After catching Rone's exhibition earlier in the week it was great to see his portraits of four of Gaultier's Aussie muses (Cate Blanchett, Gemma Ward, Andreja Pejić, and Kylie Minogue) on the walls in different parts of the exhibition.
After finishing it was time to watch Saskwatch perform in the Great Hall. The nine piece soul band started their hour long set with "Give Me A Reason." They played a mix of new unreleased tracks as well as selections off their two albums, including "Two Hearts," "Call Your Name," "Left Me To Die," "Born To Break Your Heart" and "Keep Me In Mind." Lead singer Nkechi Anele's outfit seemed a bit inspired by Gaultier, and I liked that two of the band members were wearing San Francisco Giants caps (they must have picked them up while in SF during the World Series). The band finished their set with "Hands," which had everyone dancing and clapping along. Overall it was a really great evening and I love that the NGV pairs their exhibitions with local and international musical acts on these Friday Night sessions.
