Contemporary soul singer Laura Ingram returns to her hometown on Tuesday to celebrate the festive season in style. This special show will see her performing the songs off her recent double A-side single ‘Home For Christmas’/’Christmas Eve’, as well as some seasonal classics.
Keeping in the Christmas spirit, Lyneham’s favourite rustic watering hole, the Old Canberra Inn, is hosting a Yuletide celebration of their own. Saturday afternoon sees the Inner North pub playing host to the OCI Christmas Fest, a distinctly Canberran reinvention of the holiday season. Fuelers, East Row Rabble, Zambezi Sounds and more join Sydney’s Eamon Dilworth’s Crawfish Po’Boys on a long list of acts set to perform – and more are being added throughout the week.
Local arts and music zine TUNDRA is putting a line under 2020 with their final event of the year, a three-band bill on Thursday evening in the intimate surrounds of East Row’s sideway bar. It’ll be the best night of the week to catch Canberra’s indie rock and psych bands, with HYG, The Narcissists and Sunday Sojourn all taking to the stage.
