Pioneering female guitarist Penny Ikinger began her musical journey in Sydney’s Wet Taxis in the 1980s, alongside the late Louis Tillett. Since then, she’s collaborated with an eclectic range of musicians in Australia including Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), Kim Salmon, Sacred Cowboys, Charlie Owen, Dave Graney, Clare Moore, and overseas with Dimi Dero (France), Vinz Guilluy (France), Masami Kawaguchi (Japan) and Donovan’s Brain (USA).

Penny made her Smiths Alternative debut in December 2023 as a solo artist, supporting Charlie Owen in a show that sold out. She’s returning on Sunday, February 25 with her full band Penny Ikinger’s Marbles to showcase her latest album, “Travels and Travails”, a mesmerising collection covering her enthralling career.

Penny Ikinger’s Marbles are an intense, swirling combination of psychedelic guitars painting vivid sonic pictures. Support for this special show will be locals Transista Groove and it starts at 7pm.
