This Friday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day – an international day dedicated to celebrating women’s achievements around the world. From STEM fields to the Arts, there are women taking charge and revolutionising their respective fields.
One way we can get behind International Women’s Day is to support and celebrate Aussie female artists who are changing the music scene for better. Whether it’s experimental electro beats or smooth lyrical melodies, Aussie women continue to come out with creative and exciting tracks that are capturing global attention.
We could go on and on about Aussie ladies, but we want to give a special shout out to Jack River and Eves Karydas. Jack River has announced a ‘Sugar Mountain Ball’ touring nationally, with a 90s prom theme, supported by Eves Karydas.
Jack River has had an absolutely massive 2018 where she sold out shows across the country and scored three ARIA nominations. Her debut album Sugar Mountain is born from a deep personal tragedy, the sudden and accidental death of her younger sister at age 14.
“I made this album to be a grand and brilliant sparkly ballroom where you pour your whole heart out on the dancefloor to heal and cry and become strong,” she said. “This tour will be the realisation of that ballroom where everything will shine and melt and taste like sugar.”
The tour will see Jack River play in her biggest venues to date and aims to deliver the dream prom night we never had, which is something we can all dance for. So, crack out your favourite party frock and black eyeliner, this is a night you’ll be sorry to miss.
Supported by Eves Karydas who is a firecracker in her own right and hot off the heels of her own national tour debuting her album summerskin, both artists touch on themes of loss, inspiration, and new beginnings.
Looking to make a trip out of it? We’ve included the tour dates and ticket information below as well as some accommodation options for you and your prom after-party.
