Artists in this event:

Gerard Elson

Gerard Elson is a bookseller at Readings St Kilda, where he convenes the non-fiction book club and chairs the odd ‘in conversation’ event. His writing has appeared in Island Magazine, The Review of Australian Fiction, Higher Arc, The Big Issue and Tincture Journal.


Brendan Maclean

Sydney slashy Brendan Maclean has always been labelled as a bit of a try-hard. He has tried hard in music, performing as a solo artist, in film as Klipspringer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, and in radio as a casual presenter on triple j for five years.


Will Cuming

LANKS is the enigmatic solo project of Melbourne musician, Will Cuming.

It is a mature new project that has allowed him to play freely with traditional folk storytelling within a modern framework; taking parts from Radiohead’s intricate grooves, Bon Iver’s vocal layering and Jamie XX’s famed dead space. His releases offer a refined sound, contrasting atmospheric synths with percussive guitars, and glitchy electronic drums with his distinctly laconic, effortless vocals.
