Can underaged music fans attend MOTH shows?

The programme is directed towards a mature audience and our intention is to provide a venue where the musicians can connect intimately with fellow music aficionados without distraction (adult themes and the occasional course language may prevail). 

We definitely don’t want to turn away any budding young musicians from the opportunity to experience live music and rather than formulate a fixed policy on the admission of children, we would prefer to leave it to parents’/guardians’ discretion, however, all children must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times. Remember that MOTH is also a chance for some parents to have a relaxing ‘night out’ without the kids.

Children (17 years and under) members $10, non-members $15. See membership page and ‘buy tickets’ page for details. (These prices may be changed without prior notice).

Is there a dress code at MOTH?

There is no strict dress code at MOTH, but we ask that you wear suitable foot wear, i.e. no thongs etc as this is a safety issue.

Is there a smoking area?

Smoking is permitted in the designated smoking area outside MOTH.

Is there wheelchair access at MOTH?

There is wheelchair access via the side entrance straight into the band room. Please ask our staff for assistance if required.

Can I bring recording devices such as audio, tape, camera or film to MOTH?

No, you cannot record an artist’s performance. You would require permission from the artist and the venue as per the Copyright Act. The performance is “owned” by the artist. The final authority to allow or not allow such recording devices on the night is determined by the artists performing and not MOTH.

Can I chat when the artists are performing?

No. We respect MOTH artists. MOTH’s first rule is no talking while the artists are playing or introducing a song. It is a condition of entry that you do not talk during the performances. There is an area outside the venue if you feel the urge to discuss how good the artists are etc.
