Once again BackStage Music has a new home! In 2019 we are in Sydney’s Inner West at the very funky ‘The Newsagency’ in Annandale - it has a great space set up with sound and lighting, plus they have a piano!! (Worth checking out if you’re looking to put on a gig). Oh, they also have a licenced bar!

The Newsagency is run by Alison Avron - a singer/songwriter in her own right who embraced the challenge of finding a suitable venue to present music and converted her vocal teaching studio into a space called The Newsagency. Fast forward eight years, with many moves during that time, and the venue has evolved into a place dedicated to showcasing Australian independent artists in a comfortable listening environment.

The Newsagency is passionate about supporting Sydney’s independent music scene and we love that!
