Sabbatical presents: Abela/Baxter/Grabowsky

Sabbatical presents another 'evening of excellence'. Globe-trotting glass abuser Lucas Abela is making a brief stop-off in Melbourne for a collaboration with percussionist Sean Baxter and feted pianist and composer Paul Grabowsky. The set brings the three disparate musicians together for a one-time meeting of their musical minds.

Rounding out the night will be performances from the incredible James Rushford & Joe Talia, the dream-like tones of Scratchplate and the interwoven duo of Mitchell Brennan & Lachlan Gale.

Seven dollars gets you in. Show starts at 8.30pm, sharp.

Reviews for PIVIXKI and James Rushford & Joe Talia

A couple of new reviews have surfaced recently for our last two releases.

Firstly, PIVIXKI's explosive self-title debut gets a rave write-up from Bob Baker Fish in Cyclic Defrost:

"fascinating, frenetic, and really something unique. The duo fuses together effortlessly, constantly moving, not afraid to startle and get a little musical alongside their naughty beds of atonal discordance." - Bob Baker Fish, Cyclic Defrost

Secondly, James Rushford & Joe Talia's stunning release, Palisades, gets some love from Foxy Digitalis:

"This is a solid release, but I feel the last track makes this essential. 8/10" - Andrew Murdock Livingston, Foxy Digitalis
