ONE of this weekend’s best gigs is something of a secret.

Four mystery acts will play in four houses, but you’ll need to book a ticket to find out who is playing and where.

House Music is a community event that’s been running for eight years in the Banyan/Princess Street area of Warrnambool.

The brainchild of local musician Anita Hoekstra, House Music is a “progressive concert” that takes place over an afternoon from 2pm in four neighbourhood homes.

The venues are all within walking distance and the line-up at each house is a closely guarded secret. All we can tell you is they are high-calibre musicians and represent a diverse range of musical styles.

A “wine and cheese get-together” will follow the concerts, which gives the audience and musicians a chance to meet as one group.

The event is a fundraiser for Tasty Plate, a catering service which provides all-ability job opportunities.

Pre-bought tickets are essential and can be purchased via janetmac7@bigpond.com or by calling Janet on 55624059 or 0409 624059.
