Wollongong’s Hockey Dad announced that they’ll be launching their new album this July with a drive-in concert at the Bulli Showgrounds. It certainly is a sign of the times that the closest we might come to experiencing a normal rock concert in 2020 is through the windscreen of our cars.

Down south in Melbourne, a number of concert halls and theatres have announced their plans to reopen, albeit with socially distanced audiences and a capacity of 50.

It remains to be seen whether these tentative steps back towards the live music experiences of old are sustainable alternatives to the gig-going norm, or fresh takes whose novelty masks the sad truth that the atmosphere at a show is often just as important as the performance.

The Maneki Sessions

The Maneki Sessions will highlight some of Canberra’s finest musicians.

Where: Streaming online
When: Thursday, 8:00 pm.

Infidel Studios, The Noise Floor, and Foundation Media have joined forces to create The Maneki Sessions, a live-streamed series of performances from Canberra’s finest musicians. Taking over the intimate confines of Infidel Studio’s in Queanbeyan, this is a chance to catch songwriters doing their thing in their natural habitat. This week features Michael Simic (AKA Mikelangelo) performing songs from across his 12 albums and 20-year career. Tune in from 8:00 pm this Thursday for this free, live-streamed event.

When: Friday, 7:30 pm.

Live In Ya Lounge continues this Friday, marking another week of the ACT live stream with the highest production values. From a stage hidden in the depths of EPIC that looks like the Australian Idol set circa 2006, it’s lights, camera, action for two of the city’s hardest-hitting rock bands this weekend. Charlotte & The Harlots and Signs & Symbols will both be taking to the stage for this live free, streamed event.
