$45 - $60 + BF

Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with really heavy hearts we have to announce that Emily Wurramara has Laryngitis, has to undergo surgery, and is unable to perform at Bamarang tomorrow and will be postponing the gig until next year. To make up for such disappointing news, all of you who have purchased tickets to this gig will get access to an extremely discounted ticket for her show next year or if you prefer not to come, a full refund for tomorrow.
We have worked tirelessly to put this gig on for all you lovely people and have been feverishly working around the clock today to still make the show happen, and somehow we’ve managed to confirm a couple of very talented musicians to step in and grace the stage at Bamarang!
This is our new line-up:

Keep an eye out for further information later this evening.
After delivering one of the most acclaimed Australian debut albums of recent times The Hurting Scene, Melody Pool returned in 2016 with her stunning sophomore album Deep Dark Savage Heart.
Deep Dark Savage Heart painted a dark insight into a personal place in Melody’s mind; guiding the listener to confronting depths “I feel like I’ve really stood my ground with this record. I don’t ever want to make an album filled with pop hits. It’s always going to be me playing guitar and singing the truth”.
Following the release tour for Deep Dark Savage Heart, Melody went on to share a more literal account of her experiences when she featured on Australian Story in 2017.
At this time, Melody announced she was to take a break from music to focus on rehabilitating her mental health.
Now in 2018, Melody Pool has announced her awaited return with new music penning its way into her sets, exploring a new and re-birthed brilliance hinting at subjects of empowerment, resurgence and uprising.
Unafraid to tell it like it is, Lisa Caruso has gone from strength to strength as an Artist and Musician, and was recently named a finalist in the ‘Emerging Artist’ category at The 2019 Australian Women in Music Awards. Known for her unique vocal sound and distinct style of delivery, songs are packed with punch and drenched in raw emotion.
Fronting a well oiled band, Lisa has been performing songs from forthcoming debut album ‘In Feelings’, produced by guitarist Benjamin Fletcher (Sarah Blasko, Marina and the Diamonds). There is momentous breadth to Lisa’s catalogue of songs. Sharing relatable experiences, unique as they stand, arrangements hold a nostalgia to 60’s and 90’s indie eras. Sometimes rocking, and sometimes brooding, Lisa protests to first serve the story.
Singles flowing; the raucous attitude of ’A Holiday’ followed brooding ’Shake Baby Shake’, a song about invisible illness which earned its way onto popular American series ‘Good Girls’. Then came the impassioned ‘Borrow My Body’, luminous and romantic. To end what has been a busy and exciting year comes single number four, firing. ’Dream Lover’ is empowering, unrelenting, and explores a vulnerability that shows it’s face before kicking back into gear for the final round.
Emerging with her own independent artistry, BUMPY delves into a world of vulnerability as power. The front-line member of Melbourne’s Soul/Groove outfit ‘Squid Nebula’ furthers her solo expressions as an escape for all of the things crawling inside her mind. Thematically uncovering her truths as a First Nations artist, layering lush melodies, and delivering it with her hypnotic vocal style, this emerging artist is one bound to capture your attention.
