Time Out says

The global music channel is hosting a series of intimate live concerts

Gen Xers and young, musically inclined Gen Ys will have fond memories of MTV Unplugged. The concert series featured some of the world’s top musicians playing raw, acoustic sets live on TV. The show attracted big names like Aerosmith, Paul McCartney and Nirvana (whose set would become one of the last appearances of frontman Kurt Cobain).

If you’ve always dreamt of being in the audience, here’s your chance – MTV is hosting a new series of Unplugged shows in Melbourne, with studio tickets up for grabs. Last year Gang of Youths, Amy Shark and the DMAs took to the stage, and earlier this year Melburnians were treated to a spine-tingling show from the Rubens.

Next up on MTV Unplugged is Melbourne's own Courtney Barnett. The singer-songwriter is known for her wonderfully rambling lyrics and garage folk sound, as well as being possibly the first person in history to write a rock song about Preston. The six-time ARIA Award-winning artist will be playing a stripped-back set as part of MTV Unplugged at Howler on October 22.

You can register your interest for tickets by heading to the event website, with successful applicants sent tickets a week from the gig.
