MATT TONKS: AFTER DARK | Aunty Ed’s Katoomba

MATT TONKS: AFTER DARK // Friday, 7 January 2022 // 9:00-11:00pm // Free Event; No Bookings – Walk-ins Only // Venue: Aunty Ed’s; 122 Katoomba St, Katoomba.
You’ve hit the town for dinner, finished up, but not quite ready to go home . . . looking for a cold beer on tap, a cocktail, and a booth to sink into AFTER DARK? Aunty Ed’s has got you covered with HAPPY HOUR every FRIDAY NIGHT from 9:00pm, with a side of some of the best live music the Blue Mountains has to offer. To get the party started tonight, MATT TONKS will be dropping in for a couple of sets – come and say g’day!
The shows of singer & guitarist Matt Tonks have earned a reputation for a unique haunting power with his lyrics, songs and instrumental music leading audiences far from the beaten track. A two-time finalist for APRA Songwriter and Best Live Performance Awards (MusicOz Awards) Tonks takes flight into an often unexpected world of mesmerising, spontaneous sound. Matt’s latest album was a collaboration “Bird and Tree Men” with Sydney luminaries Jonathan Swartz, (double bass), Stu Hunter (piano) and Syd Green (drums).
In 2016 Matt returned to Europe and the US, playing solo shows at Ronnie Scotts (London), Paris, Los Angeles (The House of Blues), Austin and Nashville. He is a past winner of the Drum Media Alternative Artist of the Year (MusicOz) and was recently included on the ABC Music release “Under the Covers – Seductive Sounds for a Late Late Night”. His releases include Bird and Tree Men – The Flight Begins” (2019), Blend (2016) The Heavy Yen Project (Album 2014), Islands of String & Skin (Album 2013), Eat Yourself (Album 2010), Blanket (EP 2008) & Synaesthesia (Album 2007).

The Blue Mountains come alive ‘AFTER DARK’ at Aunty Ed’s in Katoomba. Like all retro basement bar & live music joints, the vibe is casual, there’s plenty of booths for you and your mates to sink into, there’s a crackin’ good kitchen if you’re looking for something to eat and the Mountains largest selection of craft beer is on tap and in the fridge. To top it all off, there’s a ‘happy hour’ after 9 pm and some killer tunes courtesy of some of the best live music acts in the Blue Mountains (and further afield) between 9:00 and 11:00 pm. We don’t take reservations after 8:30 pm, so just rock up (first come, best dressed), grab yourself a drink and enjoy a little nightlife in the Blue Mountains. Oh . . . and this is a FREE EVENT!
