November is a pumping month for music in Sydney. For a gold-coin donation you can catch acts like The Griswolds and Stereogamus at the Newtown Festival. For those wanting to go hard on Aussie music, acts like A B Original, Tired Lion and Paces will be playing at new Parramatta festival The Plot. Ravers will have plenty to look forward to at Return to Rio, and thanks to Astral People, they can catch UK garage hero DJ EZ too. 

Or, if hardcore nostalgia is more your thing the Vengabus is rolling into town, as are TLC (RIP Left Eye), Mya and Nelly.
