Let there be rock!
Let there be rock!, a forthcoming gallery exhibition at HOTA Home of the Arts takes inspiration from AC/DC’s boisterous album of the same name.
For three decades from the 1970s to 1999, the Gold Coast was a hot-spot on the bucket-list of Australia’s live music touring circuit. With iconic venues like The Playroom, Bombay Rock, The Patch, Jet Club and Fisherman’s Wharf, the Coast played host to some of the hottest and most notorious international and Australian music acts; as well as some of our best local talent. From The Ramones and Cold Chisel at The Playroom, to INXS and The Go-Betweens at Bombay Rock; and Nirvana and The Violent Femmes at “Fisho’s”; this exhibition celebrates the heyday of hard-core rock and entertainment through stories, memorabilia, photos and footage.
Running 8 Dec 2018 – 17 Feb 2019
