If you were at Ambush Gallery last night, you witnessed the merging of two worlds. The joining of two legions of fans unique in taste and inclination, but exactly the same in warmth of spirit. And it was all thanks to local muso legends Skegss and arthouse-extraordinaire Jack Irvine, who offered a multi-dimensional experience that showed off the most recent artworks from Irvine set to the soundtrack of the Skegss’ new album Rehearsal (out today). All of the above were on deck to celebrate the dual-launch as well, mingling and sharing a good old Bev with family, friends and fans as they broke down the traditional artist-fan relationship.
Notable moments of the night involved a couple of spontaneous mini-dance floors (COVID-safe of course), appearances from local musos Ruby Fields and The Lazy Eyes, and of course, watching punters absolutely go to town on the mini packets of Shapes and chips that every kid took to school at one time or another (some of us still do and that’s totally okay).
Whether you were indulging in the many drinks on offer, adding to audience-driven art pieces or head-banging your absolute ass off to Skegss’ new classic, there was a little something for everyone at Ambush gallery last night, and it was without a doubt one of the most killer launches in recent memory. Get caught up on all the action via the gallery above, and check out some intimate footage of the night below.
