Francis Tait + Hannah McKittrick w/ Zac E Tea + Bumpy



On May 11, the retreat is serving up an arvo of intimate Retreat front bar shows. Free entry!

Francis Tait is a non pivotal member of both The Vacant Smiles and Squid Nebula telling stories and singing songs about being human and 21st century life through a wordy folk storyteller lens. If he’s lucky enough Francis is often accompanied by Hannah McKittrick bringing an air of class and some ripper keyboard solos to the whole thing. His Mum has had it up to here though and he’s gonna try and finish a couple of happy songs before this one.

“When Zac E Tea isn’t reinventing surf rock in Hobsons Bay Coast Guard, he’s serving up bossa-nova infused pop gems on his own. Last time I saw him his banter was lit and the songs even litter. Please dispose of all litter after show.” - James Lynch
