From the late 1970s to the mid-80s, the Crystal Ballroom in St. Kilda was the centrepiece of Melbourne’s post punk movement. The Boys Next Door, the Birthday Party, Hunters and Collectors, INXS, the Laughing Clowns and the Go-Betweens all played there in their formative stages. The Ballroom also hosted international bands including Simple Minds, the Cure, Magazine, XTC, the Residents, and Dead Kennedys before closing its doors forever in the 80s.
For one night only, some of the musicians who graced that stage perform to celebrate one of Australia’s most important venues.
HARRY HOWARD & THE NDE – (feat. members of Crime & the City Solution, These Immortal Souls, The Moodists & Dave Graney ‘n’ the Coral Snakes and more):
