As live music slowly returns venues such as Marrickville's Django Bar are playing an increasingly important  role. Particularly for up and coming local bands such as The Fallen Robins, who would typically be busy on the folk music festival circuit all around the country.

THE NAKED CITY – SYDNEY’S MUSIC CENTRAL

In a city where live music has taken a real beating over the past decade or so, one suburb is defying the trend with a string of venues far outnumbering what other precincts have to offer. Whereas areas such as the Sydney CBD and Kings Cross once boasted numerous live music venues, it’s Marrickville that […]

Gregg Arthur Quintet: In A Sentimental Mood

You should not miss hearing Gregg Arthur’s honeyed voice at the Camelot Lounge at Marrickville on Sunday December 23.

He is both a great interpreter of the jazz classics, and also has a […]

Little Egypt’s Speakeasy

The Camelot Lounge in Marrickville will be transformed into an American 1950s Speakeasy to tell the tale of exotic dancer Little Egypt and her infamous club.

Camelot Lounge

I’d follow singer Christa Hughes - daughter of the legendary Dick Hughes, the first solo jazz pianist to perform at Sydney Opera House – just about anywhere.

Life drawing in the winter crowd

It may be cold outside, but Marrickville is warming things up this winter with a bohemian blend of art, gypsy rhythms and nudity at popular watering hole, Camelot Lounge. On any given Wednesday, an eclectic assembly of up to 40 artists can be found huddled in the downstairs Django Bar for Gypsy Art Club, a […]

Dave Graney

Hailing from Melbourne, there are very few Australian musicians with the longevity that Dave Graney boasts. He's worked with his musical companion Claire Moore for over thirty years and it’s safe to say that they don’t let their post-punk influenced attitudes evaporate with maturity. “Other people our age don’t make music like us,” Graney says […]
