Em Rusciano Films Her First Ever Comedy Special In Melbourne This November

Not even done winding up her ‘Rage and Rainbows‘ tour, stand-up comedian, singer, writer and broadcaster Em Rusciano has announced yet another show worth looking forward to. She will be bringing the glam and fury of her ongoing tour to Melbourne’s Palais Theatre this November. The event will be filmed, making it her first ever comedy special.

With a phenomenal career trajectory that has launched her from finalist and audience favourite in a hugely popular national talent show to hosting brekky radio and selling out shows around Australia, the glitter cyclone embodied by Em Rusciano continues to take no prisoners and tell no lies.

Last year has been huge for Em—she had a baby, turned 40, left a high profile job and had a combined 45 minutes sleep. There’s been next-level rage. There’s also been love. There’s been day drinking and breastfeeding…no, not at the same time.

With sell-out shows around Australia for the past five years consecutively, a best-selling memoir, award-winning audiobook and two Top Ten singles, Em is one of Australia’s most prolific performer—and let’s not forget she’s done all of the above and more while raising a young family. With a Facebook following of 275,000 fans, 32,000 on Twitter and 180,000 on Instagram, Em’s social media community is fierce, loud and passionately loyal.

Grab your tickets and be part of Em Rusciano‘s special filmed event this November!

Flume to headline ‘Listen In’ Festival this October

The award-winning EDM stalwart Flume will be leading the all-star pack for ‘Listen In’ performance at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium this October. Performing alongside him are four other hitmakers Diplo, ScHoolboy Q, 6lack and Slowthai.

Flume (born Harley Streten) rose to prominence as a teenager with his scene-starting self-titled debut in 2012. Featuring the hits ‘Holding On’, ‘On Top’, ‘Sleepless’ and others, the album topped the ARIA charts, garnered four spots in triple j’s Hottest 100, and sold out a massive Australian 40,000 cap tour. In the two years that followed, Flume established his name as a serious international contender, thanks to his compelling live shows and skillful remixes of high-profile acts including Lorde and Disclosure.

Last week, Flume dropped his first-ever collaborative EP ‘Quits’ with acclaimed rapper Reo Cragun. It features the already released ‘Friends’ as well as his latest track ‘Levitate’—which premiered as Zane Lowe’s WorldRecord on Apple Music’s Beats 1 program overnight. ‘Quits’ follows several new releases from Flume including ‘Let You Know’ feat. London Grammar and the highly praised ‘Hi This Is Flume’ mixtape and visualiser.

“‘Hi This Is Flume’ runs 38 minutes. It’ll be the best 38 minutes of your day, hands down.” – Billboard

“‘Hi This Is Flume’ (mixtape) is a reinvigorating work of electronic music.” – Mother Jones

Debuted in NZ last September 2018, ‘Listen In’ is the offshoot festivity of the annual Australian dance and hip-hop celebration known as ‘Listen Out’. It’s a festival known and respected for its well-curated lineups featuring the hottest headliners of hip-hop and electronic music.
