Goodbye 2016! We Rocked You Out…
Last year (2016) was — numerologically (gawd…that was a tongue twister! Does that word even exist? It does now) speaking — a year of cyclical endings (2+0+1+6=9 and 9 is a number of completion). So, it was befitting that my Rocking Art Series was to finally be exhibited in all its glory!
The event took place on the 23rd December at the funky Karoo Art Hotel and we all had a blast!
Big Shoes to Fill (I almost didn’t make it to my own show…lol)!
A big THANK YOU to my gorgeous, Templeton, for agreeing to do the aftershow with me — we rocked out to a song from each artist in the exhibition (unfortunately no video footage was taken but see the photo’s at the end).
The list was a tall order to fill but we somehow made it through and played to a packed-like-sardines audience.
The playlist went like this:
- Come Together (The Beatles)
- Yard of Blonde Girls (Jeff Buckley)
- Young Lust (Pink Floyd)
- Lately (Skunk Anansie)
- On a Plain (Nirvana)
- Anticipation Frustration (Templeton)
- Karma Police (Radiohead)
- Heroes (David Bowie)
- Uprising (Muse)
- Ending off with a Queen Pastiche consisting of We Will Rock You, We are the Champions, Radio GaGa, The Game and (because we are musical masochists) — you guessed it — Bohemian Rhapsody (can you see why I almost bailed!?)
Here are the photo’s of the evening starting off with the exhibition:
And here are the shot’s of the show 🙂
Here’s a YouTube clip of Templeton and me playing ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ — just so you can get an idea of what we sound like 🙂
