Nishi Gallery, NewActon

65, an exhibition @ Nishi Gallery, NewActon

Monika Domaschenz is a Canberra born and trained, Sydney based graphic designer who works with a number of leading design studios and global advertising agencies such as M&C Saatchi, Frost, Moon Design, Clemenger BBDO & Imagination. The central focus and strength of Monika's work – for both commercial and private projects – has always been in image-making, primarily drawing and photography. 65, an exhibition are small acts of remembrance. By producing one drawing each week over 65 weeks Monika has sought to reflect on, and celebrate, her mother's life of 65 years. Each drawing is simply a unit of reflection – one moment in a journey with no final destination – the act of making being equally, if not more important to her, than the final work. Heart and tear motifs, continuously reinterpreted, become a visual record of thoughts, emotions, recollections and realisations generated during their making. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the artworks will be donated to support NeuRA's stroke rehabilitation research. This exhibition was created in memory of Monika's mother Wanda Domaschenz who passed away at the age of 65 after suffering her second stroke in 2011. The opening night will be held from 6-8pm, Thursday 1 May 2014.

CHANCE WATERS - The “A Transit Officer Beat Up My Brother So I Wrote A Funny Song About Him” Tour

I Forget, Sorry! is proud to announce that CHANCE WATERS is hitting the road this April and May for the “A Transit Officer Beat Up My Brother So I Wrote A Funny Song About Him” tour in support of his upcoming single ‘The Ticket Inspector’, with very special guest Brendan Maclean.

‘The Ticket Inspector’ will be the latest taste from Chance Water’s forthcoming album, due out in 2014 on Island Records. The single follows recent triple j favourite “Bonnie” (feat. The Griswolds) and is an extremely infectious, snarky tune capturing Chance's trademark sarcastic wit and combining elements of pop and hip hop with a dash of doo wop and dub. The song and tour are a love song dedication to a very special authority figure and his run in with Chance's brother.

Chance Waters has been labeled an “intelligent lyricist and a masterful storyteller” (The Australian) and “one of Australia’s brightest” (The AU Review). His highly acclaimed sophomore album Infinity (2012) was a staple on record players across the country, securing two separate entries in triple j’s Hottest 100 with “Young & Dumb” feat. Bertie Blackman (#45) and “Maybe Tomorrow” (#89).

The “A Transit Officer Beat Up My Brother So I Wrote A Funny Song About Him” tour will see Chance perform his highly celebrated set at venues down the East Coast and Adelaide, with very special guest Brendan Maclean coming along for the ride.

Event Re-cap

Event Recap: Glass Towers at Transit Bar

by Jen Taylor

Not even the rain and loss of Daylight Savings kept the dedicated from Transit Bar on Thursday night for the return of Glass Towers after their tour of America. The night opened with The Alternative, who brought quite a large crowd of followers. It was their first foray into the music scene with a drummer, having previously performed as an acoustic duo. They presented some nice acoustic guitar and solid basslines, and their final song (introduced by the lead singer as their personal favourite) was a definite crowd pleaser.
