TUESDAY: Bellevue Hotel: Free Texas Holdem Poker from 7pm RADIO and TV presenter, DJ and musician Linda Marigliano was born and raised in Sydney but she will be making Flinders Social her home on Saturday night.
This pocket rocket has worked full time as a radio and TV presenter at the ABC’s Triple J. Linda has hosted the national Drive program on Triple J and has been a regular guest presenter on ABC TV.
She’s been MC at festivals, broadcasted live from national music events and hosted parties across Australia.
She’s also done a load of interviewing across different genres — Gorillaz, Marilyn Manson, Devo, Metallica, Muse, Air, The Strokes, Wu Tang Clan, Jerry Lewis, Sonic Youth, Cyndi Lauper, Jason Schwartzman ... the list goes on. Linda is not afraid to challenge an ego, high five a legend or tell the Black Keys to “shut the hell up and stop messing around”.
As a DJ, Marigliano has played throughout Australia at clubs, art galleries, special events and festivals, working alongside people including Tiga, DJ Mehdi, Daniel Avery, Ratatat, Simian Mobile Disco, and at after parties for the Big Day Out festival.
She is a lover of dance music – her sets dip between tight techno, crisp house, italo disco and everything in between.
After spending three years living in London, touring Europe as a musician and DJing around England’s hotspots, Marigliano has now returned to Australia and secured her booty clapping seat as presenter of Triple J’s national new music releases program ( 6- 9pm weeknights) Good Nights with Linda Marigliano.
She is a well- respected authority on new music and emerging artists.
Entry to Flinders Social is $ 5 before 11pm. Hood Rich and Constantine are support acts.
