Over 18s venue only
With Phebe Starr
Sydney’s Dappled Cities celebrate a decade of music with this one-off special event. The art rock band collaborates with Daniel Denholm and a unique cast of classical musicians – including members of Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Choir – to rearrange and re-imagine its songs in a baroque context.
The intricate melodies and complex layers found across Dappled Cities’ acclaimed four album catalogue will be explored in this genre-defying performance, which sees more than 20 musicians come together in a unique stage setting.
Imagine Brian Eno and David Bowie meeting Bach in the Cantina Bar of Star Wars.
“Synth-pop with brains” Sydney Morning Herald
Support act, Phebe Starr is fast becoming one of Australia’s finest acts to hit the scene. Having been compared to some of the worlds best such as Lykke Li, Florence Welsh and Sia, her single ‘Alone With You’ released through inertia Access has grabbed the attention of the Australian music industry elite.
“A young lass named Phebe Starr may well have the pop anthem of the year on her hands with Alone With You. This is a monster of a ballad, thumping through your speakers with crystal-clear kick drum marches and a swelling arrangement that outclasses many of Starr's soon-to-be-peers such as Lykke Li, Florence Welch and Sia”. – Dave Ruby Howe - The Age Melbourne.
