A favourite among inner west locals, the annual Mardi Gras Courtyard Sessions take place at dusk in the relaxed grounds of the Seymour Centre. Championing both established and emerging LGBTQIA+ artists, it's all about kicking back with a cold drink, some food, good people and live music. And it's free to attend.

This year, the series is wrapping up with a night co-hosted by Sad Grrrls Club on Friday, February 28. Guests are in for an evening filled with funk, beats and pop, starting with progressive soul band Kadimakara. The Sydney-based trio is all about jazz, soul, funk and alt-rock. Then, hailing from Melbourne, self-proclaimed Queen daddy will bring smooth beats and vocals — and lots of daggy 90s dad vibes. Finally, Triple J Unearthed artist RACKETT will deliver energetic, experimental electro-punk.

In between sets, Sad Grrrls Club DJs will keep the vibes going with classic R&B and hip hop tracks, while an outdoor bar and vintage games will keep you hydrated and entertained.

The free courtyard gig will run from 6-9pm, when the Seymour Centre's Mardi Gras Festival Club will kick off its final night for 2020, with DJs, pop-up performances and dancing late into the night.
