Live from YCK
YCK Laneways are taking over Martin Place for a night of live music and cocktails.
Earlier this autumn, Sydney's CBD got a new precinct. Dubbed YCK Laneways, it encompasses 15 bars located across York, Clarence and Kent streets — and it's turning up the heat this winter.
Across the 13-night program, the bars and their surrounding outdoor areas will come alive with live music, tarot readings, crime stories, DJs, drag queen bingo and 90s-themed music nights. You'll be able to boogie to Caribbean tunes at The Lobo, Latin American melodies at Esteban, live jazz at Stitch Bar and deep house in Since I Left You's courtyard. Or, wander over to Barrack Street's outdoor stage, where different musicians are performing each night.
The centerpiece of the two-week program is Live from YCK, a night of live music that will see three of Australia's brightest young talents take over Martin Place. Singer-songwriter Odette will be bringing songs from her albums To a Stranger and Herald to the pop-up CBD stage alongside breakout Tweed Heads rapper JK-47 and local R'n'B rising star Liyah Knight. DJ Levins (Heaps Decent, Halfway Crooks, The Dip) will be on DJ duty from 5pm to provide the tunes between sets, while a pop-up bar will be serving Patrón margaritas and Bombay Bramble Fever Tree G&Ts.
