For the next five Sundays, once you've rolled out of bed a few hours too late to get anything productive done, head along to the Redfern Surf Club for an afternoon full of free live music. With NSW singing and dancing restrictions now rolled back, the surf club-themed inner city bar will be presenting a huge program full of buzzed-about local artists from 4pm each Sunday. The lineup, which has been put together with the help of Redfern Surf Club's Botany Road neighbour FBi Radio, spans across genres from young up-and-coming artists to established Sydney standards.

Kicking things off on Sunday, May 23 is recent Kwame and Midnight Oil collaborator, Tasman Keith, joined by Ms Thandi and Mi-Kaisha. Across the rest of the lineup, you'll find Vlossom, the synth-pop project of Empire of the Sun's Nick Littlemore and Cloud Control's Alister Wright; beloved inner west rock group Palms; pop sensation MAY-A; and a night dedicated to punk and surf rock featuring Byron Bay's Mini Skirt alongside Research Reactor Corp, Satanic Togas and Gully Days.

The project is supported by the NSW Government's Create NSW Play the City grant program in hopes of supporting musicians, sound engineers, photographers and crew following a disastrous twelve months for the music industry.

Each gig promises to be an initiate affair, with Redfern Surf Club only holding a capacity of 100 people. Get down early and grab a burger or a selection from the bar's range of craft beers, tropical cocktails and natural wines supplied by P&V.

Tickets are free but registration is required via Eventbrite in order to ensure your spot.
