Gus Mini Residency w/ Franco Cozzo


GUS will be making her first appearance at the Retreat Hotel front bar for a mini-residency in November. Taking place on the 20th, GUS (solo w/ special guests tba) will be supported by Marlings and on the 27th, GUS (band) will be joined by Franco Cozzo

Come on down for a refreshing and sombre take on an indie folk, shoegazey daydream that will make you fall in love with her the minute she steps foot on the stage.

With their vivid folk style, and heartwarming delivery of their fragile, soft ballads, the Marlings' gentle and inviting performance should not be missed. Their expressive qualities are just one reason they manage to captivate and engage their audience, as they are sure to do at the Retreat.

Franco Cozzo consist of intricate, reverb and delay laden dual guitar work, jazzy saxophone melodies, thumping basslines, crashing yet funky drums and hazy vocal melodies all contributing to a wall of sound akin to 90's shoegaze with an indie and jazzy twist.


This event takes place on the land that belongs to the Wurrundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Massive special thanks to Claudia Chew for her art work ♥
