October line ups

Music on the Hill, Friday 7 October, Red Hill Pavilion, doors open 7.00pm.

Tinpan Orange, Chris Pickering

Critically acclaimed Melbourne indie-folk darlings Tinpan Orange play MOTH on the first Friday of October. They are currently taking Australia by storm with their latest release ‘Love is a Dog’. With the ethereal and mesmerising Emily Lubitz at the helm, the trio are wowing fans and critics all over the country. Tinpan Orange’s melancholic indie-folk music has a classic, brooding and slightly playful edge.

Melbourne-based singer songwriter Chris Pickering will open the night at 7.30pm. Chris  writes and performs songs in very much his own style: think a 21st century malcontent that somehow found himself adrift in Laurel Canyon in the late 1960s, soaking up everything he could and then transforming that into new music.

Doors open 7.00pm. Local wines and beer available. Tickets available here.

MOTH Acoustic Club, Saturday 15 October, Whistlewood Private Art Gallery, doors open 5.00pm.

Leah Flanagan – MOTH Acoustic Club @ Whistlewood – SOLD OUT

Leah Flanagan recently released her latest album Saudades and has included MOTH Acoustic Club as part of her national album tour.

The Darwin-raised, Sydney-based singer songwriter will play a solo, unplugged, intimate performance in the unique, gallery environment at Whistlewood.

Saudades – it almost sounds like a sigh. An audible release of emotion, tinged with regret and a melancholy kind of pleasure.  It is the perfect title for this elegant collection of heartfelt songs by the rising Australian songwriter, singer and sometime saltwater ukulele whisperer.

The culmination of two years’ work and recorded live in the studio with Leah’s band and music director/producer Niall Anderson a majority of the album was made at the studio of Midnight Oil’s Jim Moginie in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, then mixed by Paul McKercher at 301 and Free Energy Device Studios.

Leah dives in deep with her second release Saudades, a suite of songs that capture a full repertoire of the emotions that we carry into our relationships, romantic and otherwise. ALL of the feels…

“The first single (Chills) from Leah’s upcoming album Saudades is a beautiful produced track that sees her deliver trademark sensitive, searching vocals over an echoey riff, contemplating an emotionally distant love“  Tone Deaf

Doors open at 5.00pm for a 5.30 prompt start. Complimentary finger food will be served during the interval. Local wines and beers available for purchase.

There are a limited number of tickets available for this unique show.

Tickets available here.
