When I recently went to see The Falls play an acoustic gig at the opening of an exhibition at Blender Gallery I was reminded how much I love music, and intimate performances. So I was really excited to learn one of my favourite singers - Melanie Pain - is returning to Australia to perform alongside fellow French chanteuse Emilie Simon. And the great news is that a limited number of Industry Tix - ie, 25% discount - have just been extended to readers of Daily Imprint for the Sydney show!
