Mr Snot Bottom’s Stinky Silly Songs

Boogers, bottoms, pop-offs and smells!

Hysterically disgusting kids comedian Mr Snot bottom comes to Gasworks Arts Park for four shows on April 4 and 5 during the school holidays

Fresh from a Best Children’s Event Nomination at Perth FringeWorld, Mr Snot-bottom delivers a barrage of tasteless tunes and horrendous harmonies co-written by the likes of Benny Davis from the ‘Axis of Awesome’ and Tom Bettany from the ‘The Beards’.
 
I’ve been very lucky to work with some very talented people,” says the show creator and star Mark Trenwith. “everyone had loads of fun coming up with some truly weird and ridiculous songs!’
 
With song titles like ‘There’s a Ghost in My Loo’ and  ‘My Head Exploded’ this symphony of silliness is set to entertain all ages.  “The show is very much designed for parents and children to share together,” says Trenwith. “It makes me sad going to a show and seeing kids at the front and parents at the back not interacting with each other. That doesn’t happen in my shows. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a Mum or Dad and child laugh together and share the performance as a family.”
 
A stand up comic with fifteen years experience, Trenwith has performed in many children’s stage and TV shows including Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, Ben Ten The Live Experience and as ‘Captain Starlight’ a super hero that visits patients at the Melbourne Children’s Hospital.

Mary Jane Exhibition

Jane Curtis

Jane Curtis has been living in and around St Kilda for the past 30 odd years. She was an art student back in the 70’s but went into hospitality out of necessity. 8 years ago she went back to her passion, painting. Back to school. Having had a number of exhibitions. The last being at the TITI Café in August 2017. She and her flat mate are having a joint showing in their 1870’s apartment in St Kilda.

She said, “We want it to be casual, colourful and joyful”.

”Mary and l have completely different styles of painting but we both use acrylic. We love the whole idea of an old fashioned/Salon style show and invite people to just come and see our art. We are excited to be part of the Arts Crawl and are looking forward to more events in the future.”

Mary Thompson 

A self-taught artist, Mary Thompson was born in Melbourne and recently returned after a 25 year hiatus.

Gifted with a small wooden box set of oil paints at age 8, Thompson began an artistic journey that would take her across the globe.

Thompson’s life, like her art, has been an adventure into the unknown. 

Her work is a response to the immensity of the landscape, incomprehensibility of nature, the inarticulate emotional self and above all the mystery that lies just beneath the surface.

A fast drying medium, acrylic is used to instantly capture, layer and rework the emotional landscape. As texture is created, even the original lines, colors and markings become a hidden entity, reiterating psychological process.

St Kilda Rocks The Bowlo for SKAC

St Kilda Rocks

Friday 22 September

St Kilda Bowls Club

Doors 7PM

St Kilda has long been a stomping ground for dirty, take no prisoners rock n roll. Long considered the home of underground rock and the place with some of Melbourne’s most iconic venues, St Kilda Rocks continues the legacy of St Kilda’s claim to DIY, grassroots approach to putting on live gigs and getting things done.

Local live music champions Suzi Q Dhol and Mark Entwistle in association with St Kilda Arts Crawl have put together a bill, featuring musicians from St Kilda’s past and present, to showcase what St Kilda sounds like in 2017. It will take place at the St Kilda Bowls Club, a massive supporter of live music in this town. For naysayers that say St Kilda is dead, have a look at this line up.

On the bill are new comers Ghetto Blaster & the Finger Bangers and the Dead Amigos proving rock is still alive and well in St Kilda, punk tribute legends the Peptides featuring iconic names from St Kilda musical past and present, Stackhouse with their cigar box blue collar anthem’s, and internationally recognised The Mercy Kills. This line up as well as the other events as part of the St Kilda Arts Crawl show that live music is still alive in St Kilda and how important the arts and artists are in the community.

St Kilda Rocks is part of the inaugural St Kilda Arts Crawl, a local event promoting the wonderful art of St Kilda and its artists over three days. Lay claim to being a part of history by getting down to the Bolwo or one of the other venues showcasing this incredible event.

Catch St Kilda Rock at the St Kilda Bowls Club on Friday 22 September. Doors 7pm, $10 at the door

Bill Tolson has morphed into one of the most prolific song writers in our midst.

In the last two years Bill has written, performed, recorded and produced over 50 songs and CD collections as a solo artist.

He has also attracted some of this cities finest musicians with his current band Bill Tolson and the Learners about to launch an album of Bill’s songs.

Bill has been a passionate musician from the age of 10. Through his school years at Caulfield Grammar he had the likes of Nick Cave and the Boys Next Door a few years ahead of him playing in the school cafeteria. Always the artist / entrepreneur not long after leaving school Bill opened and managed the iconic Greville Records, later to establish Rampant Releases record label whilst teaching Music Business Management at TAFE.  Eventually life, family commitments and business lead him into Real Estate where he stayed for 15 years.

Two years ago the life changing tragedy in the loss of his son Connor Tolson bought about a grinding halt and change of direction in Bill’s life which lead him back to his roots in music.

Bill will be playing at the inaugural opening of the St Kilda Art Crawl on Thursday night 21 Sept at The Vineyard 71A Acland Street, St Kilda

He will be performing songs from his latest album 50 Good Years, a passionate heart felt reflection of his personal journey back to music.

Symmetry’s Shadows Exhibition launch 21 – 24 Sept hosted by St Kilda Art Crawl

Poster design by Christine Ritter (Westside Circus / Theatreworks)

“We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.” – Werner Heisenberg.

It seems humanity is stuck on repeat cycle, spinning round and round with no real clue as to the true nature of things.

Symmetry cannot be broken since all events are one with the cycle of birth, life, death and resurrection. This is one of the many truths of our existence.

It is apparent that through symmetry, the Hidden and the Un-seen shape our daily reality. Or; on a deeper level, the collective experience referred to as living.

Time to Re-Invent Life through ART.

Meet the Artists – St Kilda Art Crawl launch 21 – 24 Sept

Symmetry’s Shadow Exhibition

Location: Christ Church St Kilda (Anglican), 14 Acland st. St Kilda

Re-inventing LIFE through ART, an ongoing therapy.

Silent intelligence, each soul’s higher self, speaks of a collective, a whole; the human race as one. In our hearts we all know this to be true, one only needs to apply thought. Pressure in the frontal lobe region may follow as a result, tension will subside with gradual use of the minds eye.

If you’re in disagreement I invite you to come along and allow the artists involved to persuade you of another outlook, or more accurately in-look. An in-look which becomes an outlook of the soul. Push the envelope and watch it bend, be like the reed in the wind, the one Confucius spoke of. The Hidden runs our lives, for most of us have no idea of our purpose of existance. Most of us hide behind invisible mask of our choosing.

Man is a walking talking paradox, who’s hypocritical abilities are of legendary status. At this point in humanity’s evolution I believe it is important to pause and take stock of one’s true purpose, lights, gifts and shadows truths. Together they provide the human halone with a third dimensional experience, according to information (thoughts) available.

Seems to me, one’s thoughts and intent should take precedence above all.
