Southwest Sound by the Sea


South Regional Tafe, along with the City of Busselton Youth Services are presenting for Make Music Day a show of experimental music making in the incredible Youth Precinct Centre on the Busselton Foreshore.

In the 1st every year of running Music Industry at the Busselton Campus, songs have been made, creativity shared and souls lifted by the joy of music making.

With this in mind the Certificate II Music Industry students invite you to come to the space to watch them perform, and to see how a full live sound setup and PA comes to life.

Expect performances by solo performers Josephine Murray-Kilkenny, Olivia Avery and Baylea Hodges, as well as performances by young rockers Midnight Sun, and Avant Garde pop outfit Toxic Clover.

If watching young musicians project sounds through the town and out to sea wasn’t enough, there will also be a special performance of meditative music performed live by Sound Relaxation (Ute Coleman).

Please feel free to pop your head in, ask questions and to get involved. If come around lunchtime lecturer Chris Archibald (Chris Archee) will even give you a lesson on how to drop tracks on the DJ decks!

See you there.

The Newsagency Presents…


The Newsagency is Sydney’s cosiest live music venue, situated a stone’s throw from Parramatta Road, in Annandale. We have been operating since July 2017 in our current format, and we are proud to be artist focused and independantly operated.

We are also very proud to present to you 3 amazing local musicians on #MakeMusicDay2018


Visually and sonically arresting, flower crowned crooner GOLDHEIST has been likened to Kate Bush, Florence & The Machine, and Ellie Goulding, bringing her songs and stories to stages across regional and metropolitan Australia.

Dion Condack

​Dion’s music career began at the tender age of 5, when he became fascinated by the piano. Fast forward to 2018,  his debut acoustic album of originals coordinated with the Newtown Performing Arts school choir in a combined choral work, ‘Suddenly’, is ready to unleash on the world’s audience.

Alison Avron

Alison Avron is a singer, songwriter, pianist, and Creative Director of The Newsagency. She grew up in rural South Australia and amused herself by singing in community choirs and touring with opera companies. Slightly manic yet completely loveable, witty and nonchalant you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone like her on the planet.

After these 3 performances, we are opening up The Newsagency stage for all and sundry! Come down, sinf us a song, and MAKE MUSIC!
