Vivid Sydney has never shined so bright: The Ladies Network lit up Harpoon Harry’s last week, putting on one of the cultural festival’s finest events yet.
It’s that time of year again when Sydney is flooded with light and ablaze with a smörgåsbord of live entertainment. Coming in hot last week with a gorgeous selection was The Ladies Live from the crew at The Ladies Network with their 2017 Vivid line-up.
The Sydney-based collective has been spotlighting some leading female and gender-fluid talent around the country for the last few years now and are absolutely nailing it. Other than organising regular group exhibitions, they also curate interviews, features and reviews, an online art store, and killer live music events.
This brings us to last Thursday night, basking in some very zen vibes in Harpoon Harry’s neon lounge. The whole place has a 1920s Mexicana feel to it; carpeted floors, dimly lit and perfectly intimate.
The momentum kept up after some sound difficulties and the crowd warmly welcomed each act, dancing when they felt so inclined and thoroughly enjoying the show. The line-up for the evening featured appearances from Phoebe Twigg, GUSSY and Lupa J, with Aisling Kissane, Carla Uriarte and Ayebatonye Abrakasa on the decks.
