opened this week and as part of the exhibition, ACMI has also launched Late Bit - a weekly live music event to coincide with the Winter Masterpieces exhibition. Hosts of ABC TV’s Good Game
, Bajo and Hex presided over the evening of friendly game tournaments, roving performers and a live music soundtrack by DJ Supermelody, Mintendo and Late Bit headliner Catcall.
We caught up with Two Bright Lakes DJs
- Blake Byron-Smith and Tig Huggins - who also played last night and are set to perform again in the coming weeks. We asked them a few of their Top Fives to get us in the mood for some serious nerding out at Game Masters
and Late Bit's Levelled Up nights.
