NFSA takes a nostalgic trip through Canberra’s music scene

Barcham 30 October 2013


Who misses the Gypsy bar?

Sound Check sounds wonderfully nostalgic, and I can imagine there will be a fair amount of older people hanging around trying to explain to younger people exactly what they missed out on.

It’ll be fun.

Remember the Canberra live music scene over the past 20 years?

Sound Check, the new foyer exhibition at the National Film and Sound Archive in Acton, looks at posters from the period.

The iconic bands, the popular venues and the music festivals … they’re all there. Every poster telling a story …

Sound Check is free and runs until 5 January 2014.
