Tuesday, April 12
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware Lime Cordiale has been dominating the soundwaves as of late. Brothers Louis and Oli Leimbach have tucked away a fair few accolades, including the most-nominated ARIA Award’s act in 2020. And while we’ll hit play on their latest album, 14 Steps To A Better You, any day of the week, nothing quite compares to catching these two in action. Between wonderfully chaotic energy and crowd-moving vocals, a Lime Cordiale show is the best party you’ve ever been to.
