For two nights in March, your plans can include checking out more than 100 motorbikes, drinking, tapping your toes to DJs and listening to live music. That's all on the agenda at The Motorcycle Up Late, because the Gallery of Modern Art is doing what it usually does whenever it hosts a major exhibition — that is, throwing a couple of huge after-hours parties.

Until the end of April, The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire is on display across GOMA's floors and walls. You can see the results everyday over the next few months, in fact. Or, you can head along from 6pm on Friday, March 19 and Saturday, March 20, wander the gallery, get revved up, watch performances, grab a bite and enjoy a few beverages.

There'll various bars around the place, so a drink won't be hard to find. On Friday evening, you'll also be able to listen to tunes by The Hi-Boys, Tia Gostelow and WAAX, with Black Amex, Lori Lee and Sweaty Baby on DJ duty. If Saturday better suits your diary, prepare for JK-47, Tex Perkins and Friends, and VOIID, plus Eamon Sandwith, Paolo and Patience Hodgson on the decks.

Tickets cost $34–38 for one night and $57–64 if you're keen on going to both. If you'd like to wear a leather jacket, that's up to you.
