In addition to our new weekly Spotify playlist of local acts we’re enjoying (“Music Victoria’s Listening To…”), we are also today launching a new weekly gig guide, compiled by Music Victoria’s staff.

Performing live has become the backbone of being a recording artist, so going out and supporting local live music is of great importance to us.
Here are some of the gigs we’re looking forward to over the coming week, including shows from Dumb WhalesMajor PlainsthandoPhillyGrace Cummings and many more.
