Diggity’ hit number one on Hype Machine and has now had over 1.7 million views on YouTube. Chet built on the popularity of ‘No Diggity’ through a series of online tracks, creating an insatiable hunger from fans for more from this part jazz, part soul and part electronic artist.

Tex Perkins & Charlie Owen

Thursday 9 May

SOLD OUT


Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music, with a career that has taken in everything from the ground breaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with The Dark Horses, from the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon's, to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea, Tex has heralded the emergence of an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.

In the early 90s Perkins joined forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel's pianist and master songwriter, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia's best kept musical secret. So come join Tex with his good friend Charlie Owen and friends for an intimate show. This is a night not to be missed.
