Fans of The Ellis Collective (which is pretty much any sane person who’s heard them) will be thrilled to read they’re booked solid at The Front this February:
Each week will feature a special guest performer and will include:
• The Understudy (Feb 3): The Understudy is the performing name of Novocastrian Lucy Hearn, performing a studious appropriation of a strand of indie-folk currently made popular by a number of this country’s prominent female artists. Let’s just say that if Holly Throsby found reason to drop out of public consciousness, The Understudy would have little trouble filling in.
• Lucie Thorne (10 & 24 Feb): Lauded for her unique voice, poetic lyricism, and tender-to gutsy electric guitar playing, Lucie Thorne has earned her place as one of the most striking lyricists and voices of Australian contemporary song. Lucie returns to Canberra off the back of a successful international tour.
• The New Gods of Thunder (17 Feb): TNGoT is the latest musical offering from Sanji DaSilva, one of Canberra’s favourite songwriting sons. His introspective lyrics and Dylanesque delivery are underscored by his ability to weave a story and capture a crowd with his boundless charisma and enthusiasm.
Evenings run from 4:30 – 6:30 every Sunday afternoon in February at The Front – Entry is $10
