The Abbotsford Convent is fast becoming a popular choice of music venue, and you can see why when you browse the gigantic list of bands set to stream through the Shadow Electric Bandroom‘s doors in the coming months.

Baby-faced Irish native SOAK will bring her delicate, Celtic-infused songs to the band room on Friday, followed by Australian sing-songwriter Jen Cloher the next day – which is also, ironically, Record Store Day!

All Our Exes Live In Texas member Elana Stone is also joining the exciting April line-up, launching her third studio album Kintsugi.

Having already played host to Women of Soul‘s album launch over the weekend, a great bunch of acts are calling the convent home throughout April, May and June. Check out the bands playing below…
