Event description
A two-day vintage poster exhibition & live concert series to support Addi Road's food relief & CrewCare's roadie & crew support work.

About this Event

For two days and nights, Addison Road Community Centre in Marrickville will host some of the biggest names in Sydney's music scene. Sevenways Health Centre Bondi, in conjunction with Addi Road and CrewCare presents Open the Vault, a live music festival and vintage poster exhibition in aid of two charities providing vital grassroots support to their communities. On display will be a rare collection of local and international Indie, Punk, Soul, Funk and Rock 'n' Roll poster memorabilia that spans three decades.

Event tickets are for two-hour brackets over the weekend of the 5th and 6th of December that include entry to the exhibition held in Gumbramorra Hall, where Addi Road volunteers have been packing and distributing food hampers since COVID hit Sydney in March.

Each two-hour ticket includes the vintage posters exhibition, access to a bar and food vendors, a DJ and slide show, plus a live music performance. Ticket numbers for each bracket are limited in line with public health guidelines.

All proceeds will go to helping Addi Road continue its food justice work, providing healthy basics for people from all walks of life experiencing food insecurity, no questions asked, and to helping CrewCare's mental health and social support work for live production professionals and their families affected by this year's venue closures.

'By bringing great music and social justice together in the same room something good can happen.' - Bartley Melocco, Founder of Sevenways Health Centre

About the organiser:

Former production rigger and now traditional Chinese medicine acupuncturist Bartley Melocco has been collecting music posters since the early 1980's when he worked with some of the world's hottest names in the music and entertainment industry through Pollard Productions and Tripoint Rigging Services, including David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Queen, Prince, U2, Elton John, Rolling Stones and the Black-Eyed Peas. He has also worked on film sets that include Mad Max, The Matrix, Superman Returns, Wolverine and Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge and Australia. Bartley's interest in helping production crew and their families comes from experiencing first-hand the physical and psychological challenges for both crew and their families of working long hours in the entertainment industry, and now, as a health care practitioner, treating resulting issues such as chronic fatigue, insomnia, depression, anxiety that have arisen from long years on the job, poor lifestyle choices, isolation, venue closures and job losses. www.sevenwayshealthcentre.com.au

About Addi Road and CrewCare:

Based on a nine-acre heritage site in the heart of Marrickville, Addi Road is an independent, multicutural and grassroots community centre with a long history of social justice, anti-discrimination and support for arts and culture. This year Addison Road Community Organisation has provided food relief boxes for up to 60 different charity organisations and community groups, feeding up to 5,000 people a week, whilst diverting 20 tonnes per month of good food from going into landfill.

CrewCare is an organisation of entertainment industry professionals who aim to improve the care for all technical and backstage personnel and their loved ones, and those who work and have worked in the Australian live music and entertainment scenes. Due to physical incapacity, poverty, mental illness, decreased demand and a changing workplace, Australian road crew members are four to five times more likely to take their own lives than other Australians.
