Lethargic? Cold? Miserable? Don’t worry, a quick fix is on the way. This year’s Heart of St. Kilda Concert is the perfect distraction from your mid-winter blues.
The annual variety show will be held at the historic Palais Theatre and this year will be headlined by folk singer Paul Kelly and hosted by Brian Nankervis. Comedians Jimeoin, Cal Wilson and Tripod will have people rolling in the aisles while Melbourne’s rock goddess Adalita will get them up and dancing with songs from her critically acclaimed solo album. Ferrets’ frontman Billy Miller and Noiseworks’ Jon Stevens will revisit familiar, chart-topping tunes.
Other performers include Wolfgramm Sisters, Des Dowling, Russell Morris, The Little Stevies and Dave Thornton. With this vast selection of talent, there’s something for everyone.
Proceeds of the night will go to Sacred Heart Mission. Based in St. Kilda, Sacred Heart Mission provides food, healthcare and accommodation to those who are homeless and disadvantaged.
Head over to the NGV on Friday nights to see beautiful art and listen to some great live music.
