Scene News: Melbourne music venue favourite, CARAVAN, reopens at new location this Tuesday 3rd April 2018

After shutting its doors at the end of 2017, Caravan Music Club is now reopening at a new location, in East Bentleigh. The long running venue hosted some of the best international and local acts and it was a sad day when its closure was announced last July. Chris Franklin documented the much publicised and sorrowful closure, capturing the love and dedication that went into this venue and the music scene.

Now, in their latest newsletter, Peter Foley, and crew, stated that they were “excited about [their] re entry into the Melbourne music scene on Tuesday April 3rd.” Opening night with MICK THOMAS & THE ROVING COMMISSION is already SOLD OUT!

Some of the new gigs announced are alternative singer/songwriter and 90’s favourite DIANA ANAID who will roll into Caravan on Friday May 18th as part of her quirky and upbeat My Queen, and Better Girl tour of the East Coast. A rebellious firecracker, Diana pushes boundaries lyrically and emotionally and it’s so exciting having her at Caravan 20 years after her epic hit ‘I go Off’.

ROSEMARY LANE is a special winter solstice show paying homage to BERT JANSCH and folk supergroup PENTANGLE that he formed with John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee and other folk luminaries. This extraordinary music is rarely performed so please come along on Friday June 29th and experience a brilliant ensemble of Melbourne musicians led by Shane O’Mara. Following a sensational packed out show at Memo last Saturday night we welcome back JOE CREIGHTON and his incredible band on Saturday May 5th to again celebrate the music of Van Morrison with their INTO THE MYSTIC show
