Running over thirteen weeks from 24 June to 16 September, enjoy after-hours access to the exhibition, music, short talks, food and bars, and performances by local and international acts. This winter, rock, folk, pop and garage punk are all on the menu. Doors open 6pm. Headline act 8.30pm.


Get greasy in the psychedelic swamps of rock ā€™nā€™ roll with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds. The legendary Kid Congo has garage punk swagger in spades with a founding member of The Gun Club and guitarist from the legendary psycho-billy purveyors The Cramps as well as Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

Their first Australian tour in January 2015 saw them sell out rooms across the country and playing the likes of Sydney Festival and SummerSalt. Enjoy a night of raw, sonic ambrosia featuring a heady mix of fuzz guitars, New Orleans drum beats and bass lines dripping with soul.
