On Saturday the 27th of October, Sydney’s hippest postcode will celebrate everything creative, fun, and funky!
At its newly revitalised home in Prince Alfred Park, the Surry Hills Festival will showcase Australia’s ‘freshest’ up-and-coming bands and established musos. With the unique sounds as your backdrop, you can wander the revamped commons among crazy art installations, theatre performances, and even some promised kooky acts!
The festival is ‘the place’ to peruse eclectic markets and pick up one-of-a-kind goodies. You’ll dine on gourmet food stalls and discover new tastes and flavours. Alternatively, lounge on the grass and soak up the atmosphere with a cool drink in hand from one of the many themed bars on site.
Funds raised on the day go to the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre to run community development programs for the local area.
Check out Surry Hills Festival for a full line-up of bands, artists, performances and the latest program updates.
It’ll be a very happy birthday for Marissa Saroca on the 28th of May. She’s launching her second album Boys Write Love Songs Too before blowing out the candles on her birthday cake. Since her first album, Cheaper Than Therapy, Saroca has racked up tens of thousands of frequent flyer miles, splitting her time between home and touring the faraway cities of London, Paris, New York, and Toronto. Upon each return, she enlisted friends and musicians Adam Miller (8 string guitar) and Adam Morris (drums) to bring her tunes and stories to life. The result: Boys Write Love Songs Too, eight original tracks full of soul, attitude, life, love, and honesty – all showcasing her irresistible voice.
Using Adam Miller as producer, Boys Write Love Songs Too perfectly captures the exciting, raw energy of the kind of live show one can only expect from such seasoned musicians. Saroca’s love for R&B/Soul is still evident, the album’s sometimes-rock edge helping flaunt her new-found sassiness.
