Galactic Nights

Following an amazing performance by Brous in the first week of the program, Galactic Nights continues at ACMI in Melbourne this Thursday night with the wonderful Hello Satellites.  This might be the last time you can catch them this year, so come on down to The Cube at ACMI to see Eva and co, accompanied by visuals by Blake Byron-Smith and music by Simon Winkler (RRR).  Doors at 6pm with music until 9pm, only $6 from here or on the door.

There’s two more performances to come as well with Time Shield (AKA Faux Pas) on December 1st and Dream Kit on December 15th. It’s all part of the Star Voyager exhibition at ACMI, exploring the history and future of space exploration through the moving image.

This Sunday on ABC1 at 5pm and ABC2 at 920pm, Hazel, Tig and Blake from Two Bright Lakes and other artists from the Schoolhouse Studios will be on ABC’s Arts Nation talking about all things Two Bright Lakes, how it all started, where it’s going, who’s involved, what we eat for breakfast, that sort of thing.  It’s bound to be equal parts enlightening and embarrassing, we hope you can tune in to watch.  If you missed it, click the banner above to have a look…

And Otouto are taking part in Arts Victoria’s Unfold series which looks inside the arts community in Victoria. Their episode will be screening in the coming weeks on the Arts Vic website alongside seven other talented artists and artist groups.
