The instalment of ‘Strawberry Boogie’ has made a swift return this year, beginning their first night at UOW’s Unibar last Wednesday. This event not only brought together a collection of live artists, but also Art, Photography, VJing and Multi-sensory Exhibitions, Performance Art and Comedy.

This collection of local creative talent is an initiative started by university graduate Jimmy Sherley, and now in support with Yours and Owls, 2017 is seeing a monthly return on to the university bars stage. In the past, ‘Strawberry Boogie’ has seen music talents from across Sydney, the South Coast and Newcastle, along with live art shows, cinematography, visual mixing and independent fashion from the Illawarra and Shoalhaven region.

Wednesday night’s opening act ‘Custom Sluts’ took to the stage with their garage inspired surf punk, followed up by ‘Miners’, ‘Unity Floors’ and ‘ADKOB’ to end the night on a groove. Throughout the night local artists Nicci Bedson and Tyler Rose provided live art displayed on a large screen and billboard to a crowd of onlookers, whilst Diana McLaren provided a comedy skit in the background. Also performing were Nuclear Reservoir with an erotic concept on display close to the live stage, delivering stories and Japanese Kimonos for those looking for a comfortable rest from the other artists. Off to the side of the venue saw the photography exhibition of Aden Mcleod, and multi-sensory Installations by Oh Boy.

Organiser and label manager of ‘Strawberry Visions’, Jimmy Sherley declared the night to be a great success, being “grateful for such a large collaboration of local artistic talents”, with “such a large input from female collaborators, which is a huge importance especially on International Women’s Day“.

Already, next months instalment has been announced for the 27th of April, which includes a line-up of ‘Good Boy’, ‘Jarrow’, ‘Archy Punker’, ‘Iffy’ and ‘Cosmic Spice’. Tickets have been released and the other live creative acts are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
