WTF, Brisbane…

I’ve been caught in three different bomb scares in the past week, and just now four Blackhawk helicopters buzzed right over my house.

What the fuck is happening in this town at the moment…?

Two epic new street art pieces have just landed in the split tunnels leading from the city up to Spring Hill, right above Central Station. The top work is by Mik Shida and the second by Gimmick Spawn, which I must add won’t be fully finished until Sunday, but I thought you guys might like to check it out anyway.

Bleeding Heart to close

Bleeding Heart Gallery has sadly just announced they will be closing their doors “indefinitely” to allow the Brisbane City Council to carry out much-needed restorations to the heritage-listed building on Ann St.

Since 2008, Bleeding Heart has been an invaluable asset to Brisbane’s arts community, while staying true to their cause of helping those in need by donating all profits to local charities and organisations.

But all is not lost. A new venue will soon open - The Gardens Club, located in the City Botanic Gardens, which will carry on the charity-driven mission, however it doesn’t seem like the venue will be geared towards being an art gallery. 

In the meantime, make sure you pop into Bleeding Heart one last time for a coffee or beer, or come along to their final closing party on Friday 27th June.

The tenth annual I USED TO SKATE ONCE show should be pretty rad. Especially looking forward to EXIT, described as a “neon rave experimental beat room” in the old Blonde Venus shopfront below the main show. Check it out. 

Indeed.
