A/C Art Space, Marrickville – Private message the host for the address

This is one of my absolute favourite Marrickville arts nights. They’ve had everything from sea shanties to yodellers. Its always surprising and stimulating with large, warm audiences and lots of cozy couches. I’ll be alongside some fantastic acts, the very interesting experiemental technological artist Pia Van Geldler, and a choir singing Renaissance choral music.
