If you want to get noticed, you need to play School Night.

The iconic music industry showcase series created by Chris Douridas and Matt Goldman, which launched in Los Angeles in 2010, has become one of the hottest small stages to play.

It began as a Monday night gig in the heart of Hollywood, and is now a hot ticket for tastemakers and emerging acts.

School Night has also proven a launchpad for some of our best homegrown talents including Amy Shark, Chet Faker, Gotye, Rüfüs Du Sol, and more.

School Night has expanded beyond LA in recent years too, with events in New York and Toronto.

Its next destination is Australia, with School Night to make a local debut on April 6 at The Beresford Upstairs, Sydney.

It arrives via a deal with Joel Siviour’s Seismic Talent Agency, and gets the full support of School Night’s two founders who noted the region’s impact on the global music biz.

“We feel that Australia has such a significant impact on the music industry with an extraordinary number of talented musicians, producers, and vocalists per capita,” Goldman said.

“The concentration is unbelievable.

“With so much good music and influence on culture, we’re excited for the opportunity to have an outpost there, ” he added. “Sydney, especially, is home or place of origin to some of our favourite artists and School Night alumni.”

The lineup for School Night Sydney’s debut includes flowerkid, Pirra, Yen Strange, and YNG Martyr. Tickets are free via RSVP here.
