In 2011, rock-cabaret singer-songwriter Geraldine Quinn created a live concept album about local music; its hopes, history, histrionics and hedonism. The Last Gig In Melbourne won the 2011 Green Room Award for Original Songs, and explored liquor licensing, The Peel, getting people to cross the Yarra, Sharps, sticky carpets, pokies, Molly Meldrum, long-lost live venues and the many-eyed monster of multiple smartphones being held up at concerts.
This song cycle was first produced with assistance from City of Melbourne and directed by Casey Bennetto. Five years later, the album (produced with help from many generous crowdfund supporters) can finally be launched where it began – Bella Union.
Yes. Five years.
Put down your phones. It’s happening now.
