And so the Great Wheel turns to Summer’s Solstice once again, traditionally a time of endings and beginnings..
..Meanwhile, as the Queensland Electorate wakes up on Sunday Morning, to survey with bleary eyes the Government they’ll have landed themselves with for the next four years, down at the Croquet Club in Musgrave Park, the Water Rats prepare to wrap up the Poetic Language Business for 2017, with the a fabulous Bohemian Celebration; “RAP WRAP” to which you are all most cordially invited.
We’ll have Poets rapping & crapping on,
while Photographers will be snapping their shots, the Wit will be Zapping, your toes will be Tapping
to the musical tunes and tones while on the Big Screen the Art will be randomly overlapping Reality as it’s happening, trapping strange Visual Archetypes mirroring the Poets words as if in jest/ Yes, such synchronicities abound when you mix & match and Shake & Bake the Arts as we like to do. So come and watch the show and the Iron Laws of Observer Theory will have you affecting the outcome!
Appropriate Guests for such an occasion are none other than the Alpha and Omega of Architectonic Performance Art, and a veritable West End Institution,
returning with their own unique meld of spoken word and sonic landscapes to loop it up big time with the Poets & Artists of Kurilpa.
The original Trio are composed of
the Reverend Hellfire
(Words, Keyboards and Pyrotechnical Accidents)
(Bass, Viola, Violin)
and have worked together on a remarkable variety of projects for over thirty years. They produce a music both simple and complex; hypnotic rhythms overlaid with sophisticated verbal imagery delivered in the compelling vocal style for which the Reverend is renowned.
The TapeLoops are preparing to disappear to spend several months in their hidden underground lair
and recording studio to work on a number of projects, with the ultimate aim of Global domination. Thus this show will be their only Performance pending their re-emergence as the World Supreme Council, so don’t miss out on this chance to say you were there and gain future street credibility.
We’ll be giving away a rare copy of the Tapeloops
1984 EP “Fire in Heaven” as a door prize on Sunday.
The cover of every record was individually hand coloured by various band members and friends at the time, making each a unique artefact. This copy will be signed by all three ‘Loops, hopefully increasing it’s potential market value when you flog it off on Ebay .
Our favourite Mystery Musician, 21st Century Flower Child, Jem Sparkles will be returning to help us wrap up the year in High Style, with her groovy renditions of old Jukebox Classics & her toe-tapping, self-penned, Sure-to-be-Hits.
It’s always a good day when Jem plays and all we can say for certain is that the World would be a better place if Jem (and musicians like her) was able to spend more time playing music and less time having to wait on tables.
Up on the Big Screen of the Virtual Gallery, Visual Arts Director Shane K will be showing highlights from the 20th century artistic genius Paul Klee, whose vivid visions used a kind of child-like archetypal imagery both entrancing yet also at times disturbing.
Mr K as usual, will also deliver a short talk on Klee’s Art & Influence for the audience’s edification.
MASTER OF CEREMONIES
for the occasion is the ever suave
returning after his stint as last month’s Mystery Musician, when he appeared in his guise as FREE LUNA. Be sure to catch FREE LUNA, or his other musical manifestation TIGER BEAT, at every available opportunity. Eclectic, quirky, fun, Cam’s musical prowess matches his skilled Word-smithery.
And as always there will be two Open Mic sessions for you to speak/rap/sing or mime your words,
Free Food & Refreshment, Friendly Company, Free On-site Parking and the beautiful environs of sacred Musgrave Park to enjoy.
Be sure to be there!.
The price on the door is a mere $5,
or $4 for KICI members.
The Water Rats supply the food for these events. While we encourage the community-minded to bring a plate or a bottle or a packet of something nice to share at the feast, we would mainly encourage you just to attend. That’s the Important thing.
