Culture Shock Headlining Hereford's A CRISIS OF CONSCIENCE 2017 Punk Festival raising funds for Musicians Against Homelessness

We are pleased to come together this year with our local live music venue The Booth Hall and Hereford’s community of musicians, poets, DJ’s and artists for what should be quite a memorable fundraiser. It’s very encouraging to see everyone so positive and enthusiastic about performing.

This year is the 2nd anniversary of both our punk festival ‘A Crisis of Conscience’, and the national fundraiser ‘Musicians Against Homelessness’ started by Alan Mc Gee. Alan Mc Gee is the former manager of The Libertines, Primal Scream, Oasis, Jesus and the Marychain and the Happy Mondays.

Local & Loved Art Rocker Ria Parfitt to Exhibit at De Koffie Pot Gallery 10-17 March

10th-17th of March at De Koffie Pot, Bridge Street, Hereford HR4 9DG

Ria often focuses on certain facial features in her paintings, including the mouth. ‘

Artist and Musician Ria Parfitt has created a self-exploratory collection called ‘February – 28 Paintings in 28 Days’  A challenge she set upon herself to create and complete paintings in an allocated time frame that wasn’t very generous. She successfully completed her daily tasks which then transformed into a deeper, more profound journey of self reflection as to how she approached her work gaining an enlightened understanding that she was more confidant than she had perceived herself to be.

Her work has roots in surrealism but not in the classic sense, she embraces Magic Realism, but I also notice Pop Art influences. I think of Ria’s art and music with her band Mexicola as one of those summer fairs full of bright lights, lovers sharing candy floss, tents full of decadent cabaret performers and carousel music in the background – a journey into one of the cells of her mind I would love to hang out in.
