Don't miss the heretical missionaries of conceptual rock at ACMI for one night only!

Join Danius Kesminas and his notorious Melbourne art band The Histrionics. Not quite a cover band, Kesminas rewrites the lyrics to transform classic rock tunes into anthems for the international contemporary art set.

The Histrionics will play hits from their two albums (Never Mind the Pollocks and Museum Fatigue) including Drip It (to Devo's Whip It), Appropriation (to The Beatles' Revolution), Video Art (to the Skyhooks' Horror Movie) and Nam June Paik (to AC/DC's T.N.T.).

Presenting a unique collision of rock-n-roll, performance art, pedagogy and humour, The Histrionics have developed a unique and idiosyncratic genre of "Concept-Art-Heritage-Rock-Covers".
