The APIA Good Times Tour rolls back into town this week with an all-star lineup of Australian music heroes. Brian Cadd, Deborah Conway, Joe Camilleri, John Paul Young, Kate Ceberano, Leo Sayer, Vika & Linda Bull and Wendy Matthews will all be on hand to serve up memorable favourites and new takes on Aussie music classics.
Downer’s Gang Gang Cafe is busy again with shows across the weekend. Lucy Sugerman strips her songs back to their raw acoustic foundations with her Live & Acoustic set on Friday while sun-drenched pop trio Apricot Ink performs there on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Eden Plenty is launching his new album Round The Bends at The Polo on Friday night with support from Lily Morris, Toby Morwitch, and Ali Bryant. On Thursday, Canberran rocker Nina Leo will celebrate the release of her EP Fake It with a launch show at sideway.
