Across three weeks, Darlinghurst Theatre Company is transforming into a live music venue and hosting some of the country's most exciting young performers.
For three weeks, Darlinghurst Theatre Company is transforming from a CBD hub for theatre, arts and cabaret into a live music haven, hosting a series of performances from some of the country's most exciting queer and gender-diverse musicians.
Heading up the roster of boundary-pushing talent on opening night is local rapper JamarzOnMarz who made headlines in 2020 for speaking out against the policing of Black hairstyles in Australian school uniform codes. Also on the lineup: Charli XCX collaborator Banoffee and a slew of local talents including imbi, Okenyo and Huck Hastings, who will be launching his debut album as part of the program.
Each night of the Darlo Sessions will feature a 7pm and a 9pm session. Tickets start at $35, but if you're looking for a jam-packed night of live music, you can purchase a double bill ticket to see both sessions for the reduced price of $76.50. Four tickets from each session are also reserved as part of a 'pay what you can' system for those who may face social barriers to attending.
To complete the night, make sure make time to enjoy theatre company's summer menu courtesy of Two Trout Restaurant, featuring a selection of snacks and cheese, as well as ocean trout rillette and barbecue smoked chorizo.
You can find the full lineup and purchase tickets via the Darlinghurst Theatre Company's website.
