We’re back at The Town Hall Hotel in Newtown for another BIG night of talented performers and awesome bands. Oh and Marlena Dali, a circus sideshow performer all the way from Venice Beach Freakshow in LA.. Y’know, just to mix things up a little.
This month we’re excited to have the bands No Illuminati and Mirella’s Inferno grace our stage and of course the open mic from 7pm featuring:

Get in early; the first ten punters will score drink vouchers.. and couches!
No Illuminati – On stage at 11pm
The live show’s historical journey takes the listener on a rollercoaster ride through blues rock, electric jazz, alternative rock and modern electronica. Arrangements move from extremes and snatching at everything in between; heavy, growling, distortion laden rock and roll to stripped back acoustic ballads. The band has attracted attention partly due to its unusual and unorthodox sound; the keyboards that form the backbone of the band operate with a moog little phatty analog synthesizer as the bass with the sounds of a variety of tonewheel and transistor organs on the right hand (hammond b3, vox continental, farfisa compact) forming a massive wall of sound.
Mirella’s Inferno – on stage at 10pm
Classic literary references, 90s synth throwbacks and an ever growing circle of bandmates culminate to make one of Sydney’s most distinctive up-and-comers – Mirella’s Inferno.
This alternative-electro pop band is the brainchild of singer/songwriter, Meghan Dea. Drawn to music that is both poignant yet upbeat, Meghan makes music that is carefully balanced. Equal parts dramatic and danceable, their sound reflects a dark intimacy colliding with a subtle vulnerability.
Mixing the high energy of electro with vivid storytelling, Mirella’s Inferno gives electronic music a fresh organic feel, allowing a connection to be established beyond just the music heard.
Entry is free!
