5 Gigs This Week for Under $50.00 Each
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. This week we’ve got Octoberfest celebrations, a touch of indie rock, some hip-hop and cute electro…

How Much: $20 + BF
UNSW’s Octoberfest celebrations wrap up this Thursday with a huge night of music featuring one of Australia’s leading visual DJ’s; Sampology.
