Music, food, wine and art come together at last
Just imagine. Live and completely unplugged artists performing for you in an intimate setting, surrounded by good company, delicious food and fine wine.

Looking for an alternative to pub-music or your average live music venues? You've just found it. And it resides in Adelaide's coolest cafes. It is: The Cafe Series.

If you'll allow me to digress, I'd like to share a secret. Just between you and me, I think that a quiet explosion of coolness is occurring in Adelaide right now. If you've read any of my other articles, you'll quite possibly find a little frustration at peoples' need to constantly compare our fair city to Sydney, with its buzzing atmosphere, or Melbourne, with its artsy-craft scene of alternative whatever.

But I've had a revelation. And that revelation involves Adelaide taking on a persona that is better than the both - our arts and cultural scenes are there, you just have to get amongst them. We have some seriously cool stuff going on. And not only do we have this buzz, we have it all wrapped up in a personality that is real and carefree and relaxed. I don't want to blow our respective horns or anything... (okay, I do, I love this city) but I reckon that Adelaide has come into its own as being a truly cool place to live.

So instead of complaining that there is nothing to do, get off the couch and check out some awesome stuff that is going on in Adelaide. One of them is the Cafe Series, brainchild of Alice Fraser from local scene-building business The Jam Room.

The Cafe Series brings all the great things in life - music, food & wine, cafe culture - together in a relaxed format for our enjoyment. It's had great success recently at Cafe Troppo with local artists including the likes of Abbey Howlett, Jordan Ruru and Dr Piffle & The Burlap Band. And nobody who attended can forget the kick-off at The Annex cafe in Glenelg, featuring local artists and Sydney's wonderful Jack Carty.

It's all original, local music at its finest. With completely live and unplugged shows, you can get to know some of Adelaide's most talented artists without the hustle and bustle of big venues.

The coolest part? Every month for the rest of 2012, The Cafe Series will be adding another cafe to the list of venues on the touring circuit for the series. Stay tuned to hear the next new cafe being added for September.
