From St Kilda To Kings Cross

A completed PhD investigating the geography of live music in Sydney and Melbourne between the 1980s and 2000s.

Some 3D visualizations

Hi everyone – here are some 3D visualizations of live music performances by venue, taken from different street press samples in Sydney and Melbourne 1991-2006. The taller the symbol, the more live music performances listed in the venue.

The visualizations help emphasize the trend towards individual inner city venues hosting a larger share of overall performances, particularly in Melbourne. Sydney doesn’t have as many “super venues” emerging in the 2000s, but the venues with more performances are skewed towards the south, and (no surprises) particularly the inner west.

Sydney – a southern skew
