QPapaYandi

Aside from solo appearances around the usual dives, Brother Q can be found performing regularly with the fabulous Whoopee-Do Crew, who appear at West Ends’ People’s Park every Wednesday and at West End and Gailes Community House events.

Q-Papa-Yandi is also a regular reader at the Kurilpa Poets’ Open Mic sessions, where he has often impressed the crowd with his free-flowing improvisational rap/poems.

Up on the VIRTUAL GALLERY‘s big screen

we have a double- feature this month;

First half of the show we’ll be exhibiting the supra-surrealistic visions of expatriate Australian artist

Jeffrey Smart

best known perhaps for his grim, foreboding, urbanised landscapes, largely deserted but for the occasional appearance of lone, curiously vulnerable, human figures. Surely an amusingly ironic (if a little rusty) backdrop for the occasion.

After the tea-break the Human spirit soars aloft once more, rising from the Mud to the Stars, via the flittery, fluttery wings not of Angels but of Butterflies!

BUTTERFLY REVOLUTION

Local anarcho-entomologist Frank J will be

showing Butterfly & Flutterbug photos from his personal Collection throughout the second session, and will later expound on the Mysteries of these magnificent sea-creatures.
