Written By Zanda Wilson on 03/22/2015


The music scene in Sydney is bursting with talent, but between the plethora of international acts and growing number of lesser known artists performing each week, it can be tricky to choose where to spend your time and cash. Here at the interns, we make it our mission to fit in as much music into each week as humanly possible. So check the best of what’s on this week so you can get your fix of live music without breaking the bank.

Gang Of Youths
