Description

Join us for a wig-shaking, head-banging evening as artists Archie Moore and David M. Thomas present a night of subtropical goth under their collaborative moniker ∑GG√E|N.

Metal post-punk band ∑GG√E|N are taking over the IMA and bringing their friends. This First Thursday promises to be exciting evening of classic rock, no-wave mayhem, video collage, tall wigs, and black leather! Led by Moore and Thomas styled as their face-painted alter egos Magnus O’Pus, and David Ethix alongside other members Chells Bells and Conwae Twitter, ∑GG√E|N will present an experience they describe as ‘subtropical goth and metal polyamory’.

This ‘polyamorous’ adventure will see them invite artists who moonlight as musicians (or musicians that moonlight as artists), to join them for the night. Guests include Sandra Selig, installation artist and one half of Brisbane’s electronic duo Primitive Motion and emerging Brisbane artist and musician Callum Galletly, with a special guest appearance by members of the extended Eggvein family - D'Wight Yokem (filmmaker/actor, Geoffrey Vagg). The infamous Wolvie Trash will play a DJ set of ‘No Wave/Gay Disco’, and digital media and performance artist Heath Franco, will join in collaboration with Moore and Thomas to create a full-on sensory experience.

The night coincides with the launch of ∑GG√E|N’s LP ∑√|££. Find out more on the IMA website here.
