Darling James journey to their spiritual home for the second time since August to headline a night at one of their favourite Australian venues, Black Bear Lodge. While cutting their teeth in the bars and pubs of Brunswick, Victoria, each member of Darling James has spent formative time in the northern capital. Their namesake and songwriter James O’Brien spent many years fronting Brisbane then Melbourne based group The Boat People and in more recent years has found a role as sought after side-man, touring with Kate Miller-Heidke and Machine Translations among others. Joining Darling James will be art-crooner and previous collaborator with O’Brien, Edward Guglielmino and his band The Show. Opening the night is Sahara Beck, whose big voice and heart-on-sleeve lyrics have been turning heads on a recent national tour.
