PENNY IKINGER is an antipodean rock maestro who defies easy comparison and definition. With her iconic guitar, the Pennycaster, she is a fuzz queen, sonic chanteuse and primal mistress of dark folk rock who wows her audiences in Australia and beyond. She will be joined by her deluxe band featuring Tim McCormack on bass, Jason McGann on drums, Sam Billinghurst-Walsh on guitar, Julian Held on guitar and Ryan Oliver on keyboards. Expect a transcendent performance that is both heavenly and wicked, transporting you to another dimension. This show will be filmed and recorded live.

CHARLIE OWEN is a renowned multi-instrumentalist who has recorded and toured with just about everyone from Tex, Don, and Charlie, to Paul Kelly, to the Beasts of Bourbon, and many, many more. This will be a rare chance to experience Charlie performing solo. He will play a clutch of songs that, without his existence, would probably never be played again. This exclusive show will be one for the ages. It will be drawn from his extensive and abiding love for his fellow fallen musicians, all with heart strings to St. Kilda.

GARETH SKINNER is a singing cellist who uses real time loops to unleash cello pop tones of the void. Gareth and his doppelgangers create brutalist pop that is both intimate and cavernous, like a blade drawn in a cathedral. His style embodies post-punk atmospherics with historically left of centre ‘musical traditions’. Gareth has composed soundtracks, such as Crackerjack; co-written the songs for the film Boytown; and recorded and toured extensively with bands including The Ergot Derivative, bzark, Disaster Plan, The Holy Sea and, currently, The Sand Pebbles.
