Top Parlour Gigs of 2016

As we come to the end of yet another exciting year of live music, let's go back down the lane of memories that was 2016 and revisit some of our favourite Parlour Gigs from the year.

Big Smoke at Em's place "Big Smoke are undeniably one of the best bands kicking around the traps of the Melbourne music scene. The lyrics, the harmonies, the on-stage banter, they’ve got it all and they’ve got it in spades. They stripped down their usual folk-country-rock setup, to a much more ‘uncooked rice in a bottle’ type vibe. And they even do that brilliantly."

Oh Pep! at Kat's place "While the dark beauty of their music kept us quiet and eager for more, there were many moments where the duo’s dry sense of humour broke the ice, and the night became an entertaining and sentimental experience for everyone present."

Eastward at Wild'n'Free HQ "Eastward’s lose-yourself instrumental tunes got WildnFree‘s guests deep in the dreamy vibe, sitting close together getting their minds blown by all the beauty."

Tinpan Orange at Steph's place (and the first Parlour Tour) "Enter Tinpan Orange. A band that has been on the scene and on the touring circuit for the best part of a decade. An unbelievably talented trio; every one of their live performances I’ve witnessed has been as incredible if not more than the last. And this gig was no exception."

Jordie Lane & Clare Reynolds at Kath's place "Jordie and Clare Reynolds stopped the whole room in their tracks. Such powerfully talented musicians, songwriters and storytellers, Jordie and Clare took us through a journey of old and new tunes, including songs from the latest album, Glasshellland"
