SCD Arts Friday March 28 2014
Sometimes this post is a bit late so to cover all bases and not miss anything arts related on the Sunshine Coast you should probs buy the Sunshine Coast Daily on a Friday (yes, on a Friday now. How is that working for you? Did you prefer the Saturday section? I know I did!). I post the column here anyway, and it’s just as well because that means I can highlight here for you the MUST SEE events each week!
This week, it’s Songs of Love and War for ONE NIGHT ONLY THIS SUNDAY APRIL 6 at 6pm at Noosa Arts Theatre. It’s actually a house concert. That’s right. Sam and I are hosting and you’re invited! We’ll have our Twenty8 oils burning and the cash bar open so you’ll feel right at home. Come on down for a relaxing, enjoyable evening with friends at our second home. It will cost you just $25 (or just $20 if you’re a student or pensioner) to catch two amazing singer/songwriters – Francesca de Valence and Emma Dean – in the one all ages show. The girls are off on a whirlwind tour so we’re very lucky to have them stop by in Noosa. Remember, to get your invitation email email@example.com and bring your cash on the night. Invitations available at the door so tell your friends but be warned: STRICTLY LIMITED NUMBERS. Cash bar from 5:30pm.
