THIS WEEK : FRIDAY October 12th .. Charm of Finches are Melbourne’s teen sister duo, aka Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes. ‘ LISTEN ‘They sing in dreamy harmony about heartbreak, solitude and whispering trees.The award-winning teens began singing Appalachian folk songs outside their local veggie shop every Saturday morning from the ages of 11 and 8. Harmony singing has always been a kind of game, weaving melodies around in an attempt to surprise the other. Along side that they also play a great selection of instruments ie: Guitar, uke, glockenspiel, fiddle and cello .

The girls will be supported by Kate and Nat from Coda Chroma ‘ LISTEN ‘, who are another duo with incredible talent .Beautiful melodic songs with more harmonies and stunning musicianship . And a very special early set at 8pm from 12 yr old Violet Kelly ,who is a local musician with a huge amount of talent . We cant wait to support her in her first proper paid gig .. So all in all its an all girl line up that we are very proud and pleased about . BOOK here for Charm of Finches.

BAR :  Well not much to report from behind the Party Bar except that its out with the Mulled Cider and Its in with the Aperol Spritz , oh and the Mojitos . hic ! The Dark and Stormy’s are still  going strong and our Espresso Martinis are always a popular choice for the Friday night energy slump-sters ..hic

YASOU : Toodle ooh for another week of Crazy Kastorian Chaos . Some nights  it feels a bit Faulty Towers up there ,and this week was no exception . We had a stray dog run up the stairs who ended up on stage for a second and then our cat followed us all the way to the club from home and wanted to come in .. Really gotta get that Cat a key ! So as they say , all good in the garden if the roots aren’t severed and as i like to say alls good in the Club if the beer is cold . Yep the Fridges are still chugging along !
