Wed 21st February: Tom & the Cartoonists (Residency) & Amy Flight - From 8pm - Free!

It’s time for Tom's first ever musical residency, at none other than the always excellent Ringo Barr! There will be some brand new tunes, old favourites, B-sides and maybe even a cover or two thrown in for good measure.

Tom and the Cartoonists combine kooky Jonathan Richman-esque lyrics, with upbeat riffs reminiscent of Violent Femmes and The Hives. Happily hovering from catchy uptempo rock, to mellow observational numbers, to humorous pop songs.
Tom's shows are kinda like a bag of mixed lollies - they're delicious!

Beginning on Wed Feb 7th, each week will see Tom perform in a slightly different setup, ranging from solo/duo mode through to a full band show on the final week. It's going to be a fun month.

8pm every Wednesday in Feb!
Oh and it's free entry too. :)

The Jude Quintet is the debut performance of Northern Rivers originating young jazz musicians, who owe, in part their chops to high school music teacher Jude Magee. She was sick on the recorder and loved Sting and at some point or another taught all the members of the band.
JUDE is:
Lenny Moodie - drums
Merina Penanueva - keys
Lewe Tollett- bass
Mawgan Watson - trumpet
Jacobus Barnard - tenor sax
Please note that this performance will have nothing to do with either recorders nor Sting.
Indu Mulligan is an up and coming Jazz vocalist with a distinct passion for improvising, through her interpretations of jazz tunes old and new. Joining her will be Meghan Davidson on bass and together they will combine contrasting textures and harmony whilst having fun in the unique setting of a vocal and bass duet.

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.
