Let Them Eat Cake @ NGV Friday Nights

Josh Cake and Sandy Whittem are the upbeat 40s inspired jazz duo, Let Them Eat Cake. Josh Cake has written 2 hour long sets of brand new songs for the luscious vocals of Sandy Whittem, debuting at NGV Friday nights.

The first hour is a response to the MoMA at NGV exhibit - this is your exclusive chance to pair visual artworks with songs written specifically for thie exhibit. The second hour is an irreverent yet heartfelt tribute to the city of Melbourne.

NGV Friday Nights returns with exclusive late-night access to MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Discover over 200 key works, rarely seen outside of New York, by artists including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons and Cindy Sherman.

With a line-up of international and home-grown acts presented by the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, experience art, music, bars and dining inspired by the city that never sleeps.

NGV Friday Nights continues every week during MoMA at NGV, 15 Jun – 5 Oct. Doors open 6pm. Early bookings recommended.

"Whittem's incredibly pure, clear-as-a-bell, opulent vocals and Cake's technical mastery on the baby grand ... with the wittiest, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, all bearing Cake's signature comedic flair" - Ching Pei Khoo
