Friday Nights at NGV
Died Pretty

Fri 25 Mar 16, 6pm–10pm
NGV International
Ground Level

Start the weekend early with Friday Nights at NGV, including after-hours entry to Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei, talks, food and bars, plus DJ sets in the NGV Garden and weekly live performances by international and Australian acts in the Great Hall.

Be part of the largest ever Friday Nights at NGV line-up. Running over eighteen weeks from 11 December to 22 April this series will showcase psychedelic prog rock to synth pop, indie, folk and electronica. Doors open 6pm. Headline act from 8.30pm.


It’s been seven years since Died Pretty last toured nationally as part of the Big Day Out. This was hot on the heels of their triumphant ‘Don’t Look Back’ run of dates where they played their highly acclaimed ‘Doughboy Hollow’ album in its entirety. While their comeback run of club shows and Day on the Green shows across the country have sold out this March, the same classic lineup of Ron Peno (vocals), Brett Myers (guitar), John Hoey (keyboards), Chris Welsh (drums) and Steve Clark (bass) return by popular demand to play at Friday Nights at NGV. The occasion will be THE final time to see the band perform a selection of their most loved songs before they disappear into hibernation once again.
