Final after-hours cultural event

MUSIC, art and food-fuelled, the final event in the after-hours cultural program, Granville Nights, is a must-see destination for all next month.

Held at the Granville Centre, a solo art exhibition by Dacchi Dang ‘Microdot’ will provide the backdrop to a great musical line-up including A.Girl, Thandi Phoenix and DJ Levins.
A.GIRL is the moniker of Hinenui-Terangi Tairua, a proud Maori R&B singer/songwriter, and an award-winning R&B singer and rapper who, at just 22, has captured the early attention of Australia’s hip-hop tastemakers.
She was nominated for Best Live Act and named Next Big Thing at the FBi Awards, has the most views for a female rapper on triple j’s Bars Of Steel, and has sold out her only two headline shows in Sydney including the Sydney Opera House for Vivid 2022.
“A.Girl was also handpicked by Baz Luhrmann to perform at the official Sydney film premiere of Elvis, in a bid to showcase Australia’s emerging answer to Doja Cat who had the break-out hit from the Elvis soundtrack,” spokesperson Rae Begley said.
A dynamic artist, Thandi is a Sydney-born, South African Australian who has a deep love for electronic music and a unique and entertaining take on dance-infused pop.
This is showcased not only in her solo work but through her list of successful collaborations with artists such as Rudimental, Sigma and Pat Lok.
“She has garnered a reputation for her outstanding high energy live performances and established herself as one of Australia’s best live performers,” Begley added.
With food trucks, including El’s Fried Chicken, plus family workshops by FLENK Collective and more, Granville Nights concludes on Thursday, April 18, 5-9pm; it’s free, with all ages welcome.
