Darlinghurst 1978-79 was a hive of groundbreaking music. Ed Kuepper's first band, The Saints, tore up the music world. It's a tradition that he's carried with The Aints!, one of the most dynamic rock & roll combos of the current era.
The Flaming Hands have come out of hibernation with their magnificent rock & soul delivered by Julie Mostyn with Warwick Gilbert on bass, Jeff Sullivan and Cub Calloway playing guitar, Phil Hall on horns and Barton Price drumming.
The Shy Impostors were a critical part of the post-Funhouse Sydney. Penny Ward was one of the first women rock & roll songswriters in this country and is backed by Sunnyboys Pete Oxley and Richard Burgman with Lipstick Killer's Michael Charles. "Where is the Professor? We need him now," Chris Bailey sang and the Professors delivered. They are back with the single "Go Out Tonight". This is a bill never to be repeated and not to be missed.

GIRLS IN OUR TOWN
In 1979/80, a remarkable concert All Together Now, including many of the leading women of the 70’s music scene, toured the country to strong acclaim. It starred Jeannie Lewis, one of the foremost singer-songwriters in Australia; Margret RoadKnight, long recognised as one of our finest blues singers; Janie Conway-Herron, a founding member of popular 1970’s band Stiletto; and Jan Cornall and Elizabeth Drake, creators of the hit musical cabaret Failing in Love Again, a witty take on the sexual revolution. They will be joined by newcomers Shayna Karlin, a member of the early ground-breaking group Extradition and lead singer in the early 70’s withthe iconic band Tully, and leading cabaret and blues artist Christa Hughes,to recreate highlights from that concert and to present some of their current compositions and work.
