THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Mr. Silla (Iceland - Only Melbourne Show)
Emerging from her involvement with influential bands such as múm and Mice Parade, Sigurlaug Gísladóttir, aka Mr. Silla, has blossomed into a creative force of reckoning. Matched only by a truly honest and evocative stage presence, the musically transcendent ebb and flow of Mr. Silla is as breathtaking as it is life giving. The often ethereal sonic landscapes explored on her self-titled debut album, released on 12 tónar, are even more proof of what the creative hatchery of Iceland has to offer.
