NGV International has just dropped the new Friday Nights lineup, and, this year, it's taken a jazzier route. In an effort to link the music with the art on display during the NGV's huge new Masterworks from MoMA exhibition (which kicks off on June 8), this season's programming will focus on the sounds of New York City. Expect lots of jazz, gospel hip hop and funk from a stream of international and local musicians each Friday night from June 15 until October 5.

Australia's Remi, local group Cookin' on Three Burners and Zimbabwean R&B musician Thando are just a few of the names on the winter/spring roster, which will be rounded out with a performance from Brooklyn-cased jazz trumpeter Mourice Brown. Throw after-dark gallery access and killer food and beverage options into the mix, and the cold winter nights suddenly look a lot more appealing.
