J.A.M'S TOP LIVE MUSIC PICKS JUL 6-12

Sydney Symphony Orchestra - George Michael Tribute: Originally planned by the SSO as an anniversary concert marking 30 years since the release of Michael’s seminal debut album Faith, the SSO will now pay tribute to a star gone too soon with a 30-song bill of his greatest hits.

Thu, Jul 6, Opera House

Golden Vessel: Will bring his three pillars of music to Sydney tonight. Golden Vessel’s music has always been an exercise in combining beautifully crafted electronic production, soaring pop melodies and diverse collaborations.

Thu, Jul 6, Brighton Up Bar

Touché Amoré: Have returned to Australia to help promote their new record Stage Four. The new record was named both in recognition of this being the band’s fourth studio album and for the passing of lead singer Jeremy Bolm’s mother from cancer in 2014, Stage Four is a towering record, harrowing and unrelenting record.

Fri, Jul 7, Factory Theatre

Sun Sap: It’s been six months since the release of this south coast bands newest track but now they're ready to venture up to the big smoke with their signature honky-tonk quirks, intoxicating swagger and woozy sun soaked riffs.

Fri, Jul 7, World Bar

Allday: Known for being nothing but himself, Allday is an honest, charismatic and skilled lyricist with a contradictory combination of motivation and mellowness. Allday will be joined by Japanese Wallpaper, Nicole Millar and a soon to be announced ‘special guest’ for his biggest tour yet.

Sat, Jul 8, Big Top - Luna Park

GL: Are Melbourne duo Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson, who together create a thrilling contemporary spin on classic disco, funk, boogie, soul and electronic pop. This weekend they bring their distinct sound up from Melbourne to Sydney.

Sat, Jul 8, Oxford Art Factory

Clare Bowen: The Australian-born, US-based singer-songwriter-actress returns home this weekend. Perhaps best known for her leading role as Scarlett O’Connor on the US prime-time TV series Nashville, Clare Bowen is a ferocious and gifted performer who is especially enthralling in the live arena.

Sun, Jul 9, Enmore Theatre

WAAX: Vibe-punks WAAX continue their unstoppable momentum with both the release of their new five track EP and also a series of live performances which stops in Sydney this week to help fans get over that mid-week hump.
