Tom Lee-Richards in the Tree
Madness is the new single by Tom Lee-Richards, an offering that is both raw and strikingly honest. The themes of beauty and introspection captured in Madness combined with Lee-Richards’s velvet voice are enough to melt the hardest of hearts. Madness is about the tension of ownership and blame when it comes to negotiating relationships.
Catch Tom live on Friday at the Treehouse in Belongil.

Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say Hello to your new favourite band. Otto and Astrid (Die Roten Punkte) are Berlin’s prince and princess of art rock and Europop. Following sellout shows in New York, Sydney and Edinburgh, the dysfunctional siblings are coming to the Byron Theatre. Since their last Australian tour, Otto and Astrid have toured across Europe with the iconic Amanda Palmer, had a smash run at the Soho Theatre in London and sold out shows in Belgium, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Hungary, Poland and Italy. They have also won another coveted Melbourne Green Room Award for Best Production, Cabaret. Orphaned as teenagers, Astrid and Otto found themselves homeless in Berlin before they dived into a rock baptism by fire (started by one of Astrid’s cigarettes) that catapulted them into European stardom.
Wednesday 28 September 2016, 7.30–8.45pm at the Byron Theatre. $26 (Age 15+).
