Landmark St Kilda pub The Espy is gearing up to celebrate its much-anticipated reopening, and to show off its hefty makeover when it launches to the public later this month.
But on November 22, you can score a sneak peek at the revitalised digs before anyone else, when soul-blues act The Teskey Brothers takes The Espy stage for a one-off gig — as a sort of unofficial christening of this next phase of life (and an unofficial christening of the new-look Gershwin Room).
Off the back of a hugely popular Aussie tour through July and August, and a swag of international dates, the Melbourne natives return home to help launch what's set to be one of the city's hottest new live music venues.
The quartet will treat audiences to its signature soulful sounds, supported by powerhouse songstress Emilee South and her own explosive live band.
We'll update you as soon as we know more about The Espy's official launch date, too.
