Melbourne's Northcote Social Club upcoming events

Hearing Laura Marling sing, it's hard to believe she's just eighteen years old. Having been compared to her folk heroes Joni Mitchell and Carole King, as well as Kate Bush, her deft, cool phrasing is suggestive of someone who has a story to tell, and knows how to tell it. Her debut album 'Alas I Cannot Swim' has set critics and fans across the world whispering her praises.
Wednesday 6 August - On sale Fri 23 May!

Local Brisbane bands Yves Klien Blue and The John Steel Singers are joining forces for The Blue Steel Tour. Having just released their debut EP 'Yves Klein Blue Draw Attention To Themselves', the boys wanted to go on tour with their fellow Brisban-ites to create merry hell around the country. They've been impressing crowds both around Australia and internationally with their exciting live shows. The John Steel Singers have recently released their mini LP 'The Beagle And The Dove' from which, popular single 'Evolution' is currently on rotation on Triple J.

Friday 27 June.

Named 'Artist Of The Year' by International Acoustic Music Awards, Jason Harwell is a singer-songwriter from rural Georgia, USA. His debut 'Alive in the Fall' is a wide-reaching collection of alterna-folk songs that, according to Flagpole Magazine, "brims with sincerity and soul".
Thursday 22 May - Next week!

Those drunken pirates Clinkerfield are back in town after completing a national tour in support of the new album, 'A Head Full Of Rain & A Heart Full Of Puddles'.

On the eve of releasing his 8th studio album 'Day’s Like These', Diesel, playing electric guitar with his three piece band, will road test new tracks and re-visit his back catalogue making for an eclectic and electric set.

Following a sell out EP launch in 2007, and a string of highly successful gigs throughout Victoria early this year, Melbourne based singer/songwriter Nyssa Bradsworth is taking her music in a new direction.
