HUSH 16 is a collaboration between three of Australia’s most loved musicians: singer-songwriter Lior; vocal quartet The Idea of North with Kaichiro Kitamura; and renowned composer Elena Kats-Chernin with Adelaide’s own Zephyr Quartet. The result is an inspirational song-cycle that transcends all ages, inspired by Australian children in hospitals. If you listen closely you can hear the children’s feelings, hopes and dreams floating through the beautiful melodies and honest words. Hush 16: A Piece of Quiet, Her Majesty’s Theatre, Sunday 18 June. Bookings Bass: 131 246 Killing Heidi back again It’s been 20 years since Triple J unearthed the Hooper siblings as  Killing Heidi  with their disarming folk pop song,  Kettle. The band soon expanded into colourful teenage power pop and burst onto the national and international stage with their breakthrough debut album  Reflector,  released in March 2000. Anthemic singles Mascara and Weir  made  Reflector  a blow-out success and  cemented the work as  one of Australia’s most loved pop albums. Ella and Jesse Hooper reignited the flame re-banding for the 20th anniversary of Queenscliff Music Festival in November 2016, a perfect fit as it marked 20 years since the siblings first started performing as Killing Heidi. Don’t miss Killing Heidi at The Gov on Saturday, June 3. Bookings: www.thegov.com.au | www.oztix.com.au
