SUMMER SAPPHIC: feat. Baby Blue + Claire M Spooner

March 24, 2024

Sunday 24 March, 4-6pm

SummerSapphic is a fortnightly event series which is inclusive but celebrates queer women. The first six sessions feature an enviable lineup of musicians who perform from 4-6pm. Doors open 3pm, kitchen open till 9.30pm and bar open till 11pm. Come mingle, enjoy great food, drinks, and music.

Baby Blue are a prolific Melbourne band who are emerging with a refined sound, some fresh faces, and their first full-length album. Beginning as a solo project fronted by Rhea Caldwell, Baby Blue is now a fully-fledged five-piece bringing new depth and energy to the raw yet playful story-telling that first endeared them to fans.
Lead singer and songwriter Rhea Caldwell performs with an ease few can claim to possess. Their songwriting taps into 60s surf rock with a sprinkling of Americana and a healthy serve of indie pop. The result if a charming and considered concoction that’s been likened to that of Kim Deal fronting the Velvert Underground.

Claire M Spooner has been playing in bands for the longest time throughout Castlemaine and Melbourne. Claire is a multi-instrumentalist, she has had duties on guitar, bass and drums in multiple outfits, writing and singing songs for her own band in the early-mid 2010’s, she has since had a break from performing and has only performed handful of shows post pandemic, whilst she has recently completed an (unreleased) album, this is a rare appearance. She will take to the stage solo with guitar and voice.

SummerSapphic is held in our Popup beer garden which is mostly covered but still exposed to the elements. If the weather is extreme, we will go ahead in the lounge area inside the bar.
