Louis London steps onto the streets of Chelsea


So in breaking news, Sydney’s very own Louis London has had a taste of their song “This Night Time” featured on this week’s episode of Britain’s classiest reality television program, Made in Chelsea.

Although this show is not for everyone (i.e. reality TV haters…you are missing out!), the soundtrack is always top notch and to see Louis London make the cut is a great feat (be sure to check out all the Made in Chelsea episode playlists here). Although Louis London has a special place in our hearts here at Vinyl Garden, it is also worth mentioning some of the other Aussie artists who made it onto this week’s playlist including: John Butler Trio, The Jezabels and Jackie Onassis.

With stars such as Emma Stone professing their love for the show and thousands of viewers around the world tuning in on a weekly basis, this is pretty amazing exposure and exciting news for all of the bands involved.

Be sure to check out the Made in Chelsea playlists online because they are seriously quality – and of course, listen to Louis London’s track here:

Venue Picks: Upstairs Beresford


The words ‘Upstairs Beresford’ and ‘indie music’ go hand in hand with each other on Sydney’s Inner City nightlife scene. This trendy Surry Hills hang is another one of Justin Hemmes’ Merivale stars, encouraging local bands to ‘take up residency’ at The Beresford, such as Hey Geronimo, Louis London and SAFIA.

The vibe: You’re going to have a fun night. It’s going to be a chilled one, but you’re going to dance to some great tunes and get a really elated kind of feeling from the people around you. And if you want to take a break to hang somewhere, mingle, and chat for a bit, there’s always the downstairs option.

What to drink: They do some killer classic vodka mixes here (ask for a Vodka Sunrise), but they also have a fine selection of cocktails (if not a little pricey), including highlights such as the Salted Butterscotch, Mixed Berry Sling and Poached Pear cocktails. Find the menu to tingle your tastebuds here.

Who you’ll see there: Young professionals and hipster hotties.

When’s best to go: Friday and Saturday nights are usually a sure-fire win at The Beresford for great live music, but it’s also worth knowing that they have $5 Happy Hour on every day from 5-7pm for some nice chilled drinks after work or uni.
