Celebrating the end of lockdown, the return of live music, and the release of their Live Video Series, EMPRESS will headline The Night Cat alongside a killer fem-power lineup on the 27th of November.
Rising quick and fierce within the industry despite being in and out of Melbourne lockdowns, EMPRESS have sold out The Toff in Town, Colour Club, and the Curtin Hotel, along with four curated shows in a June residency at the Evelyn Hotel. Committing to prioritising female-identifying and gender-queer musicians when curating all of their lineups, as well as First Nations and BIPOC women, Empress have charmed their live audiences and now the energetic Electric-Soul collective is celebrating the female voice in new and creative ways, unveiling a new three-part live video series.
Joined by Squid Nebula and CD (live), this will be a show celebrating women in music, the return of live performances, and all things creative and sonically exciting. The profits of this performance will be donated to the Songlines Aboriginal Music Corporation, to support First Nations Musicians and pay our respect to the traditional owners of the land on which we work, perform and live.
