Next Friday, November 24, head to The Joan for an incredible show by Australian musician, Thelma Plum.
Following the success of her first album, ‘Better in Blak’, which was nominated for seven ARIAs and spawned three Platinum and one Gold singles, Plum provided the first taste of new music last year with ‘Meanjin’.
Described as a love letter to the area where she grew up and was based during lockdown, the EP well and truly captured people’s hearts, and garnered multiple ARIA nominations as well as two places in the Triple J Hottest 100.
Before releasing her forthcoming sophomore album, for which she’s been busy writing and recording in London and Brisbane, she’s bringing her best so far to Penrith in an exciting new show.
The show is part of Great Southern Nights – an initiative of the NSW Government through Destination NSW and in partnership with ARIA, aiming to stimulate the live music, entertainment and hospitality sectors through a line up of live gigs from household names, emerging talent and grassroots local acts across key NSW districts like Penrith.
Thelma Plum will be on at The Joan in Penrith on Friday, November 24 at 8pm. Tickets are $55, or $60 at the door. For more information or to book, visit www.thejoan.com.au.
