Special Event

– Presented by Renny Kodgers

Spend a night with glamorous honky-tonkin’ gent, Renny Kodgers at ARTBAR this month. Best described by filmmaker John Waters as 'the bastard child of Willie Nelson and Carlotta’, Kodgers’ performances dynamically combine the best of southern American hospitality with the sweat and pulse of a Sydney summer.

Rock-n-roll rhinestone the night away;

• Grapevine! Step out a line dance with Janene Lawson aka Ms Bossy Boots
• Look into Renny’s crystal ball and dare to learn your fortune
• Croon and swoon with Elvis Presley
• Get 'arrested’ in a roaming performance by The Motel Sisters
• Keep the faith with satirical evangelist Rev. Tammy Lovejoy
• Boogie down to nostalgic TV and Cinema songs with DJ Fleetwood Crack

Plus DJs, themed food and drink, and loads more artist contributions to rhinestone your night. Art, but not as you know it.
