This beautiful city named Sydney has no shortage of incredibly talented local and international artists passing through our doors. This week we take a look at five of the best picks this weekend, so read on to ensure that you don’t miss out on the action.
Tigertown @ Oxford Art Factory - Thursday September 5
These guys are another Sydney 5-piece that are definitely destined for big things in the near future. With a sweet indie pop sound, their folk influences ever present, and gorgeous harmonies led by husband and wife team, these guys put on a mystical show. Tigertown are supporting the release of their third EP to date ‘Wandering Eyes’ on this tour. If their previous two EP’s are anything to go by, it’s sure to be filled with some killer tracks that are soon to be heard live.
The Preatures @ Oxford Art Factory – Friday, September 6.
What is the go lately with Sydney and producing incredibly talented 5 pieces? The Preatures are a female led outfit that manage to blend rock and roll and gothic soul to perfection. This female is no other than Isabella Manfredi, a talented front woman that’s full of sass. Currently touring the release of their anticipated EP ‘Is This How You Feel?’, the lead single of the same name is sure to already be in your head. These guys are going to be supported by on the rise artists Chela and The Jones Rival. The show is actually already sold out, so hopefully you’ve already managed to snag tickets, otherwise fire up those Gumtree accounts!
Money For Rope @ Spectrum – Saturday, September 7.
Money For Rope are a Melbourne based pop-rock six piece. They’re currently coming off the back of an incredible debut album and an impressive back catalogue of support slots and festival appearances. Being likened to an Australiana-soaked outfit such as The Vasco Era, The Black Keys and Fraser A. Gorman - their live shows definitely pack a punch. These fellas should pack out Spectrum pretty early so make sure you secure your spot.
Alison Wonderland @ Oxford Art Factory - Saturday, September 7.
Anyone who’s attended any sort of festival/gig/musical extravaganza in the last few years is sure to have come across the name Alison Wonderland. She’s a super talented DJ and producer originating from Sydney and has really been making a name for herself as of late. After playing the likes of Falls Festival, Splendour, Secret Garden Festival and even the official Grammy’s after party, she has finally released her debut track ‘Get Ready’ – It’s sure to be hectic Saturday night.
Jack Carty @ Brighton Up Bar - Saturday, September 7.
Indie folkster Jack Carty is hitting up Brighton Up Bar for two nights running this weekend. Since bursting onto the scene in 2009, Carty has had a busy couple of years. His first two albums were released to critical acclaim and he even managed to grab a MusicOz award for “Singer-Songwriter of The Year”. Now the most recent release “The Predictable Crisis of Modern Life” takes a turn away musically from his previous work. He’ll be playing with a full band and fellow respected muso Jordan Millar will be also joining the stage line-up. With reviews that include the words of “Put simply… Stunning”, it’s a pretty safe bet this show will be too.
