Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen

Festival Club
Saturday 10:00pm
free (delegates only)

From one of Australia’s most magnetic live acts – Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen – comes a compelling new show inspired by a residency in the Snowies, exploring the dark and troubled stories of the many migrants who came to work on the Snowy Hydro Scheme in the 60s. These are the songs of the treacherous ghosts of our landscape, and the beauty and terror of a new world. From bittersweet dark lullabies to alt-country twang and Pogues like swagger, After the Flood has it all and is set against the backdrop of a vintage 60s era nightclub with the audience key players too.  It’s all pure seduction, and just when their music touches the shadows, it then journeys to the quixotic and phantasmagorical, surprising you into peals of laughter. If Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentleman show up in your town, all anybody will say is, make sure you get a seat.
