See The Sound presents RIDE

The gigs we get to on the 86
By Zo Damage

The 86 played a huge part in my 365 Day Project with my car blowing a head gasket three months in, the tram became my primary source of transport in getting to gigs.

The January mini-installation at See The Sound pays tribute to this crazy and colourful tram line and just some of the venues along (and within stones throw of) the 86 route.

The journey begins in the heart of Melbourne at Max Watt’s in Swanston St, travelling North through Fitzroy, Collingwood, Northcote and Thornbury. RIDE features photographs taken at some of Melbourne’s most loved and iconic dive bar/live music staples including 170 Russell, Yah Yahs, Grumpys, The Labour In Vain, The Tote, The Old Bar, Evelyn Hotel, The Gasometer Hotel, Northcote Social Club, Bar 303 and Tago Mago.

All photographs available to buy at See The Sound, and order online at Free shipping AU wide. Includes tracking. Conditions apply.
