The Newsagency doesn’t waste time when it comes to entertainment.  THE SIDESHOW FESTIVAL is setting up stall for 2019, beginning the year with a grab bag of variety.

The Newsagency, called “a charming little live music venue” by SAG reviewer Mark Pigott, has assembled an eclectic  bunch of artists offering a unique view of life and indie arts in Sydney… opening Jan 5 with an out-of-towner.

River Matthews is one of the most loved new songwriters to come out of the UK. The Woodford Folk Festival team have brought him to Australia to introduce him to Australian audiences. He is joined by  the mad Scotsman from Alice Springs, Colin Lillie, in an intimate night of great original music.

SIDESHOW will then present music and comedy including ‘The Songs that Got Away‘  when the NIDA 2018 Music Theatre Cohort present a night of cabaret full of the solos they never got to sing! The Festival ends with the traditional Summer Mixtape on January 25. This is how we saw it last year.

Tickets are now selling for all events and you can see THE SIDESHOW FESTIVAL lineup  here and you can find out more about The Newsagency at their website and Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  74-76 Pyrmont Bridge Road, Camperdown NSW 2038

Brilliantly!  Here begins a really great set from a singer/ songwriter who has created an oversharing, let it all hang out character who dances like an aerobics queen yet can break your heart with a ballad.  Continue reading NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH: KATIE ELLE REEVE

Michael Wheatley – No Rest for the Wicked

 MICHAEL WHEATLEY – NO REST FOR THE WICKED
***ONLY SYDNEY SHOW***

Fringe veteran, genre crossing, quintuple threat Michael Wheatley is showing no signs of slowing down. If there’s no rest for the wicked then Michael is like the Devil with chronic insomnia and a baby grand piano blocking the door to the bedroom.

No Rest for the Wicked is Michael in his natural environment, behind a piano, with a bourbon, a microphone and of course, the Dirty Carpet Disco Band and some of his burlesque besties including Miss Kelly Ann Doll, Bettie Bombshell, Memphis Mae and Jazida. Join him as he shares his insights on lust, love and writing songs for people to take their clothes off to. Charmingly witty, tauntingly cheeky and with a voice that lures everyone’s attention it’s cabaret for the soul.

No Rest for the Wicked is funky beats, burlesque, live music and dad jokes.

“‘The carpet’s clean… we’ll have to do something about that,’ said Wheatley as he slid behind the piano dominating the Ellington’s stage.” ★★★★
– Brandon Taylor, The Australia Times

“knows how to put on a show as well as supply the tunes.”
– Sky Harrison, 11 Adelaide Fringe Shows About S*x You Need To See, Fritz Magazine

“Time to raise your expectations, and prepare to have them met.”
– Jonathan Carfax Absinthe.com.au 2017

ONE SYDNEY SHOW ONLY
7th December 7pm at The Newsagency.
