AltFest on the Coast

With a diverse musical portfolio encompassing alt-country, Italo-pop, rock and cabaret, the unifying factor of a Carla Lippis show is her powerful and distinctive voice. Join her and her band for a night of intimate cabaret, witty anecdotes and powerful music: love, fear, anger, sadness and hope transmitted straight from her vocal cords to your beating heart.

Carla has recently returned to Australia after 4 years on London’s West End, where she worked as the principal singer at the historic Cafe de Paris, and as the host of notorious nightclub The Box. Her international touring includes concerts with Calexico, Kiss, Mötley Crüe and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. She was featured as the ‘Diva’ in the venerated circus La Soiree. Her raucous variety show Midnight Marauders guested at Edinburgh Festival’s Club Cumming. Carla has released solo albums as Baby Carla and Carla Lippis & The Martial Hearts, and has collaborated with Italian post-folk group Sacri Cuori. She appeared in queer icon Jonny Woo’s All-Star Brexit Cabaret. Her Adelaide Cabaret Festival appearances include The 27 Club, Southern Belles, and her own Cast a Dark Shadow.
