SYDNEY'S TINIEST LIVE MUSIC VENUE
With a capacity of just 40 people, The Newsagency is Sydney's tiniest music venue. The BYO space is cosy, dimly lit and filled with school chairs,milk crates and a makeshift stage thrown together from the old shelves of it's former life as a newsagent. No bar ensures the focus stays where it should be: the music.
The owner, Alison Avron - a singer/songwriter in her own right - created the space in 2011 while trying to find a suitable space to release her debut EP. Most venues at that time seemed to put a lot of pressure on emerging musicians to attract hundreds of people. Embracing the challenge, her vocal teaching studio became The Newsagency. Since then it has been dedicated to showcasing Australian independent musicians in a comfortable listening environment and has played host to such artists as Lanie Lane, Marlon Williams, Abby Dobson, Cosmo Jarvis, NGAIIRE and Brendan Maclean.
