Lloyd Spiegel Trio ~ Bakehouse Dozen Tour

Fri 6 Oct @ 8.00pm | Burrinja Theare

Melbourne Blues artist Lloyd Spiegel has been touring the globe for 30 of his 40 years.

The 14 time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most interesting stories in music, having grown up on stage learning from, and touring with the founding fathers of modern Blues.

The current show features the incredibly talented Lisa Baird on Trombone and long-time collaborator Tim Burnham on drums. Combined with Spiegel’s guitar wizardry, powerful vocal performance and knack for storytelling, this trio with a twist delivers a truly unique entertainment experience that reinvents the blues and dispels the cliches associated with it. This tour celebrates the release of ‘Bakehouse Dozen’. Recorded live in session with no overdubs at Melbourne’s iconic Bakehouse studios, the album offers reimagined versions of songs from Spiegel’s last 3 multi - award winning recordings and showcases the raw energy and depth of the trio, signalling what’s to come.

Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomises control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.”The Age

Burrinja presents

Double Feature | Damian Callinan

Thu 26 Oct @ 7.30pm | Burrinja Theatre


A romantic romp through Post WW2 Melbourne!

The surprise discovery of his mother’s 1946 diary leads three-time Barry Award nominee Damian Callinan on a cinematic, romantic romp through post-war Melbourne. However, her diary poses more questions than it does answers.

With suitors lining up for 19-year-old Kathleen Purcell, will Jack Bowlen ever get the Canadian two step right? Will Ron Rogan keep his hands to himself? But most importantly for Damian’s very existence, will she notice the dapper fly boy who has just returned from active service?

His mother’s charming journal is hilariously contrasted with his father Adrian’s retirement diary that bookends his parent’s loving relationship and sadly, reveals the tragedy that brought it to an end. The creator and star of the Netflix hit film The Merger uses his powerful gift for storytelling to recast his parents in a funny and poignant double feature of love and loss.

“Sublime, heartwarming, hilarious - an absolute triumph.” Sammy J [comedian, ABC broadcaster & presenter]

Tickets ~ $19 - $39

Live in the Lyre

Minor Gold ~ Live in the Lyre 

Thu 2 Nov @ 8.00pm | Lyre Room

Minor Gold are the new Americana/Folk duo featuring ARIA nominated, award-winning songwriters Tracy McNeil & Dan Parsons. Living in a van whilst touring as solo artists in early 2020, Parsons and McNeil hightailed it out of Melbourne Victoria up to sunny Queensland, narrowly avoiding the winter as the first lockdown occurred. Holed up in the land of palm trees and perfect weather, the duo subsequently wrote their debut album ‘Minor Gold’ – released August 11, 2023.

Weaving masterful harmonies around stripped-back, organic arrangements that draw on the breezy sounds of 70’s west-coast pop, the daydream haze of 60’s folk to the ballad-power and polaroid romance of the 80’s, Minor Gold display a spellbinding musical connection throughout this superb collection of songs.

“The pairs real superpower is their melodic vocal interplay and sixth-sense harmonies…Imagine standing at a crossroads, halfway between Laurel Canyon and a sandy palm tree cove. These are the intoxicating sounds you might hear drifting on that summer breeze.” - Chris Familton Rhythms Magazine

In under a year, Minor Gold have released three singles, each added to national high rotation on Double J. In February 2023, the duo charmed audiences at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, and have just completed a 26+ date North American Tour with an Official Showcase at the AmericanaFest in Nashville and additional shows supporting The Teskey Brothers in major venues in the U.S. & Canada.

Live in the Lyre

Xani ~ An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music ~ Live in the Lyre

Fri 17 Nov @ 8.00pm | Lyre Room

Xani, the award-winning musical alchemist, brings her latest album 'An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music' to life, Live in the Lyre. Get ready to be transported to a limitless and timeless musical world, with Xani's string-filled genre-expanding tracks.

Join us for a night of boundless dancing, soulful music and powerful vocals. Experience the music of Xani, who has been awarded 'Best Musician' at the Music Victoria Awards and whose sound and voice have won over fans at packed theatres, small steamy jazz venues, nightclubs, and even on Twitch, where she has thousands of followers.

'An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music' is an acutely personal interpretation of the evolution of electronic dance music, and Xani, along with her musical collaborators and friends, will take you on a journey through its (inaccurate) history chapter by chapter. From the wide-eyed naive 'Michelle' to the euphoric fast tempos of 'B U Want 2 B', this album weaves through the blurring world of acid house, disco, psytrance, and more, with Xani's two self-produced tracks, 'Astrojet' and 'Road Trip'.

Don't miss this chance to experience the musical alchemy of Xani and friends, as they bring their unique sound to the stage. Let's dance together and wonder what the future of electronic dance music might sound like.

“May this collection of songs transport you, inspire you and fill your hearts with disco smiles. This is my inaccurate history of electronic dance music, dreamed up straight from my heart to yours.” - Xani


Tickets - $30 - $35
