SYNTHESIA Word/Music Mash-up!
SUNDAY 25th November, 2pm
The Croquet Club/91 Cordelia St
Hi fellow Water Rats & Friends!
It’s our last show at the old Croquet Club for 2018,
and to send the year off with a bang we’re going to mix it up a little with a Word/Music mash-up featuring some of the Water Rats’ favourite local Musicians & Poets.
Amongst the diverse luminaries;
Presidential emcee, Cam Logan will be bringing in his new improved Theremin to add suitable atmospherics. “Papa John” Tracey will be bringing in his acoustic geetar to the fray (and playing some of his new Agit-Pop songs)
Reverend Hellfire will be on theatrics and keyboards,
whilst the lovely Linda Loop‘s trumpet will be heralding a new age as a host of local versifiers take to the stage to share their words & visions.
Adding to this multi-remedial melange, will be the Surrealistic Art of Joseph Cornell up on the Virtual Gallery.
Visual Arts Director, the enigmatic Shane Kafka tells us
that when European Surrealists fled the Nazi in the 40’s, they soon discovered that assemblage artist & experimental filmmaker Cornell (1903-1972) was America’s best native practitioner of that school.
Cornell is perhaps best remembered today for his “boxes”-hermetically sealed travelogues of the imagination.
So don’t miss this one! Come and join us in the air-conditioned comfort of the Olde Croquet Club beneath the shady trees of sacred Musgrave Park.
As always there’ll be 2 Open Mic sessions, fabulously eclectic company, free food & refreshments, free onsite parking, prizes and the usual kindness of strangers. Bring your words & musical implements,
or bring a bottle/plate/packet or something nice
to share at the feast but mostly bring yourself.
All friendly folk welcome!
Admission a mere $8 or $5 for members.
