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.

RETRO FUN: Mark An­drew as Austin Pow­ers in Le­gends Show­case and as Tom Jones ( inset).

Linda Marigliano.
