Summer Nights

Toast the weekend at Gasworks. Watch the sun go down with a locally-sourced Pinot Gris in hand, with the condensation of each drop washing away an icy winter just passed. For two Friday evenings in December enjoy live music, local produce food and wine with the local community.

Share a picnic rug or gather around one of our picnic tables as personable folk, jazz and American groove musicians soothe your soul. Local cheese and smallgoods producers from around Victoria will have their wares available to taste and take home.

Summer Nights is a community and arts gathering bringing together lovers of Gasworks, of fine food and wine, and of emerging musical talent as we welcome the long summer evenings.

This event will run alongside our Open Studios event which invites guests to explore our Resident Artist studios. Combine the two for a delightful start to your weekend.

Gena Rose Bruce is a lover of sad eyed, bluesy pop with a touch of twang. She writes honest songs creating a sound somewhere near PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star and Patsy Cline.
Born and bred in Melbourne, Gena has been involved with the local live music scene for over four years, playing regularly in venues including the Tramway Hotel, Northcote Social Club, Some Velvet Morning, Caravan Club, the Wesley Anne and the Workers Club.
Last year Gena supported and shared the stage with both Ella Hooper and Felix Riebl on their national tours around the country.

Lisa Crawley‘s unique approach to writing and performing allows her to charm jazz loving audiences one minute, and command indie credibility the next; her undeniably catchy tunes are bound to stick with even the most casual of listeners. She boasts a back catalogue of two albums and three EPs, coupled with countless collaborations, tours, television appearances and acclaimed music-based projects. She is no stranger to touring, having travelled the length and breadth of Australia/ NZ as a solo artist and in support of big names in music like Paul Weller, Jools Holland, John Mayer, Simply Red as well as locals David Bridie and Holly Throsby.

‘A breath of fresh air, it’s no wonder Crawley has become one of the country’s most respected ladies in the game.’ – The AU Review
