I have most recently been suuuuuper busy organising this grand event, Banana A-Peel..This beast has most recently taken over my life but wow! Has it been worth it. Hell YES.

30 Artists! 4 Bands! 1 Night!

Time: 6pm
Date: 24th February
Venue: Old Bar, 74 - 76 Johnston Street Fitzroy

Banana A-Peel is Melbourne's diverse arts community coming together to raise money for the victims of the recent flood disasters. More than thirty Melbourne based artists and musicians have generously donated their
talents for this charity art exhibition, auction and live show.

The exhibition opens on the 24th of February and kicks off at 6pm in the upstairs gallery at Old Bar, Fitzroy. Bidding starts at $20. Host for the night will be local comedian Andrew McClelland.

Music commences at 8pm with Melbourne bands The Book Of Ships, The Yard Apes, Skyscraper Stan and
The Once Overs all donating their time for the cause.

Entry cost is $8 and all proceeds will go directly to the Salvation Army Flood Appeal,
which supports both the Queensland and Victorian flood victims.

The exhibition runs until the 10thof March and a preview will be available on Facebook from the 15th of Feb so people who cannot attend the auction can still bid. 

So come down and have some fun whilst contributing to a great cause. Original art from $20...It doesn't get much better than that!

For those of you who can't make it check out the preview on-line.
