Weirdos unite

In a previous life I spent just about every waking hour out and about at local gigs and I’ve had the absolute pleasure of seeing irreverent Brisbane genre-hoppers Regurgitator many a time. They’re such a fun band – you can’t see them and not be infected by how good a time they look like they’re having onstage!

Last week the band’s Ben Ely opened his first solo art show, Weirdo, and I can happily report it has that same wonderful sense of playfulness. Here’s a taste of Ben’s show, which is on at Lust for Life Tattoo on Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley until 31 January 2015.

One of my favourite pieces, which from memory was called Dancing Dead II.
