The Newsagency is a space dedicated to showcasing local Sydney acts as well as touring bands, & occasionally international artists. It started because I needed a space to launch my first EP and wanted an intimate, listening space to showcase it without the pressures of bringing a lot of people like the bigger venues around Sydney. Since opening in October 2011, the space has hosted some amazing performers like, Lanie Lane, Elana Stone, NGAIIRE, Miss Little, Brendan Maclean, Abby Dobson & Cosmo Jarvis (UK). We provide a comfortable, listening environment for any performer at any level of their career to present their original material. We don't have a bar because we'd prefer to make it all about the art and not about alcohol sales. (BYO is a pretty good vibe when listening to music too!)
