Art & Music @ The Basement

 TO MAX
I have searched for a phrase to put beside your name
but I have not found it
maybe there is not that phrase
so let us leave it at - 
TO MAX

-Young Men in Love by Michael Arlen

Spent Wednesday night at The Dirty 13 opening in the Basement Theatre. It was curated by the lovely Cleo Barnett and featured NZ street artists as a collaborative show which brings the outside in and celebrates an art form which rarely gets the praise it deserves. The art was so inspiring I think I'll have to go back and see it again...a few times!

The show was accompanied by spoken word poet Tourettes who blew my mind a wee bit with humour, intensity, thought provoking messages, and an impressive knack for stringing words together. Matthew Crawley opened for Tourettes with a freakishly nice voice and mellowing love songs with a pinch of politics. So good.

And to top things off we got to take hand selected books from the BMD piece (in the first pic). And that's where 'TO MAX' has come from. I urge you to check out some more pictures and a much more informed account of the event here
