Sydney-based, Canberra-raised artist Hedy Blaazer is a singer-songwriter that can create entire musical landscapes with little more than an acoustic guitar, voice and violin accompaniment. With a new tape to launch and a suspected guest appearance from a local music celebrity, her show on Friday at Transit Bar, with similarly stunning songwriters in Ghostgum and Evan Buckley, is not to be missed.

Also on Friday night, legendary Australian rock outfit Spiderbait hit UC Refectory alongside The Lazy Susans and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers. If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite for classic rock, Canadian band The Tea Party are set to play Kambri this coming Tuesday.

For something a little more underground, head to Mulgara’s house show on Saturday night featuring Sydney DIY punks Floral Sheets as well as locals Dog Name and Powder Blue. And, in case you haven’t been paying attention, rising indie rockers Sputnik Sweetheart have just released their new single ‘Home Again’ and they’re launching it on Saturday night at the Polish Club.

If you’d rather not stay out late, there are a host of daytime shows on offer this week, including Hashemoto at the Community Afternoon Tea in Haig Park on Saturday, Wesley Music Centre’s Lunchtime Concert on Wednesday the 19th, and Smith’s Alternative’s regular Sunday Jazz Jam.
