The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia has hooked up with Newtown favourites Young Henrys for the latest iteration of their epic summer music series Sounds on the Terrace. The vibrant schedule of free live music will now be blended with a celebration of Sydney’s craft beer heroes on the first Wednesday evening of each month starting from November to February.
What has become a mid-week institution for live music lovers over the past five years, Sounds on the Terrace conveniently coincides with the museum’s “Lights on Later” program, where the galleries stay open until 9pm, allowing Sydneysiders to dabble in some art before they head on up to the Sculpture Terrace to soak up the sounds of emerging singers, producers and DJs.
Kicking off the series this year will be dreamy electronica producer Matilda Abraham and ethereal vocalist E For Echo, taking to the terrace on November 1st. The rest of the schedule includes the likes of Ross Henry, Le Pie, Marcus Corowa, Danielle Deckard, Alex Gibson, Anatole and Grace Cooke, amongst others.
Young Henrys involvement will be as curators of the music program, mixing up some of their favourite bands with their best brews, including all the favourites like the Newtowner, Natural Lager, Summer Hop Ale, Cloudy Cider, and even their award-winning Noble Cut Gin.
