Sun 3rd March: Sidney - From 2.30pm - SOLD OUT
Indie-pop genius, Sidney, has recently released her sophomore EP ‘Sore Loser’ which features fan favourites 'Cool Girl' and ‘Competitive’.
The EP is a meticulous demonstration of alt-pop excellence. The introspective soundtrack guides listeners through the tender beginnings of a relationship, narrated from the perspective of an all-too-relatable over-thinker.
Labelled as Beat Magazine’s ‘artist to watch’, the Melbourne writer has been making a name for herself, recently supporting Angus & Julia Stone, The Rubens and Gretta Ray.
Delivering bittersweet melodies laced with vulnerable lyricism, Sidney has forged a unique brand of introspective indie-pop that wraps itself around you. Her recent releases have seen tracks land on numerous editorial playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday AU & NZ, Pop n’ Fresh and Equal NZ & AUS as well as Apple Music’s New Music Daily. Accumulating over 670K streams to date across her catalogue, Sidney has also received national airplay on NOVA and Triple J.
To celebrate the start of another big year for the artist, Sidney is playing an intimate show in Melbourne at Ringo Bar on March 3rd. This show will be a unique celebration with Sidney's closest supporters to delve into stories behind their favourite tracks, laugh over her dorky anecdotes and strip everything back to how the songs were originally created - something Sidney does best.
Sun 3rd March: HSP Collective & Shane Cole - From 8pm - Free!

Wed 6th March: Anna Morley (March residency) - From 8pm - Free!
Anna Morley is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer. Her music has been described as "an eclectic fusion of electro-acoustic vibes with ambient overtones, woven together by fresh minimal grooves". On stage she blends live vibraphone, keys and vocals with hand-made beats and samples to deliver rich layers of sound. Anna has released five albums of original compositions, the most recent being "Visceral" (2019) via Hymen Records. After living and performing in Europe over the last two decades, Anna has recently moved back home to Melbourne.A few words from Anna:
I'm looking forward to my Wednesday-nights-in-March residency at Brunswick's Ringo Barr and have decided to set myself a fun little challenge. A couple o' weeks ago my Dad brought over a load of dusty boxes full of old records, books and photos albums from the last 60 odd years. Some stuff is cringy as hell which is to be expected but there's also gold in there. I have found it so inspiring to sift through these treasured items which were also part of my own childhood, and find some way of celebrating them in my work. As I’ll be playing at a record store, I’ll have a lil jam each week with a different vinyl from the collection, which is still to be decided.. as I said, a joyful challenge for me and hopefully good times all round and round.
