Dan Kelly at the NGV

Dan Kelly, originally from Queensland, winner of many ARIA Awards and nephew of Australian rock icon Paul Kelly, arrived to the Melborne music scene in the mid-nineties, to team up with some of Melbourne’s usual suspects such as Gareth Liddiard and  Christian Strybosch (the Drones, the Nothing Butts).

Last Friday, he was playing at the National Gallery of Victoria, as part of the Music Program of the Italian Masterpieces from the Spanish Royal Court. I could not recommend more to visit the exhibition –an excerpt from Museo el Prado in Madrid-, listen to a few good tunes, mingle with the cool cats of the Melbourne creative scene and enjoy a glass of wine from the pop-up bar inside the gallery.

The audience –myself included- enjoyed every single minute of the show, that was orchestrated with a jovial tone, with a few jokes and background stories for some of the songs. Dan and his band played for a full hour with great intensity, guiding the audience along their music journey, as if they had been on a long road trip that ended just minutes before the show.


Thanks for reading.
