Supporting Adalita on Saturday 27 May

Amaya Laucirica is an Australian singer/songwriter whose music combines the swirling contours of Cocteau Twins with the wistful melodies of The Go-Betweens and the lush, sonic depth of Yo La Tengo. Within this rich palette of sound resides Amaya’s uniquely captivating voice, restrained yet beautiful, with rich breathy tones offering touching moments of yearning and lament.

Since 2008, she has released three critically acclaimed albums, with her most recent Rituals described as “absorbing and mesmerising” (The Morning Star, UK) and “Bright and brilliant” (GoldFlakePaint, UK).

She will be joining Adalita on Saturday May 27, and we can’t wait to have her play.

Only a handful of tickets still left – Book yours now.

Phoebe Go supporting Mia Wray

Saturday 25 March is shaping up to be one very special evening! Not only can you hear the divine Mia Wray performing tracks from her stunning new EP, but we’re excited to announce Phoebe Go will be the support act. 

Phoebe Go is the exciting new solo project of Australian alt-pop artist Phoebe Lou (from Snakadaktal). It’s a heartfelt project that at its core, is full of hope. It’s about growing up, staying young, losing your feet and finding them again. It’s lyrically heavy at the crux, but there’s lightness for a reason. It’s passing Go and collecting $200 on the monopoly board. It’s the sweet milk at the end of a bowl of Crunchy Nut. It’s a NASA mission control countdown and Phoebe Go is the rocket.

Phoebe Go released an EP in December last year and she’s fresh from supporting Soccer Mommy in Melbourne and about to support Muna on their headline Aussie show  – and Mia Wray covered Muna for triple j’s Like a Version recently so really it’s meant to be!. We know you’re going to love her and it’s even more reason to make sure you don’t miss out on this show.

Adalita heading our way!

Jen Cloher heading our way

After an incredible night out with Parsnip and Ty Segall with his Freedom Band in January, there is a definite buzz around about The Sound Doctor. So we thought we’d strike while the iron’s hot and give you another awesome act to look forward to. Jen Cloher is returning to Anglesea on Friday 26 May with their latest album and tickets are on sale now!

Before we get there we still have a huge weekend in March to enjoy with Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band on Friday 24 March and Mia Wray on Saturday 25 March. Tickets are selling well so don’t delay in getting yours – you don’t want to be the one who misses out!

And don’t forget you can buy a Jeff Raglus designed Sound Doctor t-shirt when you buy your show ticket or anytime here. Well while stocks last anyway!

It’s hard to believe that it was five years ago that Jen Cloher (Ngāpuhi & Ngāti Kahu) got Sound Doctor audiences out of their chairs for the first time and cheering up a storm! We are so excited Jen is back with a new album to rock Anglesea once again on Friday 26 May.

Jen’s taut, terse brand of rock is charged with the static tension that comes with being an eternal misfit – they have spoken truth to power with the shrewd eye that only an outsider can possess. Admirers have naturally gravitated towards Jen’s incisive, generous songwriting and their first album in five years (the verdant and rich I Am The River, The River Is Me) is inspired by Jen’s powerful matrilineal line of wāhine Māori. It’s filled with fiercely political songs that are as much an energetic celebration as a form of resistance.

If you missed Jen the last time they were in Anglesea, you will not want to make that mistake again! 

“A modern day Patti Smith whose brutally honest, politically charged lyrics mark her out as one of the most interesting and important artists of her day.” The Independent UK

Celebrate Spring with Ben Lee

As Winter officially comes to an end, we’re coming out of hibernation and announcing our next round of Sound Doctor shows. Keep Fri 30 Sep and Sat 1 Oct free as we bring you a Spring weekend of music.

Kicking it all off is the incredible Ben Lee, performing an intimate solo show on Friday 30 September.  

Ben Lee is fun! Ask him, he’ll tell you. 

I’m Fun! is not only the name of his most recent album of pop gems full of songs with names like ‘Born for this Bullshit’ and ‘Parents Get High’, it’s also the mission statement that has guided him through an eclectic three-decade long career. 

As Ben himself says: “I’ve always put adventure as my first priority. Full-tilt, all the time. Fun is the unexpected. Fun is building something, burning it down, then building it back, bigger, weirder and better.”

Writer of iconic Australian indie-pop hits like ‘Catch My Disease’, ‘We’re All in this Together’ and ‘Cigarettes Will Kill You’, Ben is also a renown collaborator with friends and allies like Ben Folds, Sarah Silverman, Lena Dunham, Shamir, Christian Lee Hutson, Zooey Deschanel, Washington, Georgia Maq, Money Mark, Tom Robbins and Josh Radnor. He also runs a podcast network with his wife, actress Ione Skye, built around the couple’s flagship show “Weirder Together”.

There are basically no rules in Ben’s creative world, and his live show follows the same policy: Fun is always the compass. So join us for a night of music and lots of fun in Anglesea.

Support comes from Jan Juc indie folk rock musician Jasmin Adria.

On Friday 27 May Augie March perform stripped back reinventions of many of their best-known songs in a show that not only reminds you why these guys created the soundtrack to the start of the century for many of us – but also why they’re still one of Australia’s most important bands.

On Saturday 28 May the sublime songbird Lisa Mitchell adds Anglesea to her album tour list, performing with her band. Lisa’s music consistently elicits an emotional response and this will be one special show.
