Due to popular demand, Melbourne Museum is bringing back its exclusive late-night series of intimate performance and conversations this June with local pop rocker Ali Barter and South African-born Australian singer-songwriter and rapper Ecca Vandal.
Haven’t sauntered through the swinging ’60s at Melbourne Museum’s Revolutions: Records and Rebels exhibition yet? There is still time to immerse yourself in the era that made the weird and wonderful mainstream. From civil rights movements, to the first moon landing, The Beatles, Andy Warhol and the breakout of Twiggy.
Join Ali Barter on June 13 and Ecca Vandal on June 20 as they reflect on personal, artistic and cultural revolutions through song and story, lead by ABC broadcaster Jess McGuire. Tickets to these intimate events includes entry to Revolutions: Records and Rebels.
While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the 600+ objects that explore the significant impact these years had upon life today. Across technology, politics, film, music, fashion and consumer culture, Revolutions: Records and Rebels takes visitors on a magical tour through five years that shook the world.
Oh, what’s that? There’s still a few cheeky tickets left for our May late-night talk with Tim Rogers? Snap them up here if you’re around and keen to hear one of Australia’s music icons chat about how the late ’60s influenced his life and approach to songwriting.
