The Waifs & Mia Dyson: Two acts who broke onto the scene at the same time are coming back together tonight as part of their 16 stop tour tour together. This is bound to be an extremely fun filled evening with these true friends joining forces for the first time in a decade.

Thu, Nov 5, Enmore Theatre

Mick Thomas & Squeezebox Wally: Having returned from a recent tour across South Africa with 14 fans where they recorded an album of live bootleg versions of their most beloved tunes, Mick and Wally will arrive in Sydney for the second stop of a celebratory tour performing the back catalogue of songs they enjoyed re-exploring.

Fri, Nov 6, Petersham Bowling Club

Ayla: For such a young talent Ayla continues to astound everyone that hears her perform, with a commanding signature vocal style and slightly cynical yet poignant lyrics. Now as she releases her debut self-titled EP the youngster is set to kick-off a run of intimate headline shows tomorrow.

Fri, Nov 6, Brighton Up Bar

Sol3 Mio: New Zealand tenor trio returns to Australia this weekend to show off their recently released second album On Another Note. Bringing a unique, energetic, young flair to classical and opera alongside some contemporary covers, this show should appeal to a wide audience.

Sat, Nov 7, City Recital Hall

James Muller and the Jazzgroove Mothership: This weekend two different artists both on the cutting edge of their field come together for an exciting performance. Sydney’s Mothership Orchestra (which comprises of seventeen members, five saxophones, five trumpets, four trombones, guitar, piano, bass and drums) will hook up with guitarist James Muller. Muller is known as one of the most exciting and innovative musicians around thanks to his distinct sound and masterful improvisation.

Sun, Nov 8, The Basement

Tame Impala: Fresh off their recent #1 chart debut, Australia’s rock titans will be performing a one off party style show on the Forecourt of the Sydney Opera House. The Forecourt is one of the world’s most spectacular outdoor performance spaces which should make for an incredible show for fans of the group.

Wed, Nov 11, Sydney Opera House Forecourt

Sampa The Great: A little over a month ago most people wouldn’t have even heard of this Sydney-based, Zambia-raised artist who has rapidly won the hearts of fans. Already in extremely high demand to perform live, having recently supported Hiatus Kaiyote, fans will now have a chance to see Sampa and her eight-piece band in their own show.

Wed, Nov 11, Newtown Social Club
