A great list of things to do in St Kilda delivered to you every Sunday evening

Live music is back

The Dog’s Bar in Acland Street is leading the return of live music. With bands playing on the patio and audiences seated where the cars used to park, the show goes on four nights a week. On Saturday night, Kim Volkman & The Whiskey Priests served up the good times live and local.

Music revival @ Dog’s Bar
Live music Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday nights from 7pm. Tickets limited.
With the musicians performing on the outdoor terrace and tables positioned literally on Acland Street, the Dog’s Bar is leading the St Kilda live music revival.
But as owner Gavin Breen told The Age, “it’s really nerve-racking and we are not sure about the regulations. Last week someone complained, and the police turned up. Venues don’t know where they stand.”
Check the Dog’s Bar Facebook for gigs Friday – Monday

TWiSK editorial
Hey Council and neighbours.
Live music desperately needs your help. Just as much needed permits for alfresco dining on roadways have been fast tracked, St Kilda venues also need permits to perform until a reasonable hour.
Let’s have live music back for summer nights (and leisurely afternoons too)  in St Kilda.

Glasshouse @ TheatreWorks
From 2021
Having curtains down and doors closed has not stopped TheatreWork planning a 2021 like no other.

Theatre Works will re-emerge with intimate in-the-round setting in 12 custom made booths that put the comfort and safety of audience and performers at the forefront, without compromising the experience at the theatre.

New mayor and deputy
After the dust has settled from your election of a new Council, the mayoral selection was the first indicator of the new Council’s tone.
As predicted in TWiSK, Cr Louise Crawford was elected as Mayor. Outspoken Gateway Cr Marcus Pearl was elected as Deputy Mayor.
In her acceptance speech, Cr Crawford promised to be curious, respectful and committed to listening. Fair, firm, empathetic, kind and accountable were qualities she wanted to bring to the office.
Cr Pearl promised to be a fair and supportive as Deputy.
TWiSK wishes them both well, because their success will be our success.
And with COVID challenging many of the things we hold dear, namely arts, music and community, we need a successful council more than ever.
