The Gateway Hotel and The Small Ballroom have announced their latest club night. PLUM is a LGBTIQ club night that will be taking over Saturday nights at the venue.
To celebrate it’s launch, The Small Ballroom has organized a massive launch show on Saturday August 13; headlined by Sydney’s Brendan Maclean.
Brendan Maclean is a solo singer-songwriter and vocalist with a list of accomplishments longer than your left arm; most recently releasing their outstanding 5th EP funbang1. He has toured with the likes of Amanda Palmer, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Darren Hayes. For the last two years he has been performing as part of Marcia Hines’ critically acclaimed original cabaret Velvet.

Joining him on the night will be Rachel Maria Cox, the non-binary artist from Newcastle who also dropped an EP recently. We premiered their video for ‘A Phone I Can’t Use’ earlier this month. They write songs about love, life and the pit of existential dread you find yourself in when you’re six hours into a netflix marathon.
Closing out the lineup is Daniel Turner, and independant artist currently residing on the Central Coast. Turner is the creator of the EQuality Australia Campaign and released their debut album A Heart Without A Home back in June.
