Australian songwriter David Bridie launches his sixth solo album ‘The Wisdom Line’ at the Street Theatre this Friday with an immersive, multi-media experience.

The album and accompanying films trace and weave the countless moments, issues and stories connecting us across this continent from the desert to the suburban: combining music, soundscape, spoken word and photos from Bridie’s travels.

The Street University’s 5th crop-up session on Wednesday features must-see local acts including Groovy Daughter, rapper Indighost, and ICM along with an open mic.

On Thursday, Psychedelic surf-rockers The Narcissists end their three-date residency at Transit Bar with Paint Store and The Differs, while Liv Li launches her delicious electro-pop single ‘Bloom’ at Smiths.

Friday, Canberra alt-rockers Mach 81 join Ladybug and others to rock the Polo, and Melbourne’s Cool Sounds play sideway with Sydney’s Greenwave Beth and our own Dog Name. Melbourne Comedian Kristy Welbeck is also in town for her show ‘Chipper’ at the Civic Pub.

The Braidwood Hotel celebrates 160 years on Saturday, while emerging artists and musos can jam with ‘Music and Art’ at the Pot Belly or ‘Bang!! Beng!! Bing!! Bong!! Bung!!’ at Smiths.

The heats continue on Saturday for Canberra’s Next Drag Superstar: with the crowned one set to represent the ACT at ‘Australia’s Got Drag’ in Port Macquarie. And the Canberra Big Band Collective’s latest get-together goes off with dancing at the Harmonie German Club.
