The MCA's free music series Sounds on the Terrace is back for the sixth year running. And, once again, the gallery is teaming up with Young Henrys. The Newtown brewers will curate the music lineup and, you guessed it, add a healthy dose of craft beer to the drinks list.
The rooftop sessions returned on Wednesday, September 5, kicking off with Sydney hip hop/jazz producer Godriguez and seven-piece soul band New Venusians. The last after-dark session for 2018, taking place on Wednesday, December 5, will feature performances by local Sydney acts Not a Boys Name, Fiction Writer, Ben Panucci, Froyo and China Beach.
It's no coincidence that Sounds on the Terrace is concurrent with the MCA's Lights on Later program either. In between sipping on Young Henrys' summery The Lagertia cocktail — a combination of beer and tequila — and snacking on tostadas created by the MCA Cafe, you can take a wander through the gallery, which, until March 3, 3019, will house an Australian-first retrospective of famed South African photographer David Goldblatt's works.
While Wednesday, December 5, signals the end of Sounds on the Terrace for 2018, it'll be back in early 2019 — we'll update you with more information soon.
