Art show about local music venues and the bands that love them


This event has finished

The Old Bar plays host to an exhibition about dirty rock'n'roll bands and the dirty rock'n'roll venues they love. Photographer has lovingly captured the 'unfortunate lifecycle' of some of Melbourne's lost spaces, as well as those still standing.

A few special pieces also feature bands loitering at their favourite venues. You can ogle Damn Terran (The B East), Batpiss (The Tote), Mikeey Hew from the High Times and Silence Dead Silence (Cherry Bar), Ladie Dee (NSC) and more. 

And on opening night there'll be live sets from Ali E, Rich Davies and Mightiest of Guns.
