Time Out says
This long-serving music venue on King Street is back in business
The trusty Vanguard is an intimate live music venue and restaurant that has long played host to the greats of Australian and international music. It has an almost vaudeville décor so that the venue sports a New Orleans-inspired look. The gig list swings wildly across the musical spectrum, so one night they could be playing host to long serving blues musos like Hat Fitz, followed by Afro groove and then a tribute show to the songs of Neil Finn. It's a real mixed bag.
