After blowing the audience away when she opened for Renee Geyer at MEMO recently, Lara hits the Ember Lounge with her own show once again bringing her delightfully weird and pretty songs from her debut album PINEAPPLES, GREENBACKS AND GLITTER IN THE AIR.
Reeling and reckless at the end of a relationship, Lara Travis went and did what she feared and admired the most: she became a stripper on Melbourne’s notorious King Street.
The door to everyday life quietly closed. And she descended into an endless, subterranean nocturne, where rooms and lives were swallowed in red and black chiaroscuro, suffused in smoke, cut through with a strobe, saturated in music and broken by flashes of glitter, diamantes and fluorescent lycra. Amidst a spectacle of embellished and augmented bodies, dramas were lived, night after night.
