Magic Dirt’s Adalita and You Am I’s Tim Rogers reveal shows at Melbourne Museum


As part of the museum's Revolutions: Records & Rebels exhibit.

Two icons of Aussie music, Magic Dirt’s Adalita and You Am I’s Tim Rogers, will be playing an intimate show at Melbourne Museum this May.

Each show will see the musicians reflect on how the late ’60s influenced their lives and approach to songwriting. The nights will be hosted by ABC broadcaster Jess McGuire.

It hasn’t been too long since either act has taken to a Melbourne stage. The Magic Dirt founding member made an appearance at this year’s St Kilda Festival in February, while Rogers recently performed a tribute to Spinal Tap alongside his You Am I bandmates at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Tickets to the gigs also get you entry into the Revolutions: Records & Rebels exhibit, currently running at Melbourne Museum. The exhibit explores the revolutionary music, fashion, technology and political period of 1966 — 1970.

Adalita will be playing at the museum on Thursday May 16, and Rogers is having his moment on Thursday May 23. If you aren’t able to catch Adalita in all her glory, Magic Dirt will be rocking out at Melbourne’s Reclink Community Cup in June.

Tickets for Adalita or Tim Rogers are on sale now via Melbourne Museum’s website.
