Special Event > The Grubby Urchins

Thursday 13 June 2019 > 6.30PM to 8PM


Be immersed in the oceanic environment created by Perth-based artists Erin Coates & Anna Nazzari in their exhibition Dark Water to experience The Grubby Urchins for a night of sea shanties.


Daniel Bornstein and Joseph Hillel call themselves the grubbiest urchins in town, armed with heady harmonies and intrepid instrumentals. The Grubby Urchins say “they wage their stylistic war on songs old and new, leaving audiences grinning in politeness and confusion and wondering where the youth of today went wrong.”


A unique experience inspired by art, this event will bring to life the tradition of maritime work songs.


Presented in collaboration with the Port Phillip Library Service.


WHEN > Thursday 13 June 2019 > 6.30PM to 8PM
VENUE > Linden New Art, 26 Acland Street, St Kilda
COST > FREE, Bookings required
