LIVE IN THE GERSHWIN ROOM // Alex Lahey brings her Best of Luck Club Tour to the Gershwin Room for a special Cup Day Eve performance!

Alex Lahey welcomes you to experience 'The Best Of Luck Club', where there's no dress code and you can check in any time you like. Irresistibly catchy hooks abound throughout this Australian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's assured second full-length with Lahey's distinctively candid lyricism giving a voice to millennial ennui. The ten songs on this record document 12 months during which Lahey navigated "the highest highs and the lowest lows" in her life to date.

Off the back of the success of her debut long-player, 'I Love You Like A Brother' (2017), which peaked at #15 on the ARIA Albums Chart, Lahey toured extensively both locally and internationally. "We had a tour bus for the first time this year and I bought this shitty acoustic guitar when we were in Portland, which is still in New York with my brother who lives there," Lahey shares. As well as "noodling around with ideas" on guitar while on tour, Lahey then set up Nashville for some intensive songwriting sessions. "I just locked myself in a room 12 hours a day, and wrote a song every single day I was there, and I think about half the record is made up of those songs," Lahey proudly admits of this productive period that triggered the concept for 'The Best Of Luck Club'. 

We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam people as the First People of this land on which we live, love and play.
