Adalita’s reign as one of Australia’s most respected and influential artists spans almost two decades. Each Wednesday next month, fans will have the chance to catch Adalita in action as the Gasometer Hotel hosts a series of intimate shows in which the Magic Dirt frontwoman will play a sneak preview of newly fleshed material.
As Adalita herself says “ Very excited about this residency. I’ve got a whole stack of new songs I want to try and I’m planning a few little sonic surprises as well. On top of that, really excited about the fantastic local bands who are coming in to support. Its gonna be a nice little second home this March...looking forward to nestling into that dark, velvety Gaso stage and coaxing out the tunes...”
The release of Adalita’s eponymous debut album in 2011 marked the advent of a remarkable new phase in an already illustrious career that kicked off as lead singer for seminal band Magic Dirt. The stark and heartfelt album earned Adalita an AMP award nomination and an AIR Award for Best Independent Album. In 2013, Adalita’s second album ‘All Day Venus’ blitzed the music scene, landing her an Age/Music Victoria Award just a month after its release. Closing out 2014, Adalita delivered a stirring keynote speech at the annual AIR Awards and received an ARIA Award Nomination for Best Female Artist.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch Adalita in an intimate setting, each Wednesday in March.
